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 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!
Animal Eyes Halloween Wreath Materials:
- 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)
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.Google+
