How to Make Monster Eyes

Get at least 5 pieces of black poster board for two average windows. Measure twice, cut once! Measure the size of your windows, we were just in luck and the poster board fit top to bottom in each pane, but not the width. We had to cut the 5th poster board to make up the difference for each of the 4 "panes."

Cut a large triangle out of two of the four poster boards.
Use a plate or something of the like for a template and cut black circles out of the piece that you've cut from the triangle as pictured.
Tape the eyeball to the poster board making sure that the bottom of the circle is even with the bottom of the poster board.

Use yellow and orange tissue paper to cover the cut out triangle (I put yellow down first, then orange behind it to make it a dark yellow).
Tape into windows and have a happy Halloween!


Look for crazy eyes coming soon!

Love it! Our front windows would be perfect for this. I think we'll have to make a trip to the craft store for some posterboard this weekend.
Thanks!

I did it on the side windows because with our house when you come up over the hill and just round the corner you see the side of our house. I wish I could get a great night time pic from down the road. It looks like there are two big eyes on the top of the hill!
