My monster eye wreath is the perfect door decor for Halloween. Check out the original blog post here:

I love Halloween, but I don't own a lot of decorations to put up for this holiday. That's why I made this Monster Eye Wreath. It's very simple and inexpensive DIY. Check out how I made it below.


  • foam wreath (I used 12″)
  • 8 inch smooth foam half ball
  • 1/2 yard of “monster” fur material
  • hot glue + glue gun
  • one 8″ x 10″ piece of black felt
  • wire

Before adding the fur, add a bit of wire to make a loop for the wreath to hang from when it's done.

Place your wreath on the wrong side of the monster fur. Push the foam half ball into the center of the wreath on the right side of the monster fur. Fold the fur over each side of the wreath to make sure it covers all the wreath foam. Trim the fir to size.

Note: the fur is super messy. I suggest taking the fur outside, after cutting, and shaking. It helps.

Flip the wreath over and hot glue along the wreath and fur edge (see image above).

Pull the foam half ball out of the wreath and run a line of glue along it's edge. Carefully press the half ball back into the wreath and secure it to the fur.

Wrap the monster fur over to the back of the wreath and glue it down with your hot glue.

Cut a small circle out of your black felt and glue it onto the center of your foam half ball to make it look like an eyeball.

Optional: Cut a small/teensy crescent moon shape out of white paper for the pupil. You can also cut out 5 long black felt triangles to create eyelashes.
