One of the reasons my grandkids love the studio is because it is a happy place......in fact it's kind of a rule. When they get a little snippy with each other I remind them Rowdy Grandma's studio is for laughing, creating and acting silly ...there's no crying in crafting!!!
A very favorite way of keeping a cheerful mood is to play music, and it is usually the oldies. The perfect tune for the Jeepers Peepers project is Jeepers Creepers by the Mills Brothers....we love it!!!
Lyndsey enjoying the music, and of course kids are crazy for glasses so she is modeling a pair of funky specs!!
Instead of making a pin from an eyeglass lens how about turning it into a necklace. Follow the instructions for the pin, the only difference is instead of adding a pin back twist a piece of wire into a figure 8 and use your heavy glue to attach it to the felt. When wire piece is dry add a leather or satin cord large enough to slip over the rowdies head.
A thin rim of white glue was applied around the rim of these specs and then sprinkled with glitter....when dry a photocopied picture of a peacock feather was glued to the lens.
If the you or the kids don't have the patience to wait for the glue to dry you may add the image to wet glue and glitter. Faith put her image on when wet and it spread the glitter onto more of the pin. It's beautiful.
Crumbled tree bark glued aroung the rim....a 2 part resin was poured onto the lens and the tree bark frame.
The frames of these Jeepers Peepers were soldered.
