Petal Skirt Halloween Costume DIY

Need an easy last minute Halloween costume that’s a floral phenomenon? This flower petal skirt is your jam.

DIY Halloween 2018-23

You will need:

  • paint in your choice of color (watercolor or acrylic)
  • paintbrush
  • sharpie or pen to draw a petal shape
  • scissors
  • cute string/twine
  • 24×18″ poster board (the amount will vary on how large you make your petals
  • hole puncher

Step 1

 

Sketch out the shape of a petal on the poster board and cut it out! Repeat with as many petals as necessary (we made a few extra petals so they would overlap when the skirt was put on).

Step 2

DIY Halloween 2018-26

Paint your petals! We used a mix of pinks, coral, and yellow. Watercolor paints make for a light, delicate look, while acrylic paints are a little more bold. We mixed a little water with our acrylic paints for a look right in between.

Step 3

DIY Halloween 2018-27

Hole punch (or give them a little stab with the scissors, depending on how dangerously you live) two small holes on the top of each petal, one on each of the furthest top outer corners. String the petals together with string of your choice. It doesn’t show very much once the petals are strung together, but we chose to use a pretty, metallic ribbon. Because why not more shine??

Fin!

Bloody Cute Placemats and Table Runner

Halloween is a great holiday for throwing spooky parties, but sometimes you want to be creepy and classy. Our blood-splattered placemats and blood drip table runner are the perfect way to accomplish this (and keep your table safe from messy monsters).

You’ll need:

DIY Halloween 2018-13

  • white poster board (two placemats will fit on one 24″ x 18″ sheet, so adjust according to how many placemats you need)
  • our placemat template (attached at the bottom!)
  • a pen
  • scissors
  • dark red paint
  • a paint brush
  • a roll of red paper (craft, wrapping, or otherwise)

Blood-Splattered Placemats

Step 1

DIY Halloween 2018-14

Print out our placemat template, and cut those bad boys out!

Step 2

Trace the template on the poster board, and cut your placemat out! The poster board gives your placemats much more structure, and a nice gloss finish. Cut out as many as you’ll need for your table!

Step 3

DIY Halloween 2018-17

This is the fun part! Splatter the heck out of these placemats with a deep, dark, red paint. We recommend doing this step on a Monday, or any day where you’re frustrated. It makes it much more gratifying. All done with the placemats!

Blood Drip Table Runner

Step 1

 

For the blood table runner, take your red paper, and free-hand a drip design the length of your table, and cut it out.

Step 2

DIY Halloween 2018-21

If you need to piece the paper together to get it to the length of your table, just put a little piece of tape on the back! Now you have a perfect runner backdrop for your placemats.

Batty Halloween Headband

Trying to find cute accessories to show your love of the spooky season can be ghoulish, but we have your back with this adorable, batty headband DIY!

You’ll need:

DIY Halloween 2018-2

  • a hot glue gun
  • a plastic headband in the color of your choice
  • two 3-4″ black springs of a medium gauge
  • our bat printable (scroll to the bottom!)
  • scissors
  • (optional) construction paper in the color of your choice

Step 1

DIY Halloween 2018-3

Print out our little bats! You have a few options here:

  • if you want black bats, print out two of the bat printable (so you have four bats total)
  • if you want bats of a different color, print out one bat printable (so you have two bats total)

If you’ve chosen the first option, cut the bats out so you have four black bats. If you’ve chosen the second option, cut out your two bats, and trace them on construction paper in the color of your choice. You’ll still need four bats, so make sure to cut out four! We chose to keep our spooky little friends a classic black.

Step 2

DIY Halloween 2018-4

DIY Halloween 2018-5

Now you have your four bats! Time to attach them. Take the top of a spring, and bend the first coil up vertically. This will give us a surface to glue our little bats to. Bend the tops of both springs.

Step 3

DIY Halloween 2018-6

Adhere your bats to the springs with hot glue, a front and back to each spring. Now you have two boing-y bats!

Step 4

DIY Halloween 2018-10

DIY Halloween 2018-11

Twist the bottoms of the springs over the headband to attach them. Our springs were tight enough to stand up on their own after they were twisted once or twice, but if they need a little more support, you can give them a little tap of hot glue. Voila! A beautifully batty accessory for Halloween!
