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.

How-to-Make-a-Mini-Mouse-Centerpiece

Mini Mouse is a favorite of wee girls, and having a Mini Mouse themed birthday party tops the popularity chart! And for all those boys who adore Mickey Mouse, just change up the color palette to red, blue, green or yellow!

We have a fun, easy and kid friendly make-your-own Mini Mouse centerpiece this week that is sure to make some little girls smile! It sure made ours flash her pearlies.

Shopping List:

1) 2 x smaller Styrofoam balls (for ears)

2) 1 x larger Styrofoam ball (for head)

3) 2 x toothpicks

4) 1 x craft stick, skewer, or baking stick

5) washi tape

6) 4″ cube blumebox

7) 10 x pink gerbera daisies

How To Make It:

1) Get your children to help!

2) Paint all three Styrofoam balls with black paint. Let dry.

3) Decorate 4″ blumebox cube with washi tape. We created two lines.

4) Push toothpicks half way into the two smaller (ears) Styrofoam balls.

5) Place one ear into the left of the larger Styrofoam ball (the head) and then place the second ear into the right side of the head. Wrap a pink ribbon around one ear.

6) To decorate the stick that holds Mini’s head, roll out a strip of washi tape long enough to wrap length of craft stick, skewer or baking stick. Then wrap.

7) Peirce base of mini’s head with decorative stick. Presto…you have a 3-d mini mouse silhouette ready to go inside your floral arrangement.

8) Arrange pink gerberas inside 4″ cube blumebox and then insert your mini mouse silhouette on a stick into arrangement. This could also work great as a candy arrangement. Instead of florals fill the blumebox with candy and poke mini mouse on a stick through center of candy.

Making-a-silver-glittered-blumebox-centerpiece

When I spotted this two tone gold glittered mason jar on Pinterest, I immediately tagged it to my pinspiration board to try out on a blumebox.

On hand, I had silver glittery ribbon that I figured might just work as easily and with less mess than glitter. And easy it was. I cut the ribbon in strips that fit around the circumference of the 4″ cube blumebox and started gluing from the bottom and worked my way up. I stopped 1/3 of the way up the box, but you could cover to whatever your preference.

If you choose to use glitter, follow the instructions here on lilyshop.

We absolutely loved the results and know this would be stunning at a winter wedding, formal event and sparkling for a New Years party!
