Happy Halloween Glitter Eye Frame


Thursday is Tutorial Day!
When Courtney from A Diamond in the Stuff  showed off her A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E. Googly Eye Halloween Frame 
I knew I  wanted NEEDED one too!
Have you checked out her blog?  Well if not you need to!
(Then you can all thank me later..ahem...)

Yes, I did!
I so copied her brilliant idea!

This is what I used for mine:
-Dollar Store Frame
-Lime green glitter (also from the dollar store, came in a pack of 3)
-Mod podge/ Brush
-Glue Gun
-Googly Eyes (dollar store)
-leftover piece of scrapbook paper
-Happy Halloween printed out on white paper

Now, this is how I did it!
I mod podged the entire frame. While it was still wet, I went to town sprinkling that glitter everywhere. After I glittered it, I waited about a 1/2 hour, Then turned the frame upside down to dump off the excess glitter, and that is when I realized it didn't stick in some places. But it's ok with me. (I think....for now)  Next, I modpodged over the glitter so it wouldn't come off.
I did a pretty heavy coat. This took about a hour to dry. 
(in the meantime I was checking it every 5 minutes 'cause I'm impatient!)
I wanted to start gluing on those eyes! All right, now that is was finally dry, I started laying the eyes out on it to kinda get the idea where I wanted them, Then I decided just to glue those babies on because they were't staying where I put them anyway so I randomly glued, starting with the big ones first. After they were all glued on, I smiled....
yep, a big one cause I already loved how it looked!
  Then I went through my scrapbook paper stash and found some paper that I liked, and cut it out stuck it in the frame and then realized I needed to have it say something...hmmm..
that is when it has sat for a few days....then it came to me! 
I was trying to decide what I could do to not take away from the cute paper. If I printed on it, the words probably wouldn't show up, if I used too white then it would stand out too much. I decided to use the white paper I chose the font ELISE and then printed it out, ripped about the wording, and here's my brilliant addition, I did a couple of shakes of the lime green glitter onto the glass, layed the Happy Halloween words in,then the glue or anything, put the back of the frame on and did a little happy dance because I LOVE how it turned out!
Now...the question is what do you guys think?
Do you all think I should re-glitter the bare spots or leave it?

UPDATE:  I re-glittered after I posted!  
MUCH BETTER!  All full of glitter! 

I'm linking up to these great parties!


  1. "Eye" like it. hehehe If it's not too much hassle, I think I would reglitter it. Otherwise, since you mentioned it, I think you'll fixate on it every time you look at the frame. (Sorry.)

  2. I love that green glitter. So perfect for Halloween. And the scratch of scrap paper you used goes so perfectly.

    As to the little bare spots, as Grammy said, I think I'd reglitter them, too.

    Have a great week, Kirsten!
