eyeball wreath

i finished this tonight.

i have three more i'm half done, but they're all different than this one.

i bought the wreath at micheals about a year and a half ago and never got around to spraypainting it, and i finally did a few days ago.

then i took all the eyeballs and drilled two holes in each one (they're like pingpong balls with the eyes painted on) and threaded them all onto embroidery floss with a few black pony beads between them. i wrapped the eyeball garland around, took a purple and a black mardi gras necklace and cut them open and wrapped them too. then i laid out all the gummy bats and spiders, which i'd drilled holes in earlier (i love my drill press!). i took a super long piece of black embroidery floss and sewed it all together to keep everything in place, and then i added all the bright colourful rings - i just threaded them onto pieces of the wreath to keep them in place.

i am SOOO GLAD to finally finish something! i have all these projects i'm half done or close to being done, and FINALLY, something is finished. i'm satisfied.

This is wonderful - I love the eyeballs. I wish I had a Michael's nearby to go and pick some fun ingredients up.

you really don't need a michaels - the only thing i bought there was the wreath itself, and you can get them at other stores, or you could make the wreath form the way i did for the other wreaths, just wrapping garland around a simple wood frame. everything else was from the dollar store! (including the eyeballs!)
