Draw an outline of your tombstone with a black marker onto a Styrofoam sheet. Cut out your tombstone.
Draw your letters and desired design onto the face of the tombstone.
Carve out your design with a knife or wood-burning tool.
Spray your tombstone with gray paint. Let it dry.
Dip a sea sponge first into the white paint, then the black paint, and then dab the sponge onto a piece of paper towel. Blot the tombstone with the sea sponge. Repeat until the entire tombstone has been blotted. Allow to dry.
Paint the carved areas with black paint and let dry.
Push half of the dowel into the bottom and center of the tombstone. Push the other half of the dowel into the ground to secure the tombstone. Add some spooky lighting, props like a monster glove coming out of the ground, and other details to give your visitors a creepy and memorable Halloween.
