DIY Halloween Floral Arrangements

Brittany, the uber talent lady behind One Charming Party got in touch recently to see if I might like to share one of her recent projects with you. Of course I said “yes”…I mean come on…she is just too good. Here she shows us how to take simple supplies and make a truly spook-tacular floral display for your home or Halloween party. Take it away Brittany!

Using black and white flowers and incorporating hues of grey, you’re sure to instantly set a frightfully fun mood this Halloween. And you don’t need to splurge on vases for these spooky decorations. Pull out your cans from the recycle bin and spray paint the cans black or leave them plain. You can even glue two cans on top of each other, just hide the seam with some ribbon (only the top can is used for flowers and water, but it gives the illusion of a taller vase).

Then add feathers, mini signs (made with black paper and a white paint pen from the craft store), moss or painted branches to add interest to your Halloween floral arrangements. But most of all, have fun with it.


We used a variety of flowers in these arrangements: ranunculus, dusty miller, gerbera daisies, berzelia, scabiosa (with the centers painted black with acrylic paint), rudbeckia seed heads, football mums, Spanish moss, and a manzanita branch.
