Halloween home décor can be sophisticated, classy and inexpensive all while still giving a nod to the classic pumpkin orange and black colors.  Today I’m sharing how to make these sleek black Halloween vases that won’t break the bank.

Items needed:

  • Americana Decor Outdoor Living 8oz - Iron Gate
  • Paint Brush
  • Miter saw
  • Wood glue
  • Finish nailer
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Plastic vase
  • Plastic wine glass
  • E6000 adhesive
  • Floral foam
  • Faux florals


I created this architectural shape with easy to find plastic party goods and scrap wood then painted everything in DecoArt Americana Décor Outdoor Living iron black acrylic paint.  It goes on super smooth on both plastic and wood and the eggshell finish is beautiful.

I love how the black paint creates an ominous, spooky vibe versus the delicate, shapely figure of the vase.  Vases can be pricey, especially an urn style planter, so why not make your own version and you can paint it to match your décor.

Create a wood base using scrap pieces.  Use your plastic wine glass and vase to determine the best size.

I opted for more earthly tones and natural florals mixed with a few orange leaves and white pumpkins.  This Halloween home décor can be made now and will take you through all the Fall holidays with ease.
