If you are thinking about making this little project, there are a few things you will need to make this work.

If you are wanting volunteers (AKA kids) to help, those usually aren't too hard to find.

Most of the stuff you will need should be found around your house, here's a list of what you will need:

You Will Need:

  1. Empty Toilet Paper or Paper Towel Roll

    This is the staple for making this spooky craft.

  2. Scissors

    So you can cut out your spooky eye shapes.

  3. Paper

    To hide the light from the sides of the rolls so you only focus on the eyes.

  4. Tape

    This holds the paper on to cover the light from showing.

If you are a bit more talented in the crafts department, and have the tools required to do it, you can use left over plastic pipes and all sorts of other products to build this Halloween craft. Use your imagination and let it run wild.

Make sure that before you have taped off the second end, you have already broken and placed your glow stick inside of the roll... or you may have a fun time trying to get it in there ;)

      @Lady Lorelei: We had some fake fingers around our yard too last year, and you have no idea how many kids came up to us telling us about these fingers lol. Our graveyard was a huge hit as well. Halloween is so much fun I love to decorate :)

      Ha I love the Halloween eyes in the bush craft idea. Halloween is a great time to be spooking people and this one would certainly have kids looking two and three times toward the bush as they are walking up the pathway to the door.
