Let’s Look At- More Halloween
Skulls can bring bright flowers to dark places!!
Embellish the food and drinks stations with fall flowers to draw attention to the areas. Halloween can be filled with dark spaces! It’s really not Halloween unless it’s dark!! Brighten the dark spaces with the bright colors of fall flowers. These are examples of decorating with skulls.
In the first example, the skull is used as a backdrop to draw attention to the smaller eyeball containers. This is a fun project, but tricky! I used a Dremel tool to cut a hole at the top of the eyeball. I also used a PVC coupling as a stand for the eyeball. For these eyeballs, I used a 1 ½” coupling
Before you cut a hole, create feet for the eyeball with hot glue. Determine where you want the pupil to rest. Carefully, place dots of hot glue on the bottom of the eyeball to create stability. Quickly, immerse the eyeball in water to cool the hot glue. Use a marker to mark where to place the opening for the flowers.
Place the eyeball in the PVC coupling with the mark at the top. Carefully, create a hole, only about ½”. Remember, the rotary tool moves very fast.
To fix arrangement, I did a small grouping of blooms and secured them with floral wrap tape. Fill the eyeball with water. Cut the stems to fit in the eyeball, with the floral tape just below the opening. Place in the water filled eye!
In the second example, I filled the opening of a skull filled with wet foam. The arrangement was made using miniature roses, miniature carnations, and pom-poms. I hid the wet foam by placing miniature rose blooms in the eye sockets!
Brighten your Halloween gathering by using fresh flowers!
