Spooky Eyes Outdoor Halloween DIY Decor

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, mostly because fall is my favorite season!  But for other reasons as well, the fun events, traditions, decorations and costumes!  Both of my kids are a bit sensitive to scary things around Halloween time so we have to be extra careful with our costumes and decorations.  I decided to try something new for this year.  Sure, these are a little spooky but mostly fun!

We have a few large bushes in our front yard that I will be adding these fun but spooky eye lights to for some creative and fun Halloween decorations.  This Halloween DIY is super easy and really fun for the whole family to get involved with.

Instructions:

1.  Plan what type of eyes you will be creating.  We went with a typical eye shape with an added "Blood Shot" look.  

2.  Start with the pupils of the eyes, color in with multiple colors of sharpies to all for more colored light to shine through.

3.  Let marker dry completely before adding batteries to the closet lights.

4.  Place eyes into bushes outside.  No need to secure them, just place them in the bushes.  

Optional - you could also set these eyes on the windowsills inside to show through the windows.

5.  Turn on lights at night, remember to turn them off before heading to bed.

Talk about easy!! Because these are battery operated you can literally put these eyes anywhere in the yard and not have to worry about finding a plug! I cannot wait to add a few more spooky eyes to the bushes out front.  I think it will be great for our Trick or Treaters on Halloween too!  Our bushes look like little monsters now.  Love it!

  7. I can't believe how easy those are to make! Very clever, and just spooky enough to add some fun to your bushes without being terrifying for kids who are sensitive to scary things. My son went through a phase where he was terrified of Halloween decorations, so I was always careful with what we used to decorate.
