Halloween Wreath

I know I have been missing in action for a while... long story short, A LOT of failed project that have taken a long time and in turn it's taken me a long time to recover! But I'm back and do I have the cutest Halloween wreath EVER?! Inspired by this, I made THIS!


So here is what you need: a $1 wreath, $1 Happy Halloween foam sign, $1 ball of yarn, some monster green "Fun Fur" (which is on sale at Joannes starting tomorrow!), and googly eyes.

First start wrapping the wreath with your yarn. You don't have to be too careful like I was to make it perfect, because you won't be able to see imperfections!
Tip: Place the wreath between your knees and use both hands to wrap, it's WAY faster!

Then once you wrapped the wreath completely grab your "Fun Fur" and start wrapping in a random order. I was spacing my wraps from 1/2 inch to 2 inches apart. Then I'd switch the angles, until I liked the manginess of my monster wreath.

Then I hot glued my googly eyes on at random. Then to hang it I just took the ribbon that was on the Happy Halloween sign, fed it through the middle and hung! Pretty simple and super cute!
