An easy way to build a graveyard scene is to make your own headstones from cardboard. Cut the card board in a tombstone shape and paint it gray. Think of funny epitaphs to write one each one. Bill is dead, the end, or Bill was a liar when he was alive, and now all he does is lie. Or write some funny names on them I.B. Dead or U. R. Next. Hang a sign that says “Welcome to Necropolis.You can also buy simple cardboard tombstones from an online Halloween catalog store. They have pre- made stones that are ready for you to set up. Some tombstones are made of cardboard and some are made of foam. These tombstones can be pre-assembled or you might have to put them together with the help of clips or glue. They might even be attached to a wooden stake that you just have to stick in the ground.

How ever you decide to get your tombstones, when you have them, place them where you want them in your yard. Wow, it’s starting to look pretty good, you are almost done! Put some leaves in front of each stone, so it looks like a burial mound. Get some fake spiderweb material and string it from one stone to the next. Use some glow in the dark paint to decorate the cemetery a little…don’t over do it, you want it to look macabre.

If you have any spot lights in your yard, why not set them up in the back of the tombstones. Don’t use too many, and make sure the wires are hidden safely away so no one trips over them. The lights will create some shadows in your graveyard and make it look spooky. You will only need one light for three or four headstones, so don’t over do the light…it won’t be scary if you do.

Get an old shirt or some gloves and fill them with newspaper or leaves. Have them hanging out of the burial mounds, like the dead who are buried there are rising. You can buy some bones, unless you happen to have a skeleton already laying around, and place them around the Halloween graveyard you have made in your front yard.
