It’s Halloween Craft Month here on My Poppet MAKES, so I thought I’d kick off this month of spooky crafting with a fun and practical Eyeball Keychain.

Made from wooden beads and a few other inexpensive crafting supplies, these slightly disturbing (but amusing) keychains make the perfect Halloween craft activity.

Trick-or-treaters won’t give you the ‘evil eye’ if you decide to hand out eyeballs instead of candy or plastic toys this year.

This craft project is an easy Halloween craft idea for kids or teens to make with minimal supervision.

Get the whole family involved with this gruesome craft activity. My kiddo thought the eyeballs were hilarious!

If you aren’t really into carrying dismembered body parts around in you handbag, just omit the eye design and decorate your wooden beads as you see fit.

I’ve used paint pens to draw on the wooden beads and add the designs. But if you don’t have paint pens available, ordinary acrylic paint and coloured markers will do the job just as well. Just remember to make sure the paint is fully dried before adding your eyeball design.

1. Slide the wooden beads onto a paintbrush handle and paint white, either with a paint pen or white paint. Allow to dry thoroughly.

Handy tip: Using the handle of a thin paintbrush to inserted into the hole of the bead, helps make the bead easy to decorate, ensuring it doesn’t roll around while painting.
