Introduction

This googly-eyed wreath is the perfect way to keep an eye out for trick-or-treaters on Halloween. With glow-in-the-dark accents, it will look great day or night.

DIY Homemade Halloween wreath

Supplies

To make this wreath you'll need a 35cm (14-inch) foam wreath, a spool of orange tulle, a pair of scissors, straight pins, 150 ping pong balls, a pink or red permanent marker, glow-in-the-dark paint, a foam paint brush, 150 googly eyes in assorted sizes, 50+ glue sticks and a glue gun.

DIY Homemade Halloween wreath

Prep the wreath

Wrap the foam wreath with two layers of orange tulle. Wrapping the foam will help the glue stick and give your wreath a festive base colour. Snip the tulle off the spool when the wreath is completely wrapped. Use straight pins to secure the tulle to the foam wreath.

Make the eyes

With a red or pink permanent marker, draw veins that start at one side of the ball and spider out all over the surface. Leave one small area open. Repeat this on about half of your ping pong balls. Leave the second half plain white.

Make the eyes glow

Use the foam paintbrush to apply an even coat of the glow-in-the-dark paint onto the “bloodshot” eyes.

Place a dab of glue in the center of a bloodshot eyeball or anywhere on the plain white balls. Repeat to apply googly eyes to each eyeball.
