    How did you attach the PVC ring to the Styrofoam? What size is the “ring” & what size is the “pole” since one fit’s inside the other? And finally, what size rebar did you use? Thanks again for any info that you can forward on to us. Happy Haunting in the Future.

      I had leftover PVC and existing rebar, so I kept testing what would fit with each other. The hardware store PVC section is like Lego parts, so I just bring a scrap & test fit pieces until I find one that works. I had originally planned the junction fitting to be glued into the base so I could remove the gravestone sections from the rebar during the week and put them back in projector position easily & quickly, but I ended up just leaving them in position for about 6 weeks since my grass was dying anyway. If you’re leaving them up, the junction piece doesn’t do anything. The graveyard fence uses the same theory, with 1/2″ PVC fitting over thick 3ft long rebar, but I don’t know the rebar size. I had to buy smaller PVC and thinner & shorter rebar for the smaller gravestones since there were no corners to hide the PVC. I found Liquid Nails construction adhesive advertised for use with foam, but I needed a thick bead to keep it attached in the corners through all the wind we had, more glue than this photo shows. I went though about 5 big tubes of that Liquid Nails for all of these! Happy Haunting & good luck with your projects! 🙂
