PLACEMENT OF HALLOWEEN GRAVEYARD TOMBSTONES
The placement and securing of your Halloween tombstones is very
important, both for appearance and to keep them from falling
We like to keep our cemetery looking old and foreboding. Use as
many different styles of tombstones as you can and place them
unevenly throughout your graveyard. Be sure to set some of them
crooked or misaligned to give it that unkempt look.
as many different styles of tombstones
as you can afford to buy and/or make. Try to buy better
quality tombstones if you can, they look much more realistic
than less expensive ones and will last longer since they can take more abuse.
If this is your
first year to add tombstones or a graveyard to your
Halloween haunt start out with a
dozen or more then add a few more every year. In a few years
you'll have a very impressive graveyard filled with
tombstones for your Halloween
your tombstones remember that graves in a "real" cemetery
are usually spaced about 7 feet from row to row, but you can
take a few liberties with distances.
While you don't have to
space them out just right, you do want to give the illusion
of there really being graves there, so you want to space out
your tombstones. Leave at least a foot or two between the
stones side to side, and 4 feet or more from row to row. We
like to tilt some of the tombstones so that the graveyard
looks old and dilapidated.
