DIY: Felt Eyeball Planters

Written by Sharon Garofalow of  Cupcakes and Cutlery

I’ve never been a fan of Halloween. I don’t like scary things and would rather ignore it all and move on to the other fall and winter holidays. My kids, however, love Halloween. So I compromise by decorating with things that are cute and just a little creepy. This eyeball planter is super easy to make and perfect for our Halloween décor. You don’t even need to worry about keeping your plant alive—this is the only time of year when dead plants fit right in, which is good news for anyone (like me!) without a green thumb.

Click through to learn how to make this easy eyeball-embellished planter

• Colored felt (You’ll need white and black, plus whatever other color you want use to accent the eyeball.)
• Plant pot (mine came black but you can use any color)
• Scissors
• Glue (I like hot glue because it dries fast; just be careful not to use too much or it will bleed through the felt. Regular craft glue will also work.)


1. Cut out shapes to create layered eyeballs. Each eyeball is made up of three layers: the almond shape in white, a colored circle, and a smaller black circle for the pupil. Cut as many as you need for your design; you can make just one large one for the front or several smaller ones.

2. Glue the eyeball layers together.

3. Glue the felt eyeballs on to the planter.

4. Fill your eyeball planter with a plant or flowers.

To make it even creepier, use a red pen to draw lines to create bloodshot eyes! Happy Halloween everyone!
