I spy a 30-minute, Tie-Dye, Wiggle Eye Halloween Wreath (and I have the Deco Mesh winners)

What’s not to like about this DIY Halloween Wreath – it’s fast, it’s fun and a lot of the materials are from a dollar store. I used one of my go-to supplies on this wreath – a craft bandana. When you just need a little fabric, craft bandanas are a great way to go, and they’re inexpensive, too. The stuffed raven, wiggle eyes and silk flowers are from the dollar store. If you’ve been too busy for Halloween crafts this year, I hope you can squeeze this Tie-Dye, Wiggle Eye Halloween Wreath into your schedule.

Yep, you can make this wreath in 30 minutes. And, a  lot of the supplies are from a dollar store. Score!

I spy a Tie-Dye Wiggle Wye Wreath that can be made in 30 minutes.

To make a Tie-Dye Wiggle Eye Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” x 2” wreath
  • Orange, tie-dye print craft bandana (or, ¼ yd. fabric)
  • Three silk gerbera daisies, two black and one orange & yellow
  • Wiggle eyes, four 1” and two ½”
  • Stuffed raven
  • Spider webbing
  • Low-temp glue gun
  • Tools needed: Scissors; iron; rotary cutter & cutting matt (optional); straight pins; wire knippers

To make a Tie-Dye Wiggle Eye Wreath:

1. Press bandana, removing wrinkles. With scissors or rotary cutter, cut hemmed edge off all four sides. Cut bandana into 1-1/4” wide strips. You will need approximately 12 strips (the final number may vary depending on high tightly you wrap the wreath).

2. Pin ends of one fabric strip onto the back of the wreath, and wrap the strip around the wreath; pin other end of strip to the back of the wreath. Repeat, pinning and wrapping fabric strips around the wreath, until wreath is covered.

3. Cut stems from gerbera daisies. Glue daisies to the front of the wreath between 3:00 and 6:00 positions.

Nothing like a few wiggle eyes to add personality to your Halloween Wreath. This is a cute one on CraftsnCoffee.com.

The wiggle eyes add a pop of personality.

4. Carefully remove legs from raven. Glue raven to the top of wreath around the 11:00 position.

5. Glue two, 1” wiggle eyes between 10:00 and 11:00 on the front of the wreath.

6. Glue 1” wiggle eyes to the centers of the black gerbera daisies and two, ½” wiggle eyes to the orange & yellow gerbera daisy.

7. Carefully spread apart a small portion of spider webbing and stretch across the back of the wreath. Pin and glue in place.

8. Tie another strip of bandana through the top of the wreath for a hanger.

    Congratulations to the winner’s! My BCB {Best Crafting Buddy} every year makes me something for Halloween. This year it is a wreath. All done with double sided paper that she curled. Pinned on a Styrofoam wreath.

  5. The wreath is so cute and I’m a big fan of Wiggle Eyes! Although I have a bunch of eyes, where can I purchase the Ravens? They seem to be in craft and card magazines but not the info to purchase.
    Thank you so much, Kathryn
