Welcome to the second tutorial for my Zombie Princess Party! See the first tutorial — zombie soda bottles — here. Today, I’ll show you how to make Princess Creepy Teeth, our zombie party centerpiece. It’s really easy, and you need no crafting skills.

How to create a Zombie Princess Party Skull Centerpiece by The Party Teacher

Supplies

  • Plastic skull. Mine is from WalMart and cost $3, but I’ve also seen similar skulls at Dollar Tree.
  • Styrofoam circle, 3″ diameter x 2″ high
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Foam brush
  • Black silk roses
  • Wire cutters
  • Black scrapbooking paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tiara from the dollar store
  • Gold acrylic paint for tiara (optional)

Instructions

1 – Place your styrofoam circle on black scrapbooking paper and trace a circle just a hair bigger than your styrofoam. Cut this out.

2 – Glue the paper circle to the styrofoam. I used Aleene’s Thick Tacky Glue, but I think any white glue would work. If your styrofoam circle is slanted like mine was, attach the paper to the narrow end.

3 – Paint the side of the styrofoam with your black paint. Just dilute the paint with a little water and dab it on with a foam brush.

4 – Trim your black silk roses so the stem is about 1.5″ long.

5 – I’ve shown you how to insert the roses on styrofoam that hasn’t been painted because this black-on-black doesn’t show up well in photos.

Here you can see how I inserted the roses very close together. You’ll make two rows. Go all the way around the top of the foam, making a circle of roses.

6 – Flip over the foam, and add a second row of roses. I tried to offset the second row from the first to help eliminate gaps.

Here is the bottom of the completed circle.

Now you just plop your skull on top of the black paper-covered side of the foam circle.

Add your tiara, and she’s complete. (My tiara was silver, and I painted it gold, but do whatever you prefer.)

To elevate the centerpiece, I put our centerpiece on a spray painted gold tray, and put the tray on a black candle stand.
