DIY Halloween decorations are half of the fun of the holiday. Kids and adults alike exercise their creative muscle to compete for the glory of having the spookiest, wackiest props and ornaments on the block.
This DIY pom pom project can be either adorable or downright scary, depending on how you use the finished product. Using yarn, scissors and cardboard, ambitious makers can craft their own big, fluffy cartoon eyeballs. The eyeball pom poms can then be used to make friendly Halloween creatures. Just perch them on top of a pumpkin or glue them to a construction paper bat or spider. For those who prefer creepier DIY Halloween decorations, they can be strung together to form garlands and streamers of disembodied cartoon eyeballs -- like Michael Myers meets Sesame Street.
