Fast forward a few days...
My munchkins were in bed and my husband and I sat down to watch a movie. I pulled out all of the lollipops and my Halloween ribbons. As I laid all of my stuff out I had a brilliant idea!! Sure, ribbons tied on to the sticks would be cute, but Monster faces would be even more cute!! I gathered all of my supplies and started making my little monsters.
It's super easy to do and literally only took me a couple of minutes to put them all together! YOU can do it, too! Not that you necessarily need a tutorial on how to recreate these for yourself (and all the little monsters in your life). ;) It doesn't take any special skills to make these, just the ability to use some scissors and some glue-and the effect is really cute!!
Here is what I used to make my monsters:
A bunch of googly eyes (all different sizes, colors, types)
Hot glue gun
Glittery foam craft sheet
Have fun with them, go ahead and add whatever embellishments tickle your fancy!! ;)
Then I cut the glitter craft foam with my scissors creating various shapes to create "teeth" and "hair/eyebrows." You could really use a bunch of different materials for this step. Contact paper shapes would adhere directly to the plastic just like a sticker. Or you could use regular scrapbook paper or cardstock. You could even cut the shapes out using your Cricut or Silhouette machines... I'm just sayin'...
Here they all are!! I mostly used the fancy-dancy googly eyes but regular googly eyes work just as well too!!
|Look at that guy on the top right... He has 2 pupils in one googly eye.. |
Ooohh, EXTRA creepy!! ;) ha ha
And there you have it. Monster Loll-Eye-Pops!!
(ha ha, do you see what I did there? I crack my self up sometimes)
