These tombstones were made from leftover acrylic sheets that I got for free. I ended up throwing them away after Halloween since these were too top heavy. I need styrofoam sheets to make my own tombstones. I do have store bought tombstones, it's just not the same as ones that I can create.

Sometimes I use a tomato cage and place one of my kids old Halloween costumes on top of the tomato cage. I'll make a paper mache head and after dried, I'll place the Halloween mask from the costume on the head.

The Cat's Meow pumpkin that I carved one year.

Many years ago I took glass jars, removed the food labels and cleaned them up. I painted (free handed) the ghost, pumpkin and spooky tree with acrylic paint. I place battery operated tea candles inside the jars. I use these every year.
