Retro Halloween Paper Centerpiece

A cool Halloween centerpiece can take a party to the next level. If you would like to make a homemade Halloween centerpiece that really stands out, here is a great idea. I love the retro look of this Halloween paper craft! This quick and easy project was SOOO much fun and would be an awesome craft night with the girls. I hope you like it.

SUPPLIES NEEDED
  • Box/Vase/Cart to use as Centerpiece Base
  • Floral Foam 
  • Spanish Moss 
  • Skewers
  • Paint
  • Foam or Paint Brush
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Hot Glue
  • Embellishments
WHAT TO DO
  • Follow pictures below.
  • Begin by picking out your Halloween Paper, and cut TWO 12 inch strips that are 1 inch – 2.5 inches wide (per accordion flower).
  • 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.
  • Push edges of strips IN to make an accordion flower. Hot glue center and hold, and do the same on back.
  • Paint skewers the desired color you’d like and let dry. You stick them into floral foam to dry.
  • If you'd like you can add stripes to your painted sticks. Cut out .2 inch white strips of vinyl and twisted them along the skewer.
  • Add buttons or other embellishments to your flowers. For a cute retro flair, you can add some of these FREE vintage Halloween Prints from Matthew Mead.
  • Hot glue skewers to backs of flowers. Set aside.
  • Add floral foam and moss to your centerpiece base, you can find these at the dollar or craft stores.
  • Stick skewers through the moss and foam in 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? Go and be creative!
