Use permanent marker to sketch an outline for two tombstones. Keep shapes simple so it's easier to cut out. Tip: A five gallon bucket lid or splatter screen makes a great template for a round top tombstone.
Cut foam along sketched outline with a serrated bread knife. Since this step is messy, it's best to do it outside. Keep blade perpendicular to foam and use caution while cutting.
Sketch out tombstone design. This can be a funny saying, a cross, RIP or anything you'd like. Keep designs simple and easy to carve. Tip: The tombstones will be painted, so sketching mistakes will not be visible.
