Create a fun and spooky Eyeball Wreath for your DIY Halloween decor! Made with inexpensive products and a lot of hot glue, it’s an easy Halloween Wreath your trick or treaters will love!
A fun DIY Halloween Eyeball Wreath that turned out cuter than I ever hoped!
I first made this back in 2015 when I needed a fun weekend of distraction which meant making Halloween decor and baking fall treats!! On the docket for that weekend was the creepy crawly Spider Wreath I made for my mom’s Halloween door and this playful Eyeball Wreath for our own decorations! It doesn’t get much better than eating Pumpkin Mummy Truffles and burning your fingers with hot glue… haha!
When I began tackling this eyeball wreath, I was a little nervous that this wouldn’t come out. I was using such simple craft products to make this wreath with just a loose vision, but I really love it! It feels playful enough for the littles who like to shake and poke the googly eyes and a creepy enough in the dark for the older kids.

MATERIALS TO MAKE THIS EYEBALL WREATH
- 288 Ping Pong Balls (buy 3 packs for 14″ wreath)
- Wiggle Googly Eyes
- 10″ Foam Wreath or 14″ Foam Wreath
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Black ribbon or other hanging device.
- Adjustable Over the Door Wreath Hanger
NOTE 1: It might seem a little weird to you but the ping pong balls are listed as Beer Pong Balls. They were the best price … even though they are the same thing!
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN DIY EYEBALL WREATH FOR HALLOWEEN:
- Warm up your hot glue.
- Start at one spot on your wreath and start gluing on the ping pong balls. Create a single layer of ping pong balls on the wreath all the way around. I do this while lying my wreath form flat on the table to make sure it’s laying flat and won’t stick out from the wall or door weird.
- Once your first layer is done, start building up. Filling in empty spots and making visual interest. You want to look at it from straight on and from the sides – whichever direction your wreath might be seen.
- When done, hot glue your googly wiggle eyes to any ping pong ball you see. I like to squeeze them into lower balls as well to add great dimension.
- Glue and pin ribbon to the back for hanging.
HOW LONG DID THIS HALLOWEEN WREATH TAKE?
I will be honest – this was not the fastest wreath I have ever made. It took 2-3 hours to make the eyeball wreath. However, none of that work was hard or complicated. It just took time to add hot glue to each ping pong ball and each googly eye and then attach to the foam wreath form. So I suggest munching on yummy fall dessert, watching a Halloween movie, and craft away!
