DIY Lantern:

You will need-

  • Mason jar
  • Fake leaves
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fake or real candles


  1. Pick out leaves you’d like on your lantern.
  2. Lay them out on the jar before you glue them to get a placement idea.
  3. Add hot glue to leaves. Be careful! It could easily get very messy and burn you.
  4. Place the leaves where you’d like and let dry.
  5. Place your candle inside and you’re done!


DIY Eyeball Flowers:

You will need-

  • Hot glue gun
  • Paint brushes
  • Black and white paint with an eyeball color of your choice (mine was blue)
  • Wooden spheres
  • Fake flowers, roses are ideal


  1. Paint the wooden spheres white and let dry.
  2. Add a large circle of the eyeball color and let dry.
  3. Add a smaller black circle and once that’s dry, add a white dot for a realistic highlight.
  4. Once your eyeball is dry, hot glue it into the center of your rose. Be careful!
  5. Place your eyeball flowers into a vase and you’re done!


DIY Pumpkin Centerpiece:

You will need-

  • Styrofoam pumpkin
  • Orange paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fake fall flowers
  • Scissors/knife


  1. Paint your styrofoam pumpkin orange and let dry.
  2. Cut the top off of the styrofoam pumpkin. This part is really difficult and messy, so be careful and keep a vaccuum nearby.
  3. Sand down the top of the styrofoam to get it semi-even and nicer to look at.
  4. Hot glue your fall flowers to the top and let dry and then you’re done!
