Now on to my project – Glow in the Dark Monster Eyes!
 
Here’s what you will need:
Paint Brushes – 1″ flat wash and #4 round, pencil, 8″ Circle Template and 4″ Circle Template (I used a dessert plate and a drinking glass).
Here’s how to make it:
1.) Base coat both half balls with Glow in the Dark Paint, let dry.
2.) Trace 8″ circle in center of each half ball to create pupil.  Trace 4″ circle in center of 8″ circle to create iris.
3.) Paint 8″ circle Lavender, let dry.  Outline with jagged lines in Lemonade, let dry.
4.) Paint 4″ circle Lamp Black, let dry.  Outline with Desert Turquoise, let dry.
5.) Create bloodshot veins with dimensional fabric paint, let dry.
Insert your creepy Monster Eyes in a shrub, vine or bush in the front yard to let all of the neighbors know why “I always feel like somebody’s watching me!”
The Monster Eyes will also make the trick-or-treaters do a double take when walking up to your front door!

 

They are quick and easy to make and are a great project to tackle with your kids.  Make several sets in different sizes and colors to create an entire gang of monsters for Halloween!
