Our Halloween project - Thombstones

I know you can by these for next to nothing in supermarkets, but it is so much more fun to make them :) We used two blocks of polystyrene that came in a box when we bought our TV, some left over wall paint (handy it was mushroom colour), craft knives, hot glue and some moss that we collected ages ago on a walk near the river ( I knew it would come in handy one day) :) Unfortunately, after we painted them we left it to dry outside and it started raining. Some paint got washed down. But I think it gives it slightly more aged look :) The end result looks really great and we will be using them tomorrow for our front yard decoration :)
