Head of the Table Skull Centerpiece

Channel Morticia Addams to create and add a gothic, otherwordly touch to your dining table with a skull centerpiece adorned with self-adhesive rhinestones. Place a jar or cup inside a faux skull with a removable top (you can use small rocks or gravel to help keep the cup in place). Then create a grid of tape on the rim of the jar to keep flower and greenery stems in place. Fill ⅔ with water and begin by arranging greenery and larger blooms in the grid, making sure to remove any leaves or extra stems that will sit below the water line. Finish with more delicate flowers.

Eyeball Vases

Use these eerie vessels as vases, or as cocktail glasses (they’re food safe as long as the liquid doesn’t come in contact with the decoupaged artwork). Gather a mix of clean recycled bottles and jars, bud vases and chemistry flasks, then download our eyeball clip art and print onto regular printer paper. Cut out the eye shapes to fit to the bottom of the jars. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge to the bottom exterior of the glass and place your cut paper (artwork-side down) on top. Smooth out any air bubbles or wrinkles with your fingers and let dry. Paint on a couple additional layers of Mod Podge to seal and let dry several hours.
