Googly Eye barette

Tis now the very witching time of night, When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out Contagion to this world. --  William Shakespeare

Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
--  William Shakespeare

Inspired by the cartoon Scooby Dooby Doo, googly eyes peak out from your hair when wearing this barrette.  It's an easy peasy project that will take you only minutes to complete.  You can adapt it to any size barrette from small side clips to extra long pony tail holders for thick hair.  Add or subtract the number of googly eyes as required.

 

 

You will need:

Aleene's Stop Fraying
french barrette
googly eyes
6" of 1/2" wide black velvet ribbon
hot glue gun
hot glue sticks
scissors

1.     Measure the ribbon along the length of your barrette.  In my case the barrette is 4" long, so I cut a 4.5" piece.  Cut notches into the ribbon on each end.  Add a dab of Aleene's Stop Fraying to prevent the ribbon from unraveling.

2.     Squeeze a line of hot glue onto the barrette back, center the ribbon and press firmly in place.

3.     Arrange the googly eyes onto the barrette.  I chose a large on for the center and two smaller ones for each side of it.  Glue into place.
