Another Sunday, another Halloween inspired DIY! This centrepiece is a quick and simple project that's completely customisable. Best of all, it's an upcycle project so it's perfect for those trying to host a Halloween party on a tight budget!

To create a centrepiece like this one you'll need: a selection of glass jars, plastic spiders/skulls/eyeballs or similar, water, food colouring, black and/or lace fabrics... spooky chocolate treats are also optional!

For my centrepiece I draped a black faux velvet style fabric over the table surface and hung a black lace fabric to create a backdrop. I filled three of the jars with water and used food colouring to tint them, finishing off by adding plastic spiders and a small plastic skull. I decided to fill the final jar with eyeballs and ended up with a mixture of plastic and chocolate ones!

Both the skull and plastic eyeballs were purchased from Home Bargains as part of sets costing under £1 each. The plastic spiders were part of a 72 piece set (!) I picked up from Pound World and the large chocolate eyeballs were £1 for 5 at Tesco.

Tip! There are tons of free label printables out there from apothecary jars to potions, why not use these to add an extra something to your centrepiece?

As always I'd love to hear from you if you try out this or any other project from my DIY Archives - if you liked this project don't forget to Pin it!
