Beware of the Bam-BOO - Halloween Centerpiece

Halloween is absolutely one of my FAVORITE holidays and to celebrate I pulled together the creative minds of some of my talented blogging friends to bring you over 110 fabulous Halloween ideas.
From costumes to parties, crafts and home decor, recipes and free printables, we have so many fun ideas to share. 

I am scaring up a spooky centerpiece for Halloween...

 A gang of ghosts has invaded my plants...
turning them into bamBOO...

You can easily bamBOOzle some too...

You will need:
bamboo shoots 
(I got mine at Ikea but Trader Joe's usually has them or your local nursery)
cheese cloth
fishing line
small pom poms
large needle
fine point black sharpie

Make a Casper-esq face on the pom pom with your Sharpie...

cover face with square piece of cheese cloth
(mine was approx 3 1/2" square)

Cut a piece of fishing line, 
thread it through your needle and make a knot at the end of the line.
Pierce needle through bottom of pom pom and poke through the top, 
pull until knot is at bottom of pom pom.

If necessary, embellish eyes and mouth so it can be seen through cloth.

Tie onto your bamboo and wait for the BOO-gyman on Halloween.

But the fun ideas don't stop here.
