Looking for an easy and inexpensive DIY Halloween wreath that’s sure to add a spooky touch to your front door? I used 2 wire frames from the dollar store, a skein of black yarn, a skein of fuzzy black yarn, a package of googly eyes, 2 scary eyeball flowers and some orange ribbon to make these fun wreaths for $20.
Finished spooky eyeball Halloween wreath!
I tied black yarn onto wire frame and wove the yarn snugly around the frame.
I kept pushing the yarn tight so it laid neatly and once completely covered, I tied the loose end to other yarn on the back side of the wreath so it wouldn’t unravel.
I wrapped the fuzzy yarn around the solid black yarn, but more loosely. It didn’t need to cover every inch, it just needed to make it look “hairy.” (affiliate link) This
is the yarn I used.
First, I cut the leaves off of the main stem of the eyeball flowers. Then cut the main stem short enough to just poke through the frame. I used needle-nosed pliers to do all the cutting.
I hot glued the flower to the bottom of the wreath.
Then I hot glued the leaves to the underside of the flower.
Next I hot glued the eyes all over the rest of the wreath. I glued some in pairs and others as singles. (affiliate link) Here
is the package of eyes I used.
All of the eyes glued on. (I even added some to the black leaves to make them stand out a little bit better!)
Finally to make the hangers, I cut 2 pieces of ribbon the same length and tied them onto each wreath.
Here is the finished orange one. This is just a quick synopsis of the steps I did.

This really was an easy project and I really like how they turned out – spooky, but not too spooky! 🙂
