Are you wanting to make a spooky chic Halloween flower arrangement? This post is filled with ideas and tips for doing just that.
Last week I was excited to show you my spooky chic tablescape. That post was super long, so I couldn’t give you many details about the Halloween floral arrangement in the center of the table. That’s why I’m back today to break it down for you.
In case you missed that post, here’s what the full centerpiece looked like:
Lovely, but a little creepy, right? That was the goal!
DIY Halloween Flower Arrangement:
The inspiration for the arrangement came from this test tube vase I picked up at HomeGoods. I found it outside the Halloween section, but it works great for this application.
When I went shopping for flowers, I stopped at two places: Whole Foods and Michaels Craft Store.
Other than the farmers market, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s are my go-to places for inexpensive flowers. For this arrangement, I wanted flowers that had deep colors, an odd shape, or a creepy look.
I ended up with almost-black calla lilies, some burgundy flowers (I don’t know their name.), and seeded eucalyptus.
To add a bit more spook to the centerpiece, I also picked up feathers and a set of skeleton hands at Michaels.
Now let’s get to flower arranging!
How to Create a Halloween Flower Arrangement:
When I’m doing arrangements, I usually like to start with the greens. After filling the tubes with water, I tucked in some of the seeded eucalyptus followed by the calla lilies.
From there, I put in feathers for height and texture and then arranged the burgundy flowers. The final touch was the skeleton hands. They are on wire picks so it was easy to insert them in the vase. (Of course, you could also easily attach a wire pick to any skeleton hand or bone.)
And with that, my arrangement was complete.
I think the centerpiece works well with the tablescape and adds just the right amount of color. To tie it in with the rest of the dining room, I decided to display an orchid on the sideboard.
Orchids are another fabulous option for a Halloween flower arrangement if you’re not comfortable arranging fresh flowers.
