"An adorable and easy Halloween centerpiece using a pre-decorated styrofoam skull and succulents! Its so simple to make and lasts the entire month of October! I usually put out my Halloween decor items throughout the month of October. Ive had this arrangement sitting on a cake stand in our kitchen and I love how festive and charming it is!"

Time to CompleteUnder an hour

Primary TechniqueFlorals/Wreaths



Materials List

  • 1 pre-decorated styrofoam skeleton head
  • succulents
  • duct tape
  • knife
  • planting dirt
  • handful of moss


  1. Cut a hole in the top of the styrofoam skeleton in the shape of a square.

  2. Use that piece (that you just removed) to fit into the bottom of the skeleton if there is an opening. You might need to cut it to adjust.

  3. Fill the bottom with a handful of moss, make it come out of the eyes and nose.

  4. Use duct tape to tape around the edges of the hole, so the styrofoam doesnt get too wet when watering the plants.

  5. Add in the dirt and plants.

  6. Sprinkle with water every few days and enjoy!
