front yard graveyard

October 8, 2007 at 4:28 pm Leave a comment

Last year I turned our front yard into a humorous grave yard. I was amazed at how many people stopped and walked thru to check them out.

Here’s how:

  1. Cut out “grave” shapes from study white cardboard (I went to a artist supply store) and spray paint them grey. For shape inspiration, I googled “old gravestones” on google images.
  2. Using a paint pen (standard permanant markers don’t work) write directly on the cardboard.
  3. For some ideas see below.

Here’s a few things I wrote on my gravestones:

  • Sponsored by Taco Bell
  • “Man who walks behind car gets exhausted” Bill M. Later
  • Here lies my wife, she rests in piece now so do I
  • “Man who farts in church sits in own pew” Kerry Me Off
  • “Support bacteria, it’s the only culture some people have.” A. Live Dawn Under
  • Here lies Ned. There is nothing more to be said because we like to speak well of the dead.
  • I was somebody. Who I was is no business of yours.
  • I would rather be here than in Texas
  • I told you that I was sick!
  • Friends help you move. Real friends help you move bodies.”
