I made 3 pallet Tombstones, to go with my skeletons and Wooden Coffin. These are easy to make with limited tools. I used a couple of wide pallet boards, cut them off about 15” long. Then I found some scrap pieces, to nail them together. Took a old 5 gallon bucket, used it to trace the round top, used a Jigsaw to cut them. I them applied a coat of Steelwool and Vinegar to age the wood, let this dry overnight.
I had some old 7” long gutter nails, attached them with 9/16” staples. Open Word pad on the PC, type some names, I choose some Western Outlaws. Be sure and reverse when printing, I used a sheet of label paper, with the labels removed. Then apply to pallet and rub the ink in, you will have to paint over them. I used some Black craft paint. Now just stick them into the ground and enjoy.
