All eyes will be on your creepy-cool Halloween wreath. DIY a yarn-wrapped wreath featuring all-seeing eyeballs made from wood beads.
Create your own, snap a picture, and share using #ACMooreInspired.
1Glue two Styrofoam wreath bases together to create a thicker wreath. Wrap individual sections of the wreath with black and white yarn to create a stripe. Wrap the rest of the wreath in black securing each section with hot glue.
2To create eyeballs, paint the wooden beads white. Let dry. Paint on another coat if necessary. At the top of the knob, draw a small circle. Paint this circle in desired color of the eye. Let dry. Using black paint, paint an even smaller dot in the center. Let dry. Paint entire eyeball in Glossy Accents. Let dry.
3Using wire cutters, remove centers from flowers. Place a dot of hot glue to the center of the flower and glue in wooden eyeballs. Let dry.
4To create shriveled eyes, remove center from the berries that have centers. Using an X-Acto knife or scissors, remove excess residue to create a smooth surface. Paint circle in your desired eyeball color onto the top of berry. Let dry. Paint a smaller circle in the center using black paint. Let dry. Using a heat gun or blow dryer heat the berry until it begins to shrivel.
5Attach crow to the middle of the wreath. Use floral pins to secure crows foot to the Styrofoam. Hot glue crows feet to secure in place. Let dry. Assemble flowers onto the front of wreath using hot glue.
