The below six-minute clip teaches you how to create a stunning Halloween skull arrangement featuring deep red florals, greenery, and spooky décor in jet black urns ideal for a centerpiece or to frame your entrance just in time for trick-or-treaters. 

For a similar look with even more of a creepy Halloween vibe, watch the tutorial below for a skull-and-bones floral arrangement perfect for your front porch or entryway. Watch how blending Spanish moss, plum branches, tiger wood, red roses, and inexpensive Halloween décor can create a scary, yet elegant, floral design.

Another great décor piece for a Halloween is a tombstone arrangement – it's easy to make and will instantly add the spooky holiday spirit to your space! In the video, Eddie also shares a great trick for easily creating a "spider web" look using a technique that incorporates just Styrofoam and a hot glue gun.
