  • hot glue gun


  • 12 lime green plastic cups (9 ounce cups)
  • 36 googly eyes (12mm eyes)


  • Heat up your glue gun if using.
  • Decide how high or low on each cup you want to place the eyes.
  • Glue three eyes, all in a row and touching, at the level you want them on each cup. Do this by squeezing a very small amount of hot glue onto the cup where you want each eye and then firmly press the eye onto the glue until it stays in place, which should take just a second. Repeat with the other two eyes.
  • Repeat on all cups.
  • Once the glue is dry, you can stack the cups inside of each other.


You can use larger or smaller cups or eyes, however the ratio of eye-to-cup size will change.
You need three eyes per cup.
Get the lime green paper cups here!  Or plastic cups here! (The plastic cups are larger at 12 ounces, so you will want to increase your eye size to 15 or 18 mm).

If you buy self-adhesive eyes, you may not need the hot glue gun.  Just check to make sure the eyes are secure with the self adhesive and do not easily fall off.
