   Monster eye decorations Posted by Jo

As I mentioned on Facebook last week, I thought the bush in front of my house needed eyes to make him look like a monster for Halloween. Little Jo helped me out with this super simple and inexpensive decoration.

First, we drew two circles on the back of a styrofoam plate. I used my circle cutter guides which made it super easy, but you can use two different size circles from anything round as a template. Then Little Jo colored in the iris and the pupil with markers. Once the marker dried, I added a coat of glow-in-the-dark Mod Podge over the eye so that it would look spooky at night. I then flipped the plates over and attached a twist tie with a bit of duct tape so that I could fasten it on the bush.

Little Jo and Mini Me love the bush monster. It was so simple, which is my kind of holiday decorating!
