I saw a picture on Pinterest of giant eyes on a tree and it gave me the idea to make my own version.http://media-cache-ec5.pinterest.com/upload/68961438015576467_yEXzMioh_c.jpg
- LED tealights from the dollar store,
- two paper plates
- a paperclip to make a hook.
I'm sure you all can figure this out, here's a picture from the back so you can see what I did. I put the tealight off center behind the black pupil. When I put the light in the center of the plate it made a very bright spot in that area at night. I liked the 'white' part of the eye to be lit uniformly. I know, OCD much?
Anyway, this was super fast to make and it looks really cute on the bush by our driveway, I may have to make a bunch more.
My daughter said she liked it better than some Halloween decorations because it wasn't "TOO" spooky.
Now I'm debating about making a mouth, what do you think?
