TRY IT THURSDAY.....Eyes In The Bushes

We ALL love pinterest and can get lost there for days!!! I don't know about you BUT I pin LOTS of stuff (and I try to divide it into categories that I will remember where and what I pinned). AS was the case with these "eyes in the bushes" (ORIGINAL idea and post credited to http://www.thriftycraftygirl.com/2011/10/31-days-of-halloween-eyes-in-bushes.html check out her link!!). This has been on my list since LAST Halloween BUT I never "have time" (when in essence it took 10 minutes while watching an episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County!!). I gathered my supplies

(my kids kept throwing away the cardboards from the toilet paper - they were SO efficient!)

OF COURSE I had to add my own twist and cover the tubes in orange damask duct tape (which can be found at #dollartree). I free handed my eyes on the tubes in #sharpie

I used a paring knife to cut into the shape and scissors for the rest.....

Can YOU see my spooky eyes?!?!? I used battery operated tea lights (thriftycraftygirl suggests glow sticks which I think probably work MUCH better as they go the entire length of the tube).

Have YOU tired this project yet?!?! What does your outdoor Halloween decor look like?!?! Leave me a link so I can check it out!). Speaking of outdoor Halloween decor did any of you catch the Hallmark movie October Kiss? SO cheesy BUT oh so cute!!!
