eyeballsBowl Full of Eyeballs

This project comes courtesy of craft expert Beverly whose website is chock full of great ideas!

Materials:

Plastic Wiffle balls
2 yards of white fabric
Freezer paper (available at most grocery stores)
Fabric glue

Directions:

  • Print eyeballs on fabric by first adhering freezer paper to fabric by placing the wax side down on the wrong side of the fabric.  Then use a medium iron to adhere paper to the fabric.
  • Download the eyeball PDF by visiting THIS LINK and print out the eyeballs onto your fabric.
  • Peel off your freezer paper and cut out your eyes leaving enough fabric on both sides for wrapping.
  • Wrap each ball with strips of fabric.
  • Lay eyes on balls and tuck the end of the fabric under one of the wrapped pieces, adding fabric glue where necessary.

Boo-Berry Pops

You will need:

6 whole fresh strawberries
½ cup white chocolate chips or vanilla candy chips (melted)
Chocolate sprinkles or mini chocolate chips
6 lollipop sticks (available at most craft stores)
Wax Paper

Directions:

  • Dip entire strawberry (except for the stem) into the melted white chocolate.
  • Place berry on a plate covered with wax paper. Make sure the pointy end of the strawberry, which will be the top of the ghost, is facing up.
  • Add eyes and a mouth with chocolate chips or sprinkles.
  • Repeat with remaining strawberries.
  • Place “ghosts” in freezer for 8-10 minutes, or until coating is solid. Use a table knife to cut off the stem and place a lollipop stick in the bottom of each strawberry.
