How to make googly eyes for your plants…but why would you want to make googly eyes for your plants, I hear you ask?
Well, why not? It something really simple to do that looks fun. And plant eyes are a good Halloween decoration, if you decorate your house for Halloween a lot (or even if you just want some simple touches that won’t get glitter and glue everywhere).
Or it’s a decoration for any other time of the year too.
If you have a lot of plants – which I know loads of us do, as a post-lockdown hobby – then they will be a huge part of your house, so it makes sense to decorate them too.
It’s also really fun for children, as it’s simple to do and really easy for them to help out and get involved in.

- Add a black dot to the polystyrene ball with the black pen.
- Use different sizes / placements for the traditional googly eye ‘look.’
- Place your googly eye stick in your plants. We reckon they look best in pairs, but you could mix it up if you want.
