Last Minute Halloween: Super Easy Glowing Eyes Yard Decoration

spooky glowing Halloween eyes

Ready to deck out your yard with spooky Halloween props? Here’s a little something you can throw together in just a few minutes with stuff you might have in your craft stash right now.

All you need for these glowing eyes are:

  • paper towel tube
  • glow stick
  • scissors
  • pencil or marker
  • tape (optional)

Don’t have a bunch of paper towel tubes on hand? Not to worry, it’s even EASIER if you make your own tube out of construction paper!

Here’s what to do:

  • Draw the eyes on the tube. If you have trouble making the eyes symmetrical, draw one eyeball on a piece of scrap paper then transfer to the tube. Remember to flip it over for the other eye!
  • Cut out the eye with sharp scissors.
  • Break a glow stick, put in the tube. You’ll want a thick glow stick for this–bracelet size sticks don’t provide enough light.
  • Tape the ends shut to keep the stick from falling out.
  • Place in your shrubs!

    • It works great, just use the bigger glow sticks! The thin ones barely lit up the tube….if you only have thin glow sticks, throw in a couple!
