DAY FIVE: DIY EYE PATCH
Every pirate needs an eye patch…or two…(so he can wear one as a necklace)…this is a super easy and frugal craft…
What you will need:
Foam sheets (one black & one white)
Ribbon, elastic or cord
Pen, glue, scissors, knife
Some of this project will need to be done by an adult….since it involves sharp objects and hot glue…
Trace or draw the shape of your patch with a pen on your foam and then cut out the shape (I found a 50 pack of foam sheets for $5.99 at Hobby Lobby less my 40% off coupon = $3.59…or you can purchase the sheets individually)
Next, on your white foam sheet draw your jolly roger design (I used a black sharpie) then cut out.
I then took a knife and made small slits in either side of the patch to thread my ribbon through (I had a velvet option and a rope option and the boys chose the rope. $.99 a spoil at Hobby Lobby)
I actually cut the back of the ribbon and tied it off to fit.
I then hot glued the eye patch…allow to dry and wah-la!
I also did a version out of card stock, duct tape, electrical tape, scotch tape (wow that is a lot of tape) and construction paper..I prefer the foam…but Liam liked both…
I also want to note here…and I am stating the obvious…but you don’t want to leave young children unsupervised around anything with a string…so Adult Supervision is always a must.
