This is Halloween prop is a pretty simple design. We made the tombstone out of plywood, sprayed it with grey, and black to look like it’s made of stone.
The rocking effect gives it the illusion of someone trying to break out of the ground. In order to add to this, I found a cheap skeleton hand and popped it up from the ground in front of the tombstone.
Adding a Purple / Blue Spotlight enhances the effect even more.
