rip floral graveyard sign

Transform these lawn decorative gravestones into floral glow-in-the-dark accent pieces. They are perfect to DIY for any doorway or yard.
Step 1

In a well-ventilated area, spray glow-in-the-dark paint over the gravestones. Use a piece of cardboard to protect your workspace. Apply several coats.

TIP: This paint reacts in the dark after it has been in the bright sun. When you apply the paint, it looks clear so you will still see the features of the tombstones.

Step 2
Accent the gravestones with multi-surface paint as desired.
Step 3
Cut apart a floral bush. Leave a 2" [5.1 cm] stem to each flower.
Step 4
Add a dab of hot glue to each stems end, then push them into the foam gravestone.
Step 5

Hot glue Spanish moss around the floral for additional interest.
