Introduction: Upcycled Pizza Box Headstone
Pizza and Halloween- two of my favorite things... so, lets see what we will get when both come together.
BTW. I did this with my 5 year old kid and we had lots of fun
2 pizza boxes
Glue and some extra cardboard
Acrylic paint in black, white and red
Step 1: Have Some Pizza Then Have Fun
It takes two pizza boxes per tombstone. Bring them together at a one side.
Fix it with tape.
Step 2: Carving the Shape
Up next, draw the shape of your headstone on the boxes.
Anything round or crosses will do well.
Cut the lid and the bottom of the boxes.
Do not cut off the sides.
Next, use tape to fix the sides to the new shape.
Then apply some ornaments like patterns, skulls, letters. Either add some made from extra cardboard or cut out from the box.
Another option is ‚printing‘ lines with a glue gun.
You are almost done!
Step 3: Paint It Black
Up next comes paint.
I applied black and white with an old kitchen sponge, trying to fake the surface of a weathered stone. Simply dip it into the paint and keep poking :)
Let it dry
Step 4: Its All in the Details
If you feel like it, add things like cobwebs, blood stains or dye some cotton balls in green to make some moss.
I went for the obvious pentagram and some hand prints in blood red paint.
Well. You are done!
