Creep the neighbors out with my Halloween Eyeball Wreath. My simplest Halloween prop DIY yet! Add fun eyeballs for Halloween to a cool charred wood wreath. For more spooky DIY’s see my Halloween page.
It’s finally fall! Yay! For me, fall means time to put out the pumpkins and start decorating for my favorite holiday, Halloween. I love making unique items to scare the neighbors.
To do that I take store made Halloween props and kick them up a notch. I have two fun but spooky projects to show you today.
One is a super easy Eyeball Wreath and a Creepy Pumpkin Man with crazy cool vine arms & legs! For you non-scary Halloween lovers, both of these projects fall into the low not too scary category.
For this post, I am partnering up with my friends at Wayfair to show you how to put together some of the spookiest decorations to haunt your home this year. My first project is a super creepy eyeball wreath.
I was really drawn to the Floor 9 Charred 15-inch Wood Wreath from Wayfair. It’s black burnt driftwood look is perfect for Halloween.
I combined some realistic paper mache eyeballs to the base of some black flowers and added them to the all around the wreath. With a little tweak here and there I have a one of a kind creepy eyeball wreath to put on my door for the big day.
To add to the fun, I fell in love with the Plow & Hearth Pumpkin Vine Arms & Legs set. You can give your pumpkin a whole new dimension with these babies.
I then created a fun Jack O’lantern face that you can download and use for your own Halloween pumpkins. It’s perfect for those of you who are not into carving a pumpkin this year. Let’s get started!
How to Make an Eyeball Wreath
- Floor 9 Charred 15-inch Wood Wreath
- Eyeball Garland or Single Halloween Eyeball Decorations
- Halloween Black Rose Floral Bunch
- Black & White Ribbon or other Ribbon of Your Choice
- Hot Glue & Gun
Remove the ribbon hanger from the manufacturer and replaced it with a black & white ribbon. Just loop the ribbon around the wreath and use hot glue to glue it together. Make a simple bow and glue it to the top of the ribbon.
Pull the flowers off of the stems of the Halloween floral bush. Take the flower apart in layers. I used two big layers for the large eyeballs and the small layers in the center of the flowers for the small eyeballs.
Glue the black flower layers to the eyeball. Place them on the wreath and glue them evenly around the wreath!
Hang the wreath and enjoy! Super simple and so creepy!
Now onto the next super fun project!
How to Make a Pumpkin Man with Printable Jack O’lantern Face
- Plow & Hearth Vine Arms & Legs
- Real or Faux Pumpkin
- Printable PDF Jack O Lantern Face PDF
- Decoupage Adhesive or White Inkjet Printable Sticker Paper
Download the face image above. You can print the face on inkjet adhesive paper, cut it out with scissors and stick the face on the pumpkin.
If you do not have sticker sheets, you could add the face to the pumpkin using decoupage glue. Feel free to just carve the pumpkin too.
The pumpkin face options are endless. They will all look equally as creepy with these fun arms and legs.
Place the vine arms and legs into your pumpkin in various places as per manufactured directions. Bend and pose arms and legs to add character and that’s it! How freaky is that pumpkin hand! Yikes!
I just love how these two projects came out. The eyeball wreath is sure to scare the kiddos this Halloween but that pumpkin man is the for sure show stopper.
