Halloween Paper Centerpiece

ADORABLE Halloween Centerpiece tutorial on { lilluna.com } #halloween

In case you didn’t get to see it over at Eighteen25 last week, I thought I would post on here my tutorial for the Halloween Paper Centerpiece.

This project was SOOO much fun and would be an awesome craft nite with the girlfriends. I hope you like it. :)


– Box/Vase/Cart to use as Centerpiece Base
-Floral Foam (Found at the Dollar Store)
-Spanish Moss (Found at the Dollar Store)
-Foam Brush
-Scrapbook Paper
-Hot Glue


1. Begin by picking out your Halloween Paper (BEWARE: there are so many stinkin’ cute ones at the Scrapbook stores right now!!), and cut TWO 12 inch strips that are 1 inch – 2.5 inches wide (per accordion flower).

2. Put two strips together and fold back and forth until you are all the way through. Then, hot glue the two ends together as well as the other ends so it makes a circle.

3. Push edges of strips IN to make an accordion flower. Hot glue center and hold, and do the same on back. For another tutorial on these flowers, I used one HERE.

4. Paint skewers the desired color you’d like and let dry. I stuck mine into the floral foam to dry.

5. I wanted to add a little something to the skewers, so I cut out .2 inch white strips of vinyl and twisted them along the skewer.

My hubby is super smart and suggested I stick them in his drill, turn it on, and let the drill do the twisting. It takes seconds (isn’t he smart?).

6. Add buttons or other embellishments to your flowers. I used some of these FREE vintage Halloween Prints from Matthew Mead found HERE.


These images are no longer available via this link so here they are:





7. Hot glue skewers to backs of flowers. Set aside.

8. Add floral foam and moss to your centerpiece base. I got my Halloween Box at Hobby Lobby for $7. Not too bad. :)

9. Stick skewers through the moss and foam int your base and arrange as desired.

So fun, huh? Plus, it’s easy to make, unique, and could be made very inexpensively! What more could you ask for? :)

    Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I think that you simply could do with some % to power
    the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is magnificent
    blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

    A PPC campaign should be used to test your
    site against keyword phrases before you spend the time and money on an seo campaign. The price you offer
    your advertisers is not necessarily the most important factor that determines how happy your advertisers
    are with your service. They can offer suggestions, help and do everything they can to create a successful campaign.
