Creepy Eyeball Project - - Look Out!

HA!  I crack myself up with my little puns.  Eyeball.  Look out.  Oh, ma-a-an.  Classic.

So, I have had the 'ingredients' for this little project for a while, but I haven't been in the crafty mood...so I waited until today.  I've got just enough time to panic and think that I don't have enough time to do all the things I need to do for Halloween.  That's called 'motivation' in my world.  I've been told it's called procrastination...whatever that is.

We'll jump right in!  First, you'll need:

Googly Eyes, of all shapes and sizes (lots!)
Red glitter glue (or you can use regular paint in Halloween color of choice)
Cheap picture frame (got mine for $1 at Michael's, $0.60 if I use a coupon!)
Funky ribbon of choice
Letters of choice, from wherever (cricut, etc, if you have it, or store-bought)
Glue/epoxy of choice
Next, unwrap frame and get to it.

I think I used too much glitter glue, and probably should have used my fingers to rub it around, as that paintbrush was irkin' me.  I declare!   *ponder*  Wow, I'm in full Southern mode, y'all.

At this point, I'm having fun putting the eyeballs into the glitter glue.  Yay, me!  Just a note:  Obviously, if you use paint, you'd let that dry and then glue the eyes on.  I know it doesn't always need to be said, but I'm covering my bases.


I never want to see another one again.  Seriously, I think I googly-eyed for two hours straight!  I can set this aside for a few hours to let it dry.

After all that glue was dry, I ran a black sharpie around the inner and outer edges of the frame. I love the drippy glitter glue.  Makes it creepy...well, creepier.

I then wrapped a bit of ribbon around the bottom, and held it there with my handy-dandy clippy things.  I have to say, I lucked out with the ribbon.  I had no idea it was see-through, and that really works for this project!     ------>

I glued the very punny letters in place and filled the frame with nothing.  Look:  that one eye has two pupils.

I really like the red glitter glue.  It's icky and shiny and gross.  Enjoy, while I go to my next panic project!


  1. I wasn't too sure about this at the beginning, but I have to say I like the final results. Thanks for posting pictures of each stage you went through. That was helpful to see.

    Sorry, had to do it in pirate mode to make the joke!!!
