Get your front door ready for Halloween with a monster wreath made from pinecones.
With its googly eyes and crazy teeth, this fun Halloween wreath takes less than one hour and is a festive way to bring fall to your porch.
Get started by gluing pinecones to your wreath form. Attach the large pinecones to the outer rim then fill in with medium and small ones.
Tip: Hold the pinecones in place with toothpicks stuck in the wreath form while the glue dries.
Spray paint the wreath form and pinecones in the color of your choice. The above color is green citrus.
Next, draw the googly eyes. Using a black marker, create black circles for eyes on the foam balls and give each a different size for a googly, goofy look.
Tip: Use a red marker (pictured) to create zigzag lines for a red eye look.
Create the bowtie. Cut a 12-inch piece of larger ribbon and a 3-inch piece of smaller ribbon. Fold the ends of the larger ribbon so that the ends meet in the middle.
Apply glue to the middle to hold the ribbon together. Wrap the smaller piece of ribbon around the center to cover and create a bow.
Now you’ll create the monster teeth. Cut teeth wedges of different sizes from the foam board, making them anywhere from 1 to 1 1/2 inches in size.
Assemble the monster face. Using a hot glue gun, secure the eyeballs, teeth and bowtie in place.
Happy fall and happy Halloween!
