Gather all the materials needed for this Halloween DIY Craft:
• egg carton
• acrylic paints (white, red and black)
• paintbrush (included in the paint set link above)
• 2 pcs. black pipe cleaner
• a crafting awl hole tool
• hot glue gun with glue sticks
• a pair of scissors
Cut two pieces of egg well from the egg box. Make sure to cut the edges at the widest portion of it. This will serve as the eyeball of the glasses.
Paint the egg well with white acrylic paint. Do a double coating if necessary. Let it dry for an hour.
Paint the narrowest tip of the egg well with black acrylic paint. This should resemble as the pupil of the eyeball. Let it dry for an hour.
Paint small veins on the body of the eyeball using red acrylic paint. This will make a distressed-look on the eyeball. Make random irregular lines around the white body of the eyeball.
Wrap the black pipe cleaner on the edge of the widest part of the eyeball. Generously glue the pipe cleaner around to permanently stick it.
Create at least 2 centimeters curve on the free end of the pipe cleaner immediate to the eyeball. This will serve as the bridge of the eyeglass. The length of the bridge would depend on how long the distance is in between your eyes. This would vary if the one using will be a kid or an adult. Just make a smart approximate of the user’s dimensions.

Get the other eyeball and wrap the remaining pipe cleaner around the widest edge of the eyeball. Hot glue the edges to permanently stick it to the sides.
Fold the other black pipe cleaner into two equal parts and cut it using a pair of scissors.
Generously glue both pipe cleaners on each end of the eyeglass. This will serve as the temple of the glasses. The temples should be parallel on each side to assure the quality of it.
Check if the temples are properly placed and is not falling off. You can add more hot glue to make it sturdier.
Curve the free ends of the temple. This will be used to hook the glasses on your ears. Make adjustments based on your own measurements or the user’s measurements.
Poke a hole in the middle of the pupil using a crafting awl hole tool. The size of the hole would depend on your liking. Make sure that the user can see clearly through the holes on the eyeball.
