ALL EYES ON YOU

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside - DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY CHRIS ROY FOR THEGRAPHICSFAIRY.COM.

These float­ing felt eye­balls that Chris Roy cre­ated for The Graph­ics Fairy will make ev­ery­one want to take a closer look. Start with eight ready­made white felt balls, or fol­low the tu­to­rial on Thegraphicsfairy.com to make eight felt balls from wool roving. Se­lect colors of wool roving for each iris and pupil. For each eye­ball, place a small amount of the iris color on the ball and poke your felt­ing nee­dle up and down un­til the fibers felt to­gether. Add an even smaller amount of your pupil color on top of the iris and nee­dle felt into place. To dis­play your eye­balls, twist a length of flo­ral wire in half, and insert the sharp end into the eye­ball. Add a dab of glue if nec­es­sary. Poke eight tiny holes in a row on one side of a pa­per towel tube and insert the eye­ball stems into the holes. Ap­ply strips of tape around the base of the wires for sta­bil­ity. Hot glue moss over the card­board tube.
