154797_29Oct14_eye2 Some people just aren’t the sunshine and lollipops kind of people. They want Halloween all year round. They like things a bit more on the dark side. That doesn’t mean they are all gloom and doom. If you have one of those types of people in your life, why not make them a Beaded Eye Jewelry Scarf by CooCoosnest. This is such a clever craft using glass beads for the eyes. If you didn’t want to make a scarf, you could make a necklace or a pin. It is also great for making an evil eye to keep away bad spirits.

Gift giving doesn’t have to be dismal if you make a present using our Handmade Gift Ideas.
