The October issue of FamilyFun magazine arrived in our mailbox, and I marked quite a few ideas to try during craft time with Katie. I showed them all to her, and she chose three projects. I had to buy a few items at the store, then we set to work on them.
These glowing eyes are – honestly – one of the easiest (and coolest) crafts we’ve done in a while. It cost me $2.50 for a pack of six battery powered tea lights at Deals, then $1.47 for six ping pong balls at Target. (I already had permanent markers on hand.) That comes out to about 66 cents for each finished craft.
Katie had the brilliant idea to color two of the balls to look like a Jack-o-lantern and a witch. We added a pipe cleaner stem to the Jack-o-lantern, and a paper hat to the witch. Aren’t these adorable? I can’t wait to decorate for Halloween and line them up on our windowsills. Dan’s thinking of using them inside his carved pumpkin too. I’ll post photos if he decides to do that!
