TIE-DYE AND WIGGLE EYES
Wrap a foam wreath in tie-dye fabric and liven it up with wiggle eyes as shown here by Sharon Currier for The Dow Chemical Company’s Crafts ’n Coffee blog.
STEP 1 Press an orange tie-dyed craft bandanna (or a ¼ yard of similar fabric) to remove any wrinkles. With scissors or a rotary cutter, trim the hemmed edge off all four sides. Cut the bandanna into 1¼"-wide strips. You will need approximately 12 strips.
STEP 2 Pin the end of one fabric strip onto the back of a 12" x 2" foam wreath. Wrap the strip around the wreath and pin the other end to the back of the wreath. Repeat, pinning and wrapping strips until the wreath is covered.
STEP 3 Cut the stems off three silk gerbera daisies, two black and one orange/ yellow. Use a low-temperature glue gun to adhere the daisy heads along the lower right side of the wreath as shown.
STEP 4 Remove the legs from a stuffed raven and glue it to the top left of the wreath as shown.
STEP 5 Glue two 1" wiggle eyes onto the front of the wreath, left of the raven.
STEP 6 Glue a single 1" wiggle eye in the center of each black daisy, and glue two ½" wiggle eyes in the center of the orange/yellow daisy.
STEP 7 Stretch spider webbing across the back of the wreath so it’s visible in the center opening. Pin and glue in place.
STEP 8 Tie another bandanna strip around the top of the wreath for a hanger.
