Introduction: Cemetery Archway Entrance

Just like my Faux Fireplace, I also saw something out at a store like this, and this time it was very well crafted, but way more money than I was wanting to spend, so I figured I would make my own. Please keep in mind that this is made out of cardboard, so I would not suggest having it outside if it is raining.

Step 1: Step 1: Assembly

Ok, So again, using the same technique that I made my Faux Fireplace with, I used my leftover priority shipping boxes. This time since the boxes were bigger and a bit heavier, I had to put a couple of screws/bolts between each one to keep them together better.

Step 2: Step 2: Bonding Them Together

Using spray foam insulation, spray between the boxes. Let this dry, then scrape down the excess foam.

Step 3: Step 3: Paint

For the first coat, I used just plain gray spray paint. For the second coat, I used the fleckstone spray paint to cover the whole thing. This makes it look like real brick.

Step 4: Step 4: Making the Cemetary Arch

I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a long flexible piece of wood, and some foam letters. I hot glued the letters to the wood, and then bent the wood into an arch. I used tape from one end of the wood to the other to temporarily hold it into an arch. To keep the letters together at the bottoms, I used toothpicks to join them (This is why foam letters work best!) Then you spray the entire thing black.

Step 5: Step 5: Adding Decor, and Adding It to Your Halloween Scene

I added spider webs to the entire thing, and bought black birds and 2 stone gargoyles from the dollar store to make it look better. Then just add to your Halloween Scene, and enjoy!!
