Eye Love You Halloween Gift

Eye Love You Halloween Gift - A Tried & True Project The following is a sponsored post with Monsters University and Blueprint Social.

The pumpkins are carved, the costumes are close to done and soon it’ll be All Hallow’s Eve! The only thing left to do is figure out what we’re actually doing on Halloween. I’m thinking we’ll do some quick trick-or-treating with just a few neighbors and then home to snuggle up with some hot chocolate while watching “Monsters University.” Lucky for us, The Monsters University Blu-ray Combo Pack comes out today! Eye Love You Halloween Gift - A Sugar Free Gift!

Since the entire day will be filled with sugary treats, I thought it would be nice to give the boys a little Halloween gift that won’t make me worry about future dental bills!  How cute is this little Mike Wazowski Pom Pom?! You could make it into a necklace or have them hang it off their backpack. How ever they decide to display little Mikey, your kids and your dentist will love it! :D

Eye Love You Halloween Pom Pom Gift

Materials:
Pom Pom Maker
Yarn (black, dark green, white, lime green)
Free “Eye Love You” Printable Label

Instructions:

Eye Love You Halloween Gift - Cover with Twine 1. Open one side of the pom pom maker and follow the steps in the picture above to make eye.

Eye Love You Halloween Gift - Cut Down Middle 2. Once both sides are wrapped in yarn, close pom pom maker and carefully cut through the middle with a pair of sharp scissors.

Eye Love You Halloween Gift - Tie Off 3.  Use a piece of twine tied in a knot to secure the middle.

Eye Love You Halloween Gift - Remove From Tool 4. Remove pom pom from maker. Doesn’t really look like Mike Wazowski yet but it soon will!

Eye Love You Halloween Gift - Trim Excess 5. Begin trimming and trimming…and more trimming. The closer you get to the center of the pom pom the more detail you’ll see. I’m about halfway done with trimming in the picture above.

Eye Love You Halloween Gift - Add Hanging String 6. Once you’re happy with the pom pom, use a large needle to thread a piece of baker’s twine under and through the existing string. Tie a knot at the end of the baker’s twin and voila!

Eye Love You Halloween Gift - Ready to Gift! Tape in place on the Free “Eye Love You” Printable and you’re good to go! I know my boys are going to be so excited about watching Monsters University and getting their very own little Mike Wazowski Pom Poms that they won’t even realize that their parents sneaked away to raid their candy bags!
