Step 1: Halloween Inspired Centerpiece

Step 1- Gather Your Materials

Card Stock Paper ( 3- Halloween colors)
Small fish bowl
Styrofoam plate
Styrofoam balls (1 large and 8 small ones) or clay
Glue Gun
Glue Sticks
Plastic Spiders
ek tool flower punch (I used the Retro Flower Puncher)

pipe cleaner

Step 2- Cutting Flowers

Using the ek tool puncher, punch out 16 flowers of each color.

Step 3- Make The Flowers 3D

Fold each pedal from each flower lengthwise to create a 3D effect as shown on the pictures.

Step 4- Gluing The Flowers

Using the glue gun, place a small dot of hot glue in the center of a flower. Then, place a second folded flower on top of the flower that has the glue. Both colors must be visible. The pedals should create a color pattern wheel. Finally, place a third folded flower of a different color in the same direction where you placed the initial flower. .

Step 5 Decorating The Flowers

Place a small amount of glue on some of the flowers and place a plastic spider.

Step 6 Cut The Styrofoam Balls

Cut all the styrofoam balls in half using a knife.

Step 7 Adding A Stem To The Flower

Using a half of a styrofoam ball, place glue on the back of a flower and place the flat end of the styrofoam ball. Then, place a small dot of glue on the curved surface of the already glued half styrofoam ball and place a toothpick through the styrofoam. The toothpick will be the stem of each flower. Repeat step 7 until all flowers have a stem.

Step 8 Creating A Base for the Bouquet

Using a styrofoam plate and the base of your small fishbowl, trace the bottom of the fishbowl with a pen. Then, use scissors to cut out the circle you just drew.

Step 9 Creating the Bouquet

Using the glue gun, place some glue on the center of the circle cutout from step 8 and glue the larger half a styrofoam ball. Then, begin placing the flowers on the recently glued styrofoam ball. Begin with the center flower as shown on the pictures and continue to place flowers side by side. Avoid leaving any empty spaces, but avoid overcrowding as well.

Step 10 Gluing Spiders

Glue a plastic spider on the center of each flower.

Step 11- Painting the Jack-O-Lantern

Using orange paint, coat a styrofoam ball several times until you reach your desired shade of orange. Then, using a Sharpie marker paint the Jack-O-Lantern's face. Finally, place a piece of green pipe cleaner to create a stem for the pumpkin.

Step 12- Hanging the Jack-O-Lantern

Using a thin piece of thread hang the Jack-O-Lantern from the styrofoam plate as shown on the pictures.

Step 13- Putting the Bouquet Together

Quickly place hot glue around the edge of the styrofoam plate and place immediately on the fishbowl.

Step 14- Place on a table and enjoy your Halloween party.
