Ever since I made the ping pong ball LED lights a few months back I’ve been planning on making a spooky eyeball version for Halloween. It’s made with LED lights so it’s safe (they don’t get hot) and it makes things super creepy, day or night.

1. Cut an X in each ping pong ball with an exact-o knife. You want the X to be pretty small. The LED light should have to struggle a second to pop in (so it won’t pop right out).
2. With a hot glue gun, glue one eye ball (or more!) onto each ping pong ball. Glue it 90 degrees from where you X is so when it hangs it will be facing you and not the ground.
3. Pop your LED lights in. I bought a strand on Amazon for $6.99.
That’s it! Super easy!
Here’s a spooky night shot:
