I have a thing for googly eyes. They make me go completely googly on the inside. For realz. And I can’t explain it. Googly eyes are my catnip. And Halloween is the perfect time to break out my giant stash of googly eyes. Like this Googly Eye Headband. It is crazy simple to make, and is the perfect “un-costume”. Maybe you work in an industry where you can’t dress up for Halloween, but want your attire to be a nod to this festival of tricks and treats. Or maybe your child’s school doesn’t allow costumes, but you can’t resist bending the rules on the 31st of October. Take a few minutes, and whip up this fun Googly Eye Headband!
This project is part of Craft Lightning Week. All week long, I’ve been sharing 15-minute-or-less crafts here on 30 Minute Crafts as part of the series – so have my friends Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and Jen from 100 Directions. AND, we invited a bunch of our crafty friends from around the internet to join in. Scroll down to check out all their fun projects!
Supplies for Googly Eye Headband:
Googly Eyes (you can use all the same, or different sizes and colors)
Headband (wide or skinny – up to you!)
Just glue the eyes in place. On a wide headband, you’ll want different sized eyes, Stagger them for a less structured look.
I really like the thin band with the row of same-sized googly eyes. It is also easier to make. Just add a line of glue about an inch or an inch and a half long. Then put on googly eyes. Repeat all the way around the headband. Your Googly Eye Headband is complete.
I’ve got one more day of 15 minute Halloween craft ideas… be sure to come back tomorrow to check it out!
