Fright Lights

Give your Christmas lights a creepy second life with ping-pong eyeballs. 
 
How-To:
 
1. Cut out a selection of eye images from magazines, newspapers, or websites.
 
2. With a sharp knife (adults only), cut a T-shaped slit in each ball, then fold back the corners, creating a hole that will fit one light.
 
3. Glue an eye image onto each ping-pong ball, holding down edges as the glue dries.
 
4. Slip each ping-pong ball over a lightbulb and hang.
