  • Any frame (old or new) with glass intact

  • Spray adhesive

  • Glitter in desired color for frame (Martha used black)

  • Fine-tipped bottle of craft glue

  • Black glitter

  • Glow-in-the-dark glitter

  • Silver mylar


  1. With glass removed, coat entire frame with spray adhesive and cover with desired glitter color.

  2. Download and print eye template, scaling to desired size. Place template under the frame glass. Trace eye shape onto top of glass with a fine-tipped bottle of craft glue. Sprinkle with black glitter and let dry for a few hours.

  3. When dry, turn glass over, and fill in area that is considered the white of the eye with the craft glue. Cover with glow-in-the-dark glitter and let dry.

  4. To create the "mirror," cut a piece of mylar to the size of the backing board. Adhere to backing board with spray adhesive.

  5. Insert glass, black glitter side facing out, and mirror into frame. Secure pieces in place, and hang.
