How to Make a Halloween Centerpiece


  • Make your bow for your pumpkin cauldron centerpiece. Make the tail 7 inches and then twist. Then make your next loop at 5 inches. Then another loop at 5 inches. Repeat again and then cut the tail. 
  • Now grab your next spool of ribbon. Simply take this one and take the tail up and do one look that is a little bit shorter than the other. Measure it at 4 and half inches. Then repeat and twist. Cut the tail on that strand. Now cable tie the center and turn it around and fluff your bow.
  • Once you have fluffed your bow in the back use a pipe cleaner and slide it in and then clamp your zip tie all the way. Now cover your center by taking a strand of ribbon and folding it and then tying it in the back. 
  • Grab your pick of choice. I am using these fun Halloween eyeball picks. I will cut the eyeballs that are paired together off. Now layer the picks together with the eyeballs and the fun colored balls. Trim your picks to all the same length by cutting the bottoms off.
  • Go ahead and cable tie your picks together. You can do 2 to 3 zip ties to make sure they are nice and secured. Pay attention to your eyeballs and give them a little tug to make them pop out more. 
  • Take your pumpkin cauldron basket and place the picks inside to one side. You will take a cable tie and attach the pick to the handle of your pumpkin cauldron. Use a pipe cleaner to wrap around the green table ties to hide them in your centerpiece. You might want to use a black pipe cleaner. 
  • Using your bow you just made and add right to the side and tie it to the picks and handle. 

How To Turn Your Halloween Centerpiece into a Fall Centerpiece
