Step 1

Carefully carve a small hole in the ornament in order to recess the eye a bit. Hint: Use eyes in opposite ends of the ornament so that it stays balanced when it hangs! I’m using one for this particular ornament.

Step 2

Glue eye into the recessed hole of your ornament

Step 3

Using a mix of 1/2 water and 1/2 school glue, start “corpsing” the ornament. Use a paintbrush and paint the mix onto the ornament and then lay a layer of toilet paper on top (easier to see in the video). Using the wet toilet paper, make wrinkles and other features on the ornament. Let dry between layers of “toilet paper mache”.

Step 4

Using the toilet paper and water/glue mix create eyelids for the eye. Hint: You could sandwich a layer of hairs between another layer of toilet paper to create eyelashes.

Step 5

Once fully corpsed, paint the whole ornament (except the eyeball) with a dark color. I’m using black exterior latex paint. Let dry.

Step 6

Start drybrushing coats of lighter paint letting dry between coats.

Step 7

If the colors are too lively, make a glaze out of a tablespoon of Mod Podge and a drop of red food color and a drop of green color. This should create a brownish stain. Coat the ornament and let dry, this will age and “grunge” your ornament.

Step 8

Using a piece of burlap string, or hemp string, replace the shiny ornament string. Stain this burlap with fake blood or some red paint. Also, add some clear nail polish to the eyeball to make it look wet and shiny.
