Need a fun, minimal wreath for Halloween? Then this Animal Eyes Halloween Wreath is just for you!
From a distance your guest will just assume you have a yellow wreath hanging on your door. It won’t be until they get closer that they’ll realize it’s a wreath made entirely from animal eyes.
This is a pretty straightforward and easy Halloween wreath project. Punching the eyes into the Styrofoam is a bit time consuming but I think the final product really comes together nicely. I didn’t have to use any adhesive to keep the eyes in place. You can always add some glue to the base before sticking in the eyes if you find it necessary. The animal eyes can become a bit pricey with the amount needed for this project, so keep an eye out (hah, pun intended!) for ConsumerCrafts.com coupons and deals!
Supplies needed to make your own Eyes Halloween Wreath:
- Various Sizes of Yellow Animal Eyes (I used: 24 mm, 20 mm, 18 mm, 12 mm, 9 mm)
- Black Crepe Paper Streamer Roll
- White Styrofoam Wreath (use a smaller one if you have less eyes)
- Black Satin Ribbon 2.5 inches wide (optional)
Step 1. Begin by wrapping the entire wreath in black crepe paper. Tape down end on the back of the wreath once completely covered.
Step 3. You’ll want to space each size out randomly but evenly, eventually making clumps of eyes. If you’re on a budget or only have a few packages of eyes, you can end here. I really like the way the wreath looks at this stage. Kinda reminds me of boils…in a good way. 😀
Step 4. If you have more supplies available, continue to add eyes until the majority of the black space is filled. Are you starting to get that feeling that someone is watching you?!
