{Freebie} Getting Crafty with Googlie-Eyes!


Please excuse me while I continue my love affair with googlie-eyes...


I started with 2 flat wood wreath forms that I found at Joann's for about $1 each.  I spray painted them black, then just randomly glued eye balls to each one.  Definitely buy your googlies at the dollar store - you'll get LOTS more for less than you can get at a craft store.  I also just used regular old Elmer's Glue and it worked perfectly (and dried clear).


Of course, in my house... no craft is complete without incorporating some kind of printable art.  I think the splash of green on the eyeball finished it off perfectly!




The thing I love about printable circles... is they can be used for ANYTHING!  I found some spider web ribbon in my stash, wrapped it around the water bottles, attached the circles using double sided tape and now have a super cute addition to any treat delivery.  Use them as treat bag tags or cupcake toppers, class parties or to spice up your table tonight!

What will you use yours for?

Very cute, it looks like a fun project to do with my daughter and grandson on Friday. How much ribbon did you use and did you find it at a Dollar Store also?

Hi, Ladies! Thanks for your comments. I probably bought the ribbon at Michaels - and used about a yard.

Kiki... so sorry to hear you have had trouble with scribd! Email me your address and I'll send you the file. Anyone else out there have trouble?

Just to save anyone the price of gas and time, I was unable to find any flat wood wreath forms of any price, size or shape at Joann's in Taylorsville. The bottles are much easier to find but not as fun to make with the grandkids.

Visiting from the blog hop at theidearoom.net! Your project caught my eye immediately from all the others! Fabulous!

I have used heavy cardboard as a wreath "form" when wood wasn't available. It works great IF you use heavy, not flimsy.
