Hallowed Ground

Make Your Own Scripture Inscribed Tombstones – for your front yard, a great way to share your faith on Halloween

  1. Cut tombstone shapes out of exterior grade plywood, be creative and vary the sizes and shapes.
  2. Next, attach pieces of wood trim, rosettes, or wood decals to create depth.
  3. Mix gray exterior latex paint with an equal amount sand, (just plain-old-regular sand) paint the tombstones with this mixture – apply liberally. Paint will dry to a rough stone-like texture.
  4. When paint has fully dried, you can use white and black paints to age the stones. Use a dry-brush or sponge techniques to achieve a stone look.
  5. Lastly, when all is dry, use a paint pen to inscribe scriptures to the face of each tombstone.

What scriptures to use? Here is a list of the scriptures I used for my Tombstones, you can use any scriptures about death or the grave.
