1. Paint Chair
Start with an old, salvaged chair. Spray it with black spray paint. Allow to dry.
2. Prep Florals
Wrap black twig garland around the top of the chair and wind down on one side. Gather all of the floral supplies. Use a permanent marker to make the stems of the flowers black.
3. Attach Grass and Garland to Chair
Tape the garland to the back of the chair and allow the twig portion to hang down. Do this to the back and underneath the chair. Twist a pipe cleaner at the base of the pampas grass stems to hold them together. Then twist this to the top of the chair on one side. Also, secure the stems at the bottom of the chair so it won’t lean.
4. Attach the Florals
The grass has wires in it to hold it into place. Fold it out to make it wide on each side. Tuck the black calla lilies into the pipe cleaners and fold them to the front and sides. Add the daisies to the top in several places. The eucalyptus stems get installed next. (Tip: Twist two eucalyptus stems together to get a longer one.) Insert the baby’s breath into the top as a final touch.
5. Continue Adding Florals to the Top and Sides
Add pipe cleaners loosely going down the chair to hold more floral. Add daisies, lilies and eucalyptus to the side of the chair underneath the large floral arrangement. Finish the look on the side with black feathers.
6. Attach Flowers and Feathers to the Base
Use this same technique to add floral to the base of the chair on the opposite corner. Use the feathers to add some height to the arrangement.
Add a creepy skull to complete the look.
