Wanted for gluing googly eyes to other googly eyes

I got a great deal on a pretty long strand of skull beads and had a bunch of fun making these:



They haven't yet decided what they want to be (keyrings, necklaces, etc.) so for the time being they're just hanging out in my glass cupboard...I also can't quite decide what to call them (I mean as a group - I'm such a dork they all already have individual names)....Day of the Dead Buddies? Skeleton Pals? Baby's First Nightmare?

Suggestions?

very cool, my sister and I made a bunch of beadie buddies and we left it up to people to choose what they wanted to do with them. we just made ours from beads with a large bead for the head. Some of them sort of reminded me of ballerinas cause we used a cartwheel bead on the body like a skirt. You can put one of those hooks on the top to hook it to keychain or maybe a big zipper pull.
