Spooky Eyeball Wreath
Eyeballs and a skull with bugging-out eyes.
Creepy and yet, somehow I think this spooky eyeball wreath is adorable.
Weird, I know.
It was fun to make though, sticking those eyeballs all over the wreath, finding spots to tuck the skeletal hands.
Let me show you how easy it was to make.
First, get over to the dollar store. I know! How many of my crafts start that way?
Grab a grapevine wreath and some ping pong balls.
I found the boa in the craft section of a superstore. I have seen small ones at the dollar store. Those would be fine too.
Spray paint your wreath black – just to blend it in with the feathers.
Then use a hot glue gun and dab on glue to start the wreath. Wrap it around the wreath until you are back at the starting point, and add another drop of glue to secure it.
Open your ping pong balls, and add wiggle eyes to the balls using hot glue.
I opted for my largest-sized wiggle eyes, to make them more like an eyeball shape.
You need about 16 eyeballs for the wreath.
Glue the eyeballs onto the wreath somewhat randomly, but not too much.
I found these hands in a bag of parts at Walmart last year. I glued them on holding the eyeballs just to be creepy.
Then I cut out one of the skulls from our printable skull page, and placed it on the wreath.
You can find our cool skull printable (and all of our other Halloween 2014 Printables) here:

I tucked in some ribbons that matched and made bows, that would be tucked under the skull.
Then I added the skull which I printed on nice, thick cardstock.
And, I hot glued two more wiggle eyes on him.
I have him on my new wreath hanger that I made. Wreath Hanger – In case you missed it.
