DIY Monster Wreath

Sharing is caring!

This year I decided to make a monster party fall porch and really needed the perfect wreath. Of course that means a DIY monster wreath!

I think if you were to be invited to a monster party, there would be a silly monster welcoming everyone in to the party! That’s the feel I wanted for this wreath.

Yarn seemed like the easiest and most cost effective way to make this monster wreath. I used purple and green yarn, but you could use any colors you wanted!

For the wreath base, I used cardboard. I didn’t have a wreath base and didn’t feel like purchasing one. Using a different wreath, I roughly measured the size and then used that to cut a circle out of cardboard.

My wreath is 16 inches wide, with the cut out circle being 14 inches. It’s not perfectly symmetrical, but I actually think that adds to the it’s monster qualities.

I started by wrapping the purple yarn around the cardboard until it was fully covered. Then I made pom poms with the green yarn and glued those to the top of the monsters head.

Finally, I glued multiple sizes of googly eyes on to the monsters head, near the hair.

I stepped back, and still felt like the monster was missing something. Teeth!

I cut out some jagged teeth from cardboard, spray painted them white, and then hot glued them onto the wreath.

He’s silly and slightly scary, but in the best way!
