From lawn Halloween decor, we go to a craft project that you can do for your scrapbook. To make these cute paper tombstones, you will need rectangular pieces of paper, a corner puncher, chalk in charcoal, and red Stickles. You will also need your computer to print on the tombstones.

For this particular DIY tombstone, you will also be using styrofoam. To carve the details, you will melt the design you choose using a soldering tool.
