Creepy Eyes: DIY Halloween Wall Decor Idea
I was playing around today with a really cool 1880’s ad for artificial eyes, from an old Pharmacists catalog in my collection. It occurred to me that this would be a fast and fun Halloween project! You can download these fun creepy eyes for free to use in your crafts and decor. They are great for adding a spooky vibe to glass-framed prints or photos of people or even of animals.
Step 1: After printing out the eyeball pages, (I printed two copies so that I could have matching eyeballs for each art piece) I just cut out the eyes and taped them over the glass of various portraits in my home. Make sure you do this over prints, or photos, that have glass over top of them. If you tape them directly to paper prints, or paintings etc, it could ruin the original art!
This was so fun and easy to do. This would be a great project to do with the kids, if you don’t have antique art in your home, you can do the same technique with family photos ( again just makes sure there is glass covering the image, so you don’t damage the original)! I’ve included two versions of the creepy Eyeballs, the sepia version would look great framed as an Instant Art piece too!
