Halloween Glass Vases 

Glass block vases become one-of-a-kind Halloween centerpieces with die cuts and spooky scrapbook paper (available at crafts stores). To make, use spray adhesive to attach the papers; (spray the back of the paper, not the glass, to avoid streaks). Place sand and tapered candles inside the vase for a haunting glow. 
Editor's Tip: Use clear plastic blocks in lieu of glass vases. Be sure to nix the candles or opt for battery-powered versions.

Black and Orange Halloween Candles 

Wrap decorative scrapbook paper around large orange and black candles to create this simple Halloween centerpiece. An orange table runner makes the black candle pop, overturned black bowls add height to the decoration, and black spiders and white Halloween candies add creepy-crawly fun at the base. 
Editor's Tip: Be sure to keep an eye on how fast your candles burn, and trim scrapbook paper accordingly.

Raven Urn Centerpiece 

You need only a few household items and a little nature to create this haunting-yet-simple Halloween centerpiece. Gather knotted, rustic sticks from your yard or neighborhood to place in a basic urn, and add bits of moss to get the fright just right. Use free clip art to trace and cut out ominous black ravens from construction paper -- the finishing touch for this Halloween centerpiece.

Candleholder Goblets Display 

Thrift-store glasses become centerpiece-ready with a coat of black spray paint. Choose textural goblets for the most detail, set them upside down to spray-paint, and tape a few to preserve the tops. Touch up any edges with a black permanent marker after the goblets dry. Note that after decorating the goblets they are meant for display only. 
Editor's Tips:
Use sand to raise your votives to desired height.
Place the goblets on a black tray or a mirror embellished with spray paint to make the centerpiece both cohesive and portable.

"Boo" Embroidery Hoop Centerpiece

Basic embroidery hoops set a spooky scene at your Halloween table. To make, stretch black costume fabric or lace through the painted hoops; trim extra fabric. Next, spray-paint planters for bases, then add enough florist's foam inside to secure a painted dowel through the middle. Finish with a square of black-and-white patterned paper atop the planters and a hauntingly fun message spelled out in painted wood letters. Hot glue can help secure the dowels and wood letters.

Ribbon Spool Stackers 

Colorful spools of ribbon display equally eye-catching desserts. Place scallop-edge die cuts (available at crafts stores or cut from a die-cutting tool) between the ribbon spools with a touch of adhesive to ensure stability. Top with a decadent treat for a sugary-sweet Halloween centerpiece. 
Editor's Tip: Arrange the spools in a cluster around an accent piece, such as a colorful vase, or in a straight line on a table runner to maximize creativity.

White Pumpkins on Black Stands

Pumpkins painted white and covered in glitter stand out when placed on stark black stands. Use double-sided tape or an adhesive spray to get just the right amount of shine for this glitzy Halloween centerpiece.

Recycled Halloween Centerpiece 

Scrapbook papers and floral accents are all it takes to "upcycle" yesterday's tin cans into a "green" Halloween centerpiece. Standard- and economy-size tin cans work well for this craft, although the more varied the sizes, the more intriguing the display. Wrap with scrapbook paper or add die-cut scenes or stickers as desired. 
Editor's Tip: Keep the cans for next year, or give them away to guests as simple mementos of a frightful night.

Ghost Book Pop-Ups

A stack of old books forms the stand in this spooky centerpiece. To make, cut two basic ghost shapes from pages in the middle of a book, leaving the bottoms attached to their pages. Hold up each ghost with a touch of tape. To complete, use a hole punch or marker to make eyes for this haunting centerpiece.

Chalked Skeleton Centerpiece

Spray-paint Halloween props with black chalkboard paint, then outline them with chalk for frightfully aged flair. Fill the cauldron with a decorative bottle, handpicked beverage, or a tasty Halloween treat.
