Hundreds of Demon Eyes

A simple string of miniature Christmas lights and some 35mm film canisters combine to make a pretty convincing demon invasion in your hedges.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 string of miniature Christmas lights. All red is preferred, all white is OK. Blinkers work best.
  • 1 35mm film canister for each bulb on the string
  • 1 piece of white poster board
  • Frosted Scotch tape
  • Red permanent marker if you’re using white bulbs
  • A drill
  • A 3/16 inch drill bit
  • An X-Acto Knife

Here’s what you do:
• With the film canister facing you, top side pointing up towards the ceiling, drill 2 holes into the “face” of the canister, about ½” apart.

• Cut a small piece of poster board the same height as the inside of the canister, and slightly longer than the inside circumference of the canister.

• Roll the poster board loosely into a tube shape and insert inside the canister. Let it expand.

• Snap the top on to the canister and use the knife to carefully cut a small “X” through the top center of the canister.

• Pop a light from the string down through the “X”. Pull back up slightly to lock the bulb in place. Repeat for the remaining canisters.

• Place a small piece of tape over each “eye” hole that you drilled previously.

• If you are using white lights then put a dot of red marker on the tape that’s covering the eye hole.

• String the lights where desired and plug them in.
