Halloween is a great opportunity to build stuff with my kids. This year we decided to build tombstones decorations. I used some pieces of scrap MDF, some paint and a few Halloween decorations I bought at the dollar store.
Cut the MDF panels and the RIP letters with a bandsaw and/or a jigsaw
Glue the letters onto the MDF panels
Mix some paint with sand and spread over the tombstones
Decorate with some cheap stuff from the dollar store
