When I think of centerpieces, I usually think of things like candles, vintages candles sticks. Well guess its Halloween so what's best stuff things like a many cemetery say perhaps some spooky fruit instead they're both unexpected center pieces absolutely perfect for Halloween.
I'm going to show you how to make both of them first step we are going to work on our spooky fruit which is super cute on a big bowl what you need first of all is to take a little trip to your thrift store and look for some plastic fruit. You can't find it that your thrift store you can also find it at the craft store there's a whole full fruit aisle in front you. So I've got some oranges and peers all kind of stuff. And then the next thing is take it off side and get some spray paint that’s design for plastic and give it a good ones silver. Lets have to do several coats get it completely peach black because that’s the effect you want to go for.
Its going to look something like this, which is cute as it, is. But not as cute it would if we paint a little face on it. So that is, were our white craft paint comes in and I'm using a very fine tip paint brush for this. Because you know your going to get kind of detailed and I'm just going to do you know one little eye here just you know you could do a little Jack O Lantern faces you can get as tricky as you want to on this. I'm not much of an artist crafter I am artist I am not. Just filing in let it dry, you can also use color paint if you would like another option.
When you have a bunch of them all done you could use them to fill it a clear base like this for kind of a fancier effect, or you could fill up a plain old fruit ball with them. You might mix it in with your real life fruit so like what say dads like “I want a banana like breakfast wow, wow, wow—what's that!” Makes fun centerpiece start with fun to have one to your counter and says Halloween all over it.
Next step we have a Halloween lean terrarium or would I like to call a terrarium because there are no living plants inside. The first thing you need for your terrarium is a big glass jar. Something like that you want to look at something that came out of some evil doctor’s labs, something die ball cool and fun like that. And you can find these a craft store—so the next thing you want to do is you want to add the dirt in your graveyard and we are going to use just decorate of sand for that. You can get this at the craft store at aquarium gravel also works nice. Fill it up about two to three inches just to give you some flat ground covers so that we can stick all other fun stuff in it.
Fun stuff like say an arbor, which is actually just some craft wood that we glued together to give that effect but then we spray painted it with—yes, there is spray paint with a full rock finish, which is perfect for things like making little baby cemeteries and we use those for the arbor. But then we use this little craft is to create the head stones. So it looks like an oval now about the time I buried in my sand it’s going to look like a little head stone. And once you're done and they're dry you can get a paint marker you just write on their rest in peace whatever you want. And then you want to fill it up with other fun stuff we have little bitty baby pumpkins it can go all sprinkled around the bottom.
We have a twig because what is the cemetery without a creepy old spooky tree to better we don’t have a little baby owl to put in there. Stick him in the sand looks cute and then we need a little spec of color in there so that’s where our green filth is going to come in and we are just going to cut up a little path leaning up to our arbor. Then the finishing piece, peace in the resistant we of course need fog so you get your pillow budding and just kind of spread it out and you just kind of sprinkle it on top of everything they just kind give it that look creepy fog effect on everything.
And so then once your done you can just put your terrarium as your centerpiece you can set it up on a counter same with your spooky fruit and remember both of this things will last until next year. So not only can you have a spooky Halloween this year you can also look forward to another spooky Halloween next year.
