Anyone remember that kid’s song that started Great Big Gobs…lol! That is what I think of when I see these eyeballs! This was another project that I sold at the recent craft fair. I forgot to take a picture of all the completed ones…they were quite a site! I only had two left, so I’m sure those will sell at the next craft fair.
I used the retired halloween designer paper from last year and Batty for You. The plastic tubes were leftover from the Bath Oil beads that I used in the apothecary jars. I’m glad I kept them! The wrapped eyeball candy I found at the dollar store, they are chocolate crisps candy. I knew I wanted to wrap a belly band around the center of the tube with Batty for You, but I was searching for a way to place something like an eyeball on top.
I originally found some white bath fizz balls at Michael’s and altered one with red eyeball veins and a paper iris, but was afraid that kids would try to eat it, thinking it was candy, too. Then, I found these Gummi Eyeballs at Walmart. Aren’t they a riot? They were already packaged in their individual containers. I just trimmed down the packaging a little and added a pop dot to secure it to the top of the plastic tube. (The plastic tube I closed and secured with a bit of Crystal Effects around the lid.)
I LOVED how these turned out! They were quick and easy to make. The kids that came by thought they were great!
