So, I saw this cool Halloween decoration on Pinterest. I thought I could make these glowing eyes. Supposedly, it was pretty interesting. The end result had me yelling "PinFail" - this website is one of my favorites to see how things turn out.
We planned on camping, so I thought it would a perfect craft to try out in the woods. Lots less ambient lighting, so it should be easier to see. Oh how I was wrong.
We took an empty paper towel holder. I cut out some eyes with an exacto knife. And then I took these glow bracelets that I got cheap at Michael's. They are great because they are like $1 for 16 bracelets. Unfortunately, they have about a 30% fail rate. So, once I got two working well, I taped them inside the paper towel roll. No luck. Couldn't see anything. It was lost in the dark - couldn't make out the eyes at all. I tried adjusting the angle and still had zero luck.
Night 2 - I attempted to close off the ends with duct tape and put five bracelets inside. Still no luck.
I am going to make one final attempt using a real glow stick (but I have to buy one first). Then, I will try cutting a glow stick open and pouring it inside the tube.
Maybe I will luck out. But honestly, it's a PinFail for me so far.
Anyone else have any luck? Any advice on what else I could try?
