Most girls like looking at jewellery, but what a lot of people don't know is jewellery really likes looking at you too...
It was my friend Lauren Confos's birthday over the weekend so I decided to make her something I thought she would like. I once saw her wear a dress with eyeballs on it, so, that was pretty much what I was going by. I mean, she HAS eyeballs, so surely she likes them...
And this was really fun to make, I also made matching hairclips to add to her collection of about 1000000 hairclips...
You will need:
Large teddy bear eyes
Brown, blue, green, yellow paints (or whatever colour you want the iris to be)
Hacksaw, or steak knife you don't mind blunting the shit out of - I went for the latter cause I'm badass
Flesh coloured material
Then paint it white, like an eyeball. It will need a few coats, so I sat there with a hairdryer and dried each layer to speed up the process. It helps to sip your wine while you blow dry the eyeball.
Grab your hacksaw - aka steak knife - (probably shouldn't have had all that wine before....) and saw off the back `spike bit' of the eye. Pretty sure that's the technical term..... It helps if you have plyers handy too. Then cut out two strips of the flesh material and fold a crease to form 'eyelids' and glue them down. Try not to glue your fingers together like I did because your skin WILL peel off and it WILL hurt like a bitch. Once it's dry you can glue it on to a ring or clips as so:
I made a few different coloured ones but here are the finished products... Stop....it's wine time!
