Thanks for the compliments Andretti. I will post more pics as I get them done. (Have Freddy Krueger done but need to take his pic.) I will take pics of my yard when I get it set up. :222358b:

Marilyn, please feel free to make all the tombstones like this you want. I will also be putting up some wooden painted pumpkins that I made with scrap wood. I am addicted to Halloween as well. Since I have no kids I'm not really bound by scary or not scary decor.
I really like The Great Pumpkin too. Do you have a Target Store near you because they have a large cutout (36" tall) at the ones in Lexington, KY of Snoopy on the great pumpkin. It costs around 20.00.

When you start to make you tombstones, please Follow St0ney's advice and vary the shape of them if you have the right power tools.

Yep make what-ever you want to Make

grinner - Came up with a this great Idea to add a painted shaded pumpkin pattern to the tombstone.

I don't know if I'll have the time, But will make some Clean Blow-Up-able (it's a St0ney word)
Tombstone templates and Post them on the Board, Just Outlines to Print Out.

And Yea - I'm limited to what I can put out, My daughter scares easy, and freaks the hell out
with zombies and such, Spooky will not be in for a few years.

Here's Freddy Krueger. I painted him before getting all the excellent help and advice from St0ney. I think if I use a black light he'll kind of pop off the tombstone.

Now for a really good picture. This is St0ney's Beep Beeps Sad pattern (otherwise known as Pennywise from Stephen King's It). Using the graphics and advice from St0ney I think he's my favorite so far.

Thanks for the compliments. I've finished a couple of more tombstones. First up is Chucky.

I've decided to hold off on anymore modern "killers" for now and start on the classic monsters. Here is the original Count Dracula.

Hope you like them.
