DIY Paper Pomanders for an Edgar Allan Poe Theme Halloween Party


Are you the one hosting this year’s Halloween dinner party for your friends and family but are short on ideas for your Halloween table decor? Don’t fret, because Smarty's Disposable Plasticware and fantastic DIY projects have got you covered! Smarty Had A Party arrange a spooktacular Halloween tablescape that is stylish and ghoulishly delightful to help you elevate your Halloween decorating game to the next level!


DIY paper pomanders are so popular and super simple to create yourself! For an Edgar Allan Poe theme Halloween Party, it's all about the quotes and writing, so what better way to decorate than with book pages? Just take pages from any old book you can find. The more yellowed the pages are, the more festive your Halloween poms will be!


What you need:

  • A book to pull old looking pages from (or any paper of your choice)
  • A cup to trace around that's about 2.5 inches in diameter
  • Styrofoam balls
  • Hot glue gun
  • A pen
  • Scissors
Supplies to make DIY paper poms


Step 1: Trace circles on the pages around the cup and cut them out.

    Step 2: Hot glue the center of each paper circle to the styrofoam ball one by one and continue until the ball is covered.

      Step 3: Place paper pomanders on candlestick holders or your table as part of your centerpiece. You could also add a string to your paper poms and hang them over your table.
