Inspired by a photo of large eyes in a tree, I decided to make my own version of spooky monster eyes that light up!
- LED tealights from the dollar store
- four plastic plates
- a paperclip to make a hook
- Hot glue gun
- exacto knife
The second photo here shows the back of the eyes and the basic construction. I suspect most of you can make these without a step by step!
Trace the tealight and make slits that extend slightly beyond the traced circle.
I recommend placing the tealight behind the pupil. Otherwise you will have a very bright spot on the whites of your eyes, this is why I have the tealight off center.
Push the tealight through the hole and secure with tape.
Cut out two black circles and glue in place so they will be above your tealights.
I recommend you make your pupils larger than I did. I think it would look better from the road.
Bend a paperclip to make a hook and glue it to the top of your eye.
Hot glue your pupil plates to your tealight plates.
Hang them up and ENJOY!
I wish I could tell you how long the batteries last, I left mine turned on for three days straight and the batteries were still going strong.
