After a couple of minutes of paint dabbing you have each ball looking like this:
Wrap the feather boa around the wreath to get full coverage. There is no need to glue the entire boa to the wreath, just the ends of the boas. I found that 1 boa only covered half the wreath and luckily I had two on hand. When you get to the second half, glue the second boa just like how you did in the beginning. Sorry, folks, I forgot to take photos of this process but it's easy cheesy.
Glue your painted Styrofoam balls together to make a pair of eyes with the hot glue gun. I glued them where I had some white left because that is where the paperclip was inserted.
Once you have your feather boa on the wreath and the Styrofoam balls glued together, add a strip of glue on the wreath to place the eyeballs. Carefully separate the boa where you want to glue and then quickly attach the Styrofoam balls. Be sure to have those feathers out of the way or else they'll get on the glue. Add the googly eyes with the glue gun once the eyeballs are in place.
Use some Halloween ribbon to hang your wreath.
You can't see my Halloween ribbon in the pic but I know it's there and sometimes it peeks out. :)
Bada bing bada boom you have yourself a not-to-spooky yet fun Halloween wreath. My kids love it especially since there are so many colors. It was my son's idea to use the multi-color eyes instead of the normal black/white ones. He sure is getting crafty clever!
