Wreath Challenge #2 — Halloween Wreath using EYES!!

Remember from yesterday, I started wreath week here on the CCC!!  So go check out my Rummikub wreath if you missed it!!  Now for wreath #2 made out of something unexpected…okay downright weird…  :)  Today’s wreath is a Halloween wreath made out of EYES!!  Yep eyes!!  BOO!

Halloween Wreath made with Eyes
 
So are you ready to make your own eye wreath to scare the trick-or-treaters??  I used a styrofoam circle
painted in black and lots of googly eyes!  You can pick those up at any craft store or dollar tree cheap!
 
 
 
I hot glued on my eyes.  This was one wreath I was not worried about glue strings.  The strings add to the spooky effect cause they look like spider webs…
 
 
I then added chip board letters to spell “BOO”! 
 
 
Now my circle was small — about 6 inches in diameter.  So I needed something else to make it pop off the door.  I wrapped a picture frame in torn white fabric scraps then grabbed my cheesecloth 
 
 
Cut a piece of cheese cloth to fit around your frame with some extra.  Stretch it around your fram and use hot glue in the back to secure…
 
 
I took my scissors and poked holes in the cheese cloth.  Pull your scissors when you poke through for a larger, more elongated hole.  Just poke in other areas.  Just get it to be spooooky… 
 
 
I then used a black ribbon to secure my little wreath in the center of the frame… 
 
 
And my googly eyed wreath stands out against the spooky white background!! 
 
 
Cheese cloth makes an excellent addition to your Halloween decor if you have not already tried it.  It makes things extra spooky and you might even have some in your kitchen supplies!

This may be my favorite wreath I have ever made…ever!!
