Iron Craft #19- Monsters, Witches, Ghosts- OH MY!

Halloween! It is a favorite around our house.  However, as Thing 1 and Thing 2 get older the focus on my making them a costume is changing.

These are a few of my favorites from 2007 and 2008.

I have material for making a table runner but my sewing machine is broken so that is out. Walking through Target the other day I saw my inspiration for my project. They had ornaments painted like eyeballs- but I was not going to pay what they were asking for them so I decided I could make them myself. I had the perfect vase to put them in.

This project came together pretty easily. You will need something to be the eyeball itself.

I found white ornaments at Michaels and glitter paint.

First you paint the pupil. You need to wait of the paint to dry between each step. Notice the paint will change color as it dries.

Then add the eye color.

Then red for the veins.

Those turned out great! Glad you could find the ornaments.

Your sewing machine is broken again?!
