Fake Eyeball Craft
This is a guest post by my lovely, crafty friend Leigh. I’m so excited for her to share some of her amazing ideas! She always making something awesome at her house!
While I was elbow deep in Halloween crafting, I decided that I had to have some eyeballs to complete my decorations. Why buy when you can create? Off to the the local craft store to purchase the necessary supplies (and a few not so necessary) to make this fake eyeball craft.
This craft is an easy addition to a lot of other decorations. Plus it’s easy and inexpensive to make. And your kids will love helping with it!
What You’ll Need
- ping pong balls or round wooden balls
- black, red, blue or brown paint pens
- white craft paint (unless you are using ping pong balls)
- paint brush
If you opted for ping pong balls, you can skip this step. Paint the wooden balls white. I placed mine on a strip of tape to hold them still while I painted them.
Using your paint pens, paint the iris. You can stick with “normal” eye colors (blue, brown, or green), or go all out and create unusual colors for monsters or jack-o-lanterns (yellow, pink, purple.)
Paint the pupil after the iris dries. You don’t have to stick to a normal circle either – think of the shape of a cat’s pupil.
Paint the blood vessels. Start with one wiggly line and branch lines off of it. You can finish with a clear gloss to make them shiny and more realistic.
Tada! Now you have oodles of eyeballs! Use your imagination and put them to good use this Halloween.
