Now take white cohesive bandage and wrap it around the black wood piece in an irregular manner but leave some blank space in the middle like a rhombus shape and attach 2 big eyeball sticker at the suitable distance on the blank space. Now insert the rod in the bottom hole of the wooden block and attach the white piece at the middle of the rod and its finish. Stand the rod in your yard to welcome Halloween.
