Skull Centerpiece

easy sophisticated halloween tabletop decor

The Halloween decorating continues with this simple and crafty skull centerpiece. I picked up a few paper mache skulls at my craft store and had grand ideas of painting them a la Dia de los Muertos, then I thought I could just paint them white like a regular skull, then my true lazy crafter self stepped in and said to just leave them as is. I actually do like the natural texture from the unfinished paper mache skull and it adds to the sophisticated decor I’ve been after.

Using an x-acto knife, simply cut a round hole at the top of the skull to fit either a votive candle holder or shot glass, whatever you have on hand. Fill the holder with some water and insert into skull. Fill with Halloween-ish flowers. Check back in next week to see how I put together the witch hat and this skull for a simple and elegant tabletop.
