*Eerie Eyes*


A last minute decoration that I had to make were the eerie eyes out of toilet paper rolls. I always have a stash of toilet paper rolls for projects. When a opportunity comes up to use them, I take it. The only time consuming part was cutting out the eyes. I had to bend the roll to get a good first cut into it, then it went smoothly. My sister helped me, so this took about a half hour and I made about 10 different sets of eyes. This total project cost me $1.00. I bought the glow-sticks at The Dollar Tree and 15 came in a pack. I ended putting them throughout the house at night and with all of the lights off, they looked spooky. It was a nice extra craft project to make to set the scene for Halloween!

I found the green and blue glow-stick colors worked best because they were the brightest
