Homemade Gravestones

In our local area, buying styrofoam tombstones costs around $25. Now many DIY methods of making tombstones involve buying plywood and cutting it with power tools, but my method is simple enough that no power tools are needed. As far as budget goes, we spent $50 and make six good size tombstones.
