Googly Eyes For Halloween! Short & Simple DIY October 27 2017

Hello, fellow crafters! Halloween is just around the corner, and we just love all the creative and creepy themed DIYs we've come across online. If you're looking for a cute, not-so-scary, and kid-friendly DIY for Halloween, you've come to the right place! For this adorable and easy craft, you'll need these materials:

  1. Googly Eyes (we got our at our local craft supply store)
  2. Hot glue gun (or any strong adhesive)
  3. Double sided tape and scissors (optional)
  4. Something you want to decorate!

It's pretty straightforward from here! Simply take your item (a bag, a mug, a vase, etc) and glue your googly eyes directly onto it with your hot glue gun. Here's where the double sided tape and scissors come in: you can use the double sided tape to plot out the position of your googly eyes before gluing them down. Also, if you don't want the googly eyes to be fixed permanently onto the item, you can stop at this step. That way, you can easily remove the googly eyes whenever you want to!

And then, we went a little ga-ga for googly eyes! Here's what our ORGANIZE JACQ and one of our plain CANVAS POUCH looked like with a pair of googly eyes!

But we didn't stop there ;) Here's our SLIP ON EMMA looking very spider-like with a total of 8 googly eyes! We love how the eyes on the outside match the polka dots on the inner lining.

But wait! We still had a lot of googly eyes left over...so we stuck them onto a few of the small vases and pots lying around the shop, and we just loved how they came out. These ones may be our favourite outcome, take a look!

And last, but most certainly not least, we stuck some googly eyes on a coffee mug! It turned out so cute, almost like Chip from Beauty and the Beast, and it really brings the plain white mug to life.

And there you have it! We adore how versatile and easy this DIY turned out to be, not to mention the adorable effect of inanimate objects coming to life! How would you craft with googly eyes? Which items would you bring to life?

Until next time, have a spooky Halloween, and happy crafting!
