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 with googly eyes! Yep eyes! BOO! So are you ready to make your own eye wreath to scare the trick-or-treaters? Read on to find out how!
Supplies to make a Halloween wreath with eyes:
- styrofoam circle
- black paint
- lots of googly eyes (You can pick those up at any craft store or dollar tree cheap)
- hot glue and glue gun
- chipboard letters
How to Make a Halloween Wreath with Googly Eyes
Paint the styrofoam ring black. Then hot glue on the 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 chipboard 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 cheesecloth to fit around your frame with some extra. Stretch it around your frame and use hot glue in the back to secure.
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!!
Cheesecloth 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!!
