All you really need for this DIY Halloween decoration are fake gravestones. If you run out of time, these gravestones can be purchased at most stores with a Halloween decoration aisle. Otherwise, make your own! You can carve them out of styrofoam for a rain-resistant decoration, or paint cardboard if you’re sure the weather will hold fair (remember that morning dew will also damage cardboard). Do you or your kids remember playing Oregon Trail? Have your family create funny epitaphs for themselves and each other.
Once you’ve finished with the basics, why not spice things up? Nothing says “Halloween” like the dead rising from their graves. Fake hands, arms, or even full zombie torsos will be a terrifying but fun addition. You can paint mannequin parts for this, or make body part casts of your own. If zombies are too scary or don’t fit into your plan, add some ghosts instead! Shape chicken wire and cheesecloth into these beautiful, frightening decorations. Just make sure that you wear gloves so that the chicken wire doesn’t cut your fingers.
Since an overgrown graveyard is spookier than a well-tended one, it’s ok to let your yard maintenance go a little bit before Halloween. But when you’re ready to clean up again after, call Simply Green Lawn Care Plus for the best lawn care services in the Metro Atlanta area!
