Every time we ventured into Michael's, Loreli would find these googly eyes and ask if we could get them. I held off for awhile, but finally caved. Then I was left wondering how to utilize these really cute, colorful googly eyes.
Here's what I used:
- Straw wreath (still wrapped in plastic)
- Black worsted weight yarn
- Loops & Threads Pom Pom yarn
- Martha Stewart Tinsel yarn in Orange
- Multi-colored googly eyes
- Hot Glue Gun
Start of by wrapping your entire wreath with the black yarn. Some people get picky about doing one even layer, but since I knew that I would be putting a textured yarn on top of that first layer, I wasn't too concerned about it.
Next twist the tinsel yarn and pom pom yarn together, making one strand. I criss-crossed the yarn to create blank spaces big enough to fit the googly eyes.
Last, glue the googly eyes to the wreath with the hot glue gun. This is a really quick and easy project!
What plans do you have for Halloween this year?
