These photos show a combination of Easter and Vacation Bible School. The tomb was used for both. I love to be able to repurpose my work. The arch was cut down and made into a 'fireplace' on stage for Christmas this year....complete with a faux working fire and mantle. The walls had been used as Pharaoh's palace for VBS last year...so we covered them in stones for this year's production.
The tomb's 3-D structure is foam pieces braced to hold up the 'roof' which is a paint tarp that I painted to look like 'sand/dirt' and added some more rocks and greenery. I started with plain foam board and then made the 'rocks' individually and glued them on before painting the whole thing. To put the bracing together with the stone façade, I used 4" common nails, so it could be dismantled and stored flat.
