It is super easy to make eyeball picture frames!

What you need:

  • A Picture Frame (I used plain $1 wooden ones)
  • Black paint
  • paint brush
  • Tons of googly eyes (I got 4 variety packs from Michaels with tons of different sizes)
  • tacky glue
  • a halloween photo

How to make googly eye frames

Here’s how easy it was to make these eyeball frames!

STEP 1: Prep the frame

Paint the frame black. Make sure to paint the sides and the back to get a fully cohesive look.

STEP 2: Glue

After the paint dries, start glueing on eyes!

I started by placing the largest eyes around the frame and then filled in with smaller eyes.

Use tacky glue to attach them and press firmly in place.

Note: you COULD use hot glue but that would leave a lot of stringy bits. Tacky glue is plenty secure for this project and will leave you with cleaner results!

STEP 3: Add a picture

Let it dry really well and add your Halloween picture!

I decided to make 2 frames, one for each of the pictures of our pets in past Halloween costumes.
