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.
DIY Monster Wreath
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!
- Cut cardboard into a 16 inch circle with a 14 inch circle cut out of the center for the wreath base.
- Wrap the purple yarn around the cardboard fully covering it. You can hot glue the purple yard onto the back every few inches to keep it secure.
- Make 5-6 pom poms with the green yarn and glue to the top of the wreath
- Glue multiple size googly eyes right below the hair
- Cut out some jagged teeth from cardboard, spray paint white, and hot glue onto the wreath.
You can use any colors of yarn you want!
