Wrap some ribbon or washi tape around mini pumpkins, drop in a bowl or clear vase, and you've got a Halloween centerpiece.

A Little Black Magic Let's cut to the chase: These vases do require a knife, but the celestial designs come courtesy of a spoon — not torturous slicing and dicing. Cut off the top of the pumpkin, and remove the innards. Spray-paint the rind a matte black and let dry. Use a spoon handle to scratch away paint to create stars, moons, and spirals. Add water and blooms.
For this fast centerpiece, coil flexible craft-store wire vines around gourd stems, then weave in a faux garland.
