Something about Halloween puts my brain into over drive. Today I stopped by Hobby Lobby to pick up some last minute things for the wedding and I happened to walk by the fake flowers and got inspired to throw together a quick Halloween flower arrangement.
The only thing I needed to buy was 3 fake gerber daisys, grand total was less that $2. The other supplies were: paint (red and brown), paint brush, white glue, a hair tie, a vase and red food coloring.
I started by painting the centers red (with a little brown), it’s a subtle change but it makes a big difference. Clip the ends off the flowers so they sit well in your vase, secure them together with a hair tie. Drip the red paint in the centers on the flowers, add enough that the paint over flows and dribbles down the flower.
Fill the vase with water and the red food coloring to get a nice deep red. Pop in the flowers and you have a simple little spooky bouquet.
I went with three bloody flowers but I think a bouquet with only one bleeding flower would be nice, it also means you only need to sacrifice one flower! A bouquet of red flowers with a single bleeding white would also be nice.
And who says you need a full boquet? Any self-respecting
non-sparkling vampire would love a bloody corsage!
