Bush Eyes

We actually spotted some spooky eyes peaking out from a tree on Pinterest that someone created using beach balls. We thought it looked so much fun t o make, but didn’t want to waste time looking for beach balls this time of year and didn’t want to spend the money for them. My 8 year old found these plastic pumpkins that you can purchase in different stores for 1 dollar and he said they would work perfect. He was right and we love how they turned out! They take 30 minutes to make and such a fun Halloween craft that the kids can make themselves!

How To make Bush Eyes

We started out by purchasing 2 plastic pumpkin trick or treat buckets that you can get at about any store for $1.00. Any color will work. We went with green…

Pumpkin Baskets

Flip them over and cover the middle part that sticks out with aluminum foil. Tape the edges. We painted them white using white spray paint that we already had….

Painted White Pumpkin Baskets

Take the aluminum foil off after it’s dry. Find something round like a bowl or a jar lid and trace around it using a pencil….

Tracing The Eye

Paint the middle with black paint….

Filling The Eye in Black

We used red paint to make creepy veins…
