Halloween Centerpiece

still failing at being active here. :sweat_smile:

my mom doesn’t have a Halloween centerpiece for her dining room table (what have I been doing with my life?), so I decided to make one for her. I’ve been wanting to make one from a black plastic cauldron with glittery “bubbles” coming out of it like a witch’s cauldron, but I had no luck finding a cauldron and decided to go a different route. I grabbed a black funkin, some glittery Halloween picks, some black and orange table scatter/vase filler, and a styrofoam ball. this was the end result:

my dad had to cut the top off as it ended up being a harder job than I thought it would be, and I don’t have the strength in my left arm to hold the pumpkin still while cutting it. so he did that and put a coat of paint over it to cover up the exposed foam. my mom is SO in love with this, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I even got to include some candy corn (if you weren’t aware, I’m obsessed with the stuff).

(“… still failing at being active here …” - I don’t think there’s any such thing - whether it’s been 6 years or 6 minutes, it’s always nice to see Lettuce buddies and their creations :grinning:)

You could give me the same items and 40 years and I’d never be able to complete something so pretty and cute! Flower arranging and the like is definitely not in my wheelhouse. This is absolutely amazing! I love the candy corns!!! They’re my favorite part.
