Hello All

Wanted to share this project that I just made as it was really quick and there is still time for folks to whip one out.



I will post more pictures later. So easy. I took a grapevine wreath and painted it black. Then bought several different sizes of plain wooded cabinet knobs.

Spray paint the knobs white and then paint your eye ball how you would like. Spray with laquer to give a wet shine to it all.

Hot glue wire into the hole on the back of the knob and wire eyeballs into place on the wreath.

Now (and this will make a mess) hot glue gobs of moss around the eyeballs and wreath.

Decorate with rubber snakes and jeweled spiders.

This was so much fun to make and it cracks me up every time I look at it.

Enjoy!

Thanks  Cheesy It was so much fun to make.
I did find that if you want to add in the red veins it is much easier to use a thin tipped Sharpe marker, rather than trying to paint them on.

Also if you want the iris to have some depth. Paint first with your eye color, say brown. Then paint a second coat of a translucent color that compliments it, like gold. However only paint the middle of the iris and leave just a tiny rim of the original color. It really makes for a cool effect.
