I love to entertain. Especially during the holidays. I was never a huge fan of Halloween until I married my husband, who was the Clark Griswold of Halloween. Since knowing him, and since having kiddos that take after him, I am becoming more and more of a Halloween girl. And since I love to have people over to eat, drink and be merry (scary?), of course I’m going to throw some sort of Halloween get together!
For the past two years I have invited a bunch of girlfriends over for a Drunkin’ Punkin’ carving party. Basically, we all gather with treats and drinks, a pumpkin…and knives. Lots and lots of knives. Safest party ever.
To get ready for my party, I decked the halls with all things spooky. But I needed a table centerpiece. I didn’t want it to be really elaborate since we’d be using the dining table for our pumpkin party and the centerpiece would need to be easily moved. And I wanted it to be something I can use again in the years to come.
As I wondered craft store aisles, I started to get an idea of what I wanted to do. And it turned out the be one of the easiest table centerpieces I’ve ever come up with! Here’s how you can make your own skull centerpiece for under $15!

- First, start drilling holes into the top of the plastic skull. Choose a drill bit that is slightly larger than the stems of your floral bunches. I drilled the holes in a rough circular pattern.
- Once you have your holes, cut the floral arrangements to where you have individual stems. Cut them long so you can cut more later depending on how high you want the stems to stick up from the skull.
- Start placing your stems into the holes of the skull. I placed all the floral stems first, then I filled in with the black sprays.
- Set your skull on a table runner, a Halloween placemat or a charger and surround with candles or whatever else you want to embellish it with. Enjoy!
Wasn’t that easy? I think it turned out great and it took me all of 10 minutes to create. I absolutely love simple and impactful DIY projects, don’t you?
