I have been trying to come up with a really great, original wreath idea for Halloween for the last couple of years.  Well, all the monsters on Craftster inspired me, so here's what I ended up with.

It's made with fun fur, ping pong balls, a paint pen, stuffing, and lots of hot glue (I didn't feel like sewing)  It's basically just a wreath-shaped pillow with a ribbon on the back to hang it on the door.

Supplies- 3/4 yard fun fur, 12 ping pong balls, hot glue, plastic bags, black paint pen

Begin by tracing two wreath shapes on the back of the fun fur and cut out.

cut slits about 1 1/4 inches long where you want the eyes.  Push a ping pong ball through the slit, then ring with glue.

Glue the two layers of fur together and stuff with plastic bags.

Use glue to close the hole in the wreath.  Sew a ribbon to the back for hanging.

Use a black paint pen to draw eyes on the ping pong balls.  You're done!

If I could pick one word to describe myself, it would probably be Fluffy Puff Marshamallows... or Homestar. Either one, really.  They both fit.

I think that may be the greatest creation EVER! I love Halloween and I love monsters and using ping-pong balls for the eyes is such a great idea! Totally awesome!!!

Crafters have a neverending list of procrastination possibilities...

that is SUCH a clever idea!  Reminds me of "Monsters Inc" or maybe Cookie Monster.  I'm sure you'll get lots of comments and compliments.

That is so cute. It reminds me of the blue guy from Monsters inc. What a great idea....I would love to have a chair or something that looked like that.
