HALLOWEEN DIY CREEPY EYE FLOWERS

DIY HALLOWEEN TABLE CENTERPIECE

I have been crazy busy getting all the online shops ready for Halloween.  This year I will also be hosting a Halloween costume party and have been working on a few DIY spooky decorations.  Today I am sharing this super easy Halloween table centerpiece made with purchased paper or silk roses and fake eyeballs.  See below for the How to for putting these together to get your home ready for this Halloween.

SUPPLIES:

  • Silk or Paper Roses (a dark color is best in purple or black)
  • Other fall florals or tall grasses for your arrangement (dried in greens, browns, and black are best)
  • Fake Eyeballs
  •  Floral styrofoam, glass beads, moss, or other filler for your vase
  • Glue or Hot Glue Gun (a quick drying adhesive glue is best or hot glue and glue gun)
  • Black Glitter Glue (Stickles is my preferred brand)

INSTRUCTIONS:

1.) Gather your supplies. Start by pulling out all the center petals of your fake roses, careful not to remove any of the outer petals.  Spread your petals open and away from the center. Once you have a cleared open area in the center of your roses, work on one rose at a time and add your adhesive or glue to the bottom center of the cleared area of the rose.

2.) Carefully place your eyeball in the center of the rose, positioning the pupils of the eye where you want them.  They look best with the pupils facing or looking downward, rather than straight up and perfectly centered.  Place in a vase and allow your glue to set for a few minutes and move on to making your next creepy eyeball flower.

3.) Once all your eyeballs are set and dried in the roses, you can start adding the black glitter glue.  Start from the center of the rose and work outward, adding a generous line to the top of each petal where it bends.  Apply the black glitter glue all the way around each rose, careful not to touch any of the wet areas.  The wet glitter glue will look somewhat goopy at this point, before it dries.

Set each rose aside in a vase, separate each one so they are not touching.  It is best to let them dry overnight or at least for a few hours.

4.) After your creepy eyeball flowers have completely dried, select your vase for displaying and use floral foam in the bottom to add in your other floral elements behind your roses.  For a Halloween table centerpiece, the taller dried bamboo and other dry grass type florals look best with the creepy roses.   If using a clear vase, use some black moss or other glass beads or black sand for filler and to hide your floral foam and bottom of your stems.

All done! Now find the perfect place to display your spooky Halloween table centerpiece.
