Stylish DIY Halloween Centerpieces

by Elmer Fudd

Black Magic

I picked up Phyllis Hoffman Celebrate Halloween Magazine over the weekend, the magazine has some really cool and inspiring ideas for Halloween. I found some easy and simple centerpieces to create for Halloween that I thought you would enjoy. I think these are perfect for the tabletop and as decorations to display throughout your home to create a ghoulish but stylish atmosphere for your Halloween.

Black Magic Centerpiece

Things to gather:

White Carnations

Round vase

Black floral spray paint

Licorice sticks


Lightly spray the carnation blooms black, leaving some of the centers white. Fill the vase with water. Trim the stems of the flowers to the desired length. Slip the licorice sticks inside the vase to hide the flower stems. Tie the vase with a ribbon.

Bloomin’ Jack – o’- Lantern

Bloomin' Jack -o'- Lantern

Things to Gather

Narrow horizontal vase

Construction Paper

X-Acto  knife or scissors



Calla Lilies

Cut the construction paper the height of the vase and wide enough to wrap around it. Cut out the eyes, nose, and mouth of the jack-o-lantern. Wrap the paper around the vase, and tape in place. Trim the flower stems, but keep them long enough to show the mouth cutout-they become the jack-o-lantern’s teeth.

Spider Bouquet

Things to Gather

Plastic Spider

Fill the vase with water, or insert a waterproof container inside a decorative container. Cut stems of dahlias to fit the vase. Apply the spiderweb material over flowers and down the sides of the vase. Position of the spider in a prominent place.

Prepare floral foam by soaking it in water. Place the foam inside the urn. Paint the branches black, and let dry. Stick the branches into the foam. Fill the area between the branches with mums. Hang votive holders from the branches. Add tea lights.
