Googly Eyes Halloween Wreath

Googly Eyes Halloween Wreath

I’m in love with this fun Halloween wreath made with ping pong balls and googly eyes. Googly eyes are one of my all-time favorite crafting supplies, especially for Halloween. Our googly eyes halloween wreath makes everybody smile, especially our kids. Here is how to make one of your own:

Supplies needed:

18 inch straw wreath form

White ribbon or fabric to wrap wreath form

Wire

Practice Ping Pong Balls, Pack of 144 balls - two orders.

I used around 250 ping pong balls and have some left over for future crafts.

Googly Eyes – Two packages of 94 count

Hot glue and hot glue gun

Step One: Tightly wrap straw wreath in ribbon or fabric, hot glueing the ends down. Use wire wrapped around wreath and twisted in the back to create a wreath hanger.

Step Two: Hot glue ping pong balls onto wreath. I added mine randomly until I felt it looked full and even. I just kept filling and stepping back to check my progress.

Step Three: Hot glue googly eyes to ping pong balls. Use a hair dryer to melt any hot glue strings left behind.

  4. How adorable- my kids would love that.

  5. This is really clever! Tell me though, where would one find ping pong balls? lol

  6. I love it! How big are the googly eyes you used?

    And I found eBay much cheaper than Amazon for sourcing ping pong balls!

  7. So cute and clever! I might have to do this!

  8. This is so cool! Looks like they’re looking right at you!

  11. Love this idea! Very creative. Thanks for sharing:)

  12. I made this today, it looks awesome! Instead of the black and white eyes I actually bought colored ones so it looks a little more vibrant. I love it though!!

  13. I have absolutely no idea how I found your blog but I am so glad that I did. I love this wreath. Halloween is my favorite decorating holiday. I can’t wait to see the rest of your decor.

  14. I made it! It only took one evening and it looks great. I think my glue gun is hotter than average and the ping pong balls often gave a little pop when I put them on the wreath (I used a foam pool noodle for that) but other than surprising me, did no damage and held their shape. Here’s a picture of mine: http://pinterest.com/pin/218354281904742082/

  15. What would be cooler is if you could find glow in the dark ping pong balls!

  16. That’s scary but I think it’s good idea to use it.

  17. Hey, there! Just wanted to tell you that we made a version of this wreath, but with ping pong ball-sized eyeballs from Party City. I blogged about it and another wreath I made, and linked this article from it. In case you want to check out how ours turned out, here is is: http://jenniferbussey.wordpress.com/2012/10/23/creepy-crafting-mwa-ha-ha-ha/
    Thanks for the great idea! We had so much fun! After I got my daughter to stop wearing it as an eyeball crown. Shiver…

    This is adorable!! I think I’m going to give this Halloween except I want to try it with glow in the dark ping pong balls!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea!!!

  19. I came across this on Pinterest and LOVE it!! I featured it over on my blog with my “Fabulous Friday Finds” can’t wait to make one of my own!!

  20. I love your wreath so very much. Too fun!

  21. so super cute!! Pinned : )

    How did you store it when Halloween was over? Did you have troubles with the ping pong balls falling off? I made this adorable wreath for Christmas using ornaments and half of them fell off in storage :(

    • I stored mine in my garage, and I haven’t had a problem. It gets very hot in our garage in the summer too. I think the ping pong balls are more porous than the ornaments and the hot glue holds them together better.

      Good luck!

  23. Too funny! I bet if you put the wreath on the door the eyeballs dance when you swing it open. :)
