DIY halloween Flex Bond Tombstones

This year I wanted to build some tombstones and start to replace our styrofoam ones. The styrofoam is good but they break, blow around (in high winds) and are a bit pricey compared to how long they last. So, I thought it'd be nice to build a few this year and so on over the next few years. In the meantime, we'll keep the styrofoam headstones around and blend in the new ones.


Sizing/Gluing

Since I'm a builder, my 1st thought was to make them out of OSB plywood and that's what I did. I used sheets of OSB from Home Depot, ripped them down to the sizes I wanted and then glued three of the same size together with liquid nails.


I glued and clamped these together but you can screw them if you need to. A screw in each corner and a few in the middle should work fine. You just want no shifting between materials as the Flew Bond is thin and it may crack. Although it is easily fixable, we don't want cracks. If you glued them, let them sit overnight, that's what I did.
