This wreath from Crafty Sisters


I found a ridiculously awful ivy wreath on clearance at IKEA last week for $2.99. I sprayed it with black spray paint and then wrapped it with a black feather boa from the party supply store.

I used dollar store ping pong balls (9 for a buck!) for the eyeballs, just like in the original.


I used foam stencil dauber thingy (I’m sure that you now know EXACTLY what I’m talking about on account of my brilliant use of the English language) to make the irises. I did a layer of green craft paint first and then a layer of Extreme Glitter. You can’t really tell, so I’m not sure that I’d go that route again. I used the handle dipped in black craft paint for the pupils. And then I hot glued them in place.

    Cool! I think I would take a thin read brush and some red paint to make so gross looking veins ;-)
