Mirror Turned Tombstone DIY

Halloween Season has begun!

Hip Hip Hooray!


Let the decorating, costume planning and treat making begin!

I had this mirror from our dresser just laying around. I knew I could upcycle it into something and with Halloween on my mind, I knew just what to make.


I took out the glass and started the painting.

I used Rustoleum gray paint and this


Perfect for a DIY tombstone. I sprayed with regular gray first and then used the textured paint.

After a trip to Michael’s, I added letters.

Disclaimer: If you by chance went to Monterey High School or you are my mother, I apologize in advance. My mother not only went to this school but she also worked there. Double whammy!

In high school, our rival was a school called Monterey. Every year when we played them, we had a very morbid themed pep rally. Think dancing to Michael Jackson’s Thriller with zombies and a tombstone with Mont E. Rey on it.

So, here we go. I added the words and the cross, then painted.


I added it to the collection of tombstones I already had on the porch.

I am so happy this old mirror has a new lease on life as a tombstone. Perfect for my Halloween porch

aka grave yard
