Spider-Web-Vase-With-A-Sharpie

Folks, this is one easy and fun project you or your children can do in seconds to decorate your home for Halloween, give as a gift for a teacher, or use as a plate stand to display treats for that Halloween party!

This project requires a blumebox, a black sharpie and some spiders. We recommend drawing on a flat blumebox to make things easier, but that is up to you!

Once you start your web, you will have a hard time stopping! Keep it to one side or carry it over the four panels. Adhere a spider or two and fill with flowers and you have a very festive Halloween floral arrangement. In place of flowers…plop a pumpkin on top and you have yourself a centerpiece. . . or place a plate of treats on top and you have yourself one personalized dessert stand.

Of course the fun and creativity does not stop there . . . make a collection of designs that includes a bat, a witch and ghost and run them down a table!

halloween-2013-blumebuds

Blumebuds are the perfect size display boxes for your Halloween needs. From party table decor, fun place settings ideas or a creative way to give treats, the blumebuds are available in festive orange and black.

Shown here, we mixed things up by displaying candy kebabs and toy spiders (that we glued on a stick and wrapped with washi tape). The card that comes with the blumebuds can be personalized to suit the occasion or the place setting.

Spooktacular Idea . . . Purchase a 6-pack of blumebuds and give out one to each of your kids teachers!

Halloween-2013-Candycorn-Centerpiece-Tutorial

October already? Really? Well that of coarse brings us closer to our favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN!

We love this easy and festive do-it-yourself candy corn boxes made from 4″ cube, blumeboxes, 6″ blumeboxes and 8″ blumeboxes. With some spray paint you can transform a blumebox into candy corn table centerpieces in no time.

You can use white, orange or yellow blumeboxes. We used yellow blumeboxes and used white and orange spray paint.

Make sure all spraying is done in a well ventilated area. We highly recommend outside if possible. Lay out some newspaper and start spraying. We found it easiest to have the blumebox standing on the newsprint to spray. Pick up the box just after spraying to avoid the box from sticking to the newsprint. Let dry and then reapply. Continue on to next color till you have yourself a collection of pretty cool candy corn striped boxes to hold all those treats!

Mix up the colors on this and you could have a fun and easy way to create ombre centerpieces in the color of your choice.

We love a good DIY project, so when we spotted this super cool mini pumpkin & moss centerpiece in The Party Dress Magazine, we were all over it.

Talk about simple…this table was brought to life in 20 minutes. Seriously. I had 20 minutes to spare, before my 3′ tall assistants modified the set. So I got to work and with a few easy steps the table came together nicely.

To start I drilled small holes carefully into the pumpkins so that the kebab skewers could be inserted. I filled the wholes with Oasis Floral Adhesive to secure the skewer to pumpkin. Seven mini pumpkins and a stick later, I began inserting them into a 5″ Styrofoam ball. From here, I filled in all the white areas with moss. Now you could get away with not gluing in this step, but I wanted to secure the moss, so I used more of the floral adhesive to do so. Once all areas are covered, the pumpkin orb is ready to be mounted on the blumebox of your choice. Here we used an 8″ white blumebox.

Recreate this look for a Halloween party using orange pumpkins.

The inspiration for our Halloween shoot came from some free printables, ghost Peeps, and our cake pop display box.

Let’s face it, candy will always be the focal point of a Halloween party. For that reason, we customized a blumebox cake pop display box to show off some spooktacular seasonal sweets!

We found some free printables over on the fabulous Anders Ruff that we used on the front of the box, that spearheaded the look. With the addition of dotted washi tape around the 4″blumebox cube the container was complete.

Now onto the sweet and scary stuff…we wrapped baking sticks with decorative washi tape for the bases for our ghost Peeps and spiders. (The spiders are not edible and glued onto the sticks.) And to top off this easy and customizable candy box, we filled the top with orange Reese’s Pieces. Lucky for us and our sweet tooth, the yellow and brown pieces did not look good!
