How to Make a Creepy Flower  for Halloween

[Download Printable Project Sheet]
1. Using a pencil, lightly draw a circle about 3/4″ in diameter on the side opposite brand markings on a ping pong ball. This is the outline of the eye’s pupil.

Along the inside edge of the pupil circle, draw a small 1/4″ diameter circle, which outlines the reflection in the eye. To create the iris edge, draw a circle that’s concentric to the pupil, about 1/4″ along the outside edge of the pupil. The larger circle should be approximately 1 1/4″ in diameter. (See Figure 1 below.)

2. With one of your colored markers, draw short lines from the smaller circle to the larger circle to create the iris of the eyeball, like Figure 2 below.

3. Next, with your black marker, color in the pupil, leaving the small reflection area untouched. Now, your ping pong eyeball should look like Figure 3. Set aside.

4. Stack five cupcake liners together. Holding the liners together, use your scissors to make cuts all along the from the outside edge along the side to the bottom of the liners. The cuts should be about 1/4″ apart. Take a needle and poke a small hole through the bottom center of the cupcake liners. Set aside.Prep the cupcake liners

5. Bend the end of a chenille stem to create a “T”, then hot glue the back of the ping pong eyeball to the “T”. (See diagram.)guide for folding chenille stem for creepy flower6. Through the hole in the base of the cupcake liners, thread all 5 liners onto the opposite end of the chenille stem. Apply some hot glue to the inner part of the eyeball and pull one liner up and around the eye. Hold for a few seconds until the glue takes hold. Repeat for each of the remaining four liners. (See the video below for a similar process, minus the creepy eyeball. 😉 )

7. Thread the chenille stem through a plastic straw to give the stem strength.

8. Optional: Hot glue styrofoam to the base of a small witch’s cauldron treat bucket, then insert your creepy flower stem to stand straight up.
