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
- 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!
