Floating Eyeballs

This idea was all Addison.  

A few weeks ago he had this idea to paint an eyeball.  Who knows what goes on in the mind of a 10 year old…but he wouldn’t let the idea go so off we went to the craft store.  The first one turned out great and we had the bright idea to paint several eyeballs of various sizes and turn them into a creepy Halloween decoration.  

Floating eyeballs are so easy.  Supplies:

  • Styrofoam balls (various sizes)
  • craft paint – red, black, blue, green, brown (or whatever color you want to make your iris)
  • floral pins (U shaped)
  • thick fishing line or clear jewelry thread/cord

Paint and allow to dry.  Tie the jewelry thread to a U shaped floral pin and secure to the eyeball.  Hang and enjoy watching your trick or treaters reactions.  Bwahahahahahahaha
