Create Eyes 

Trace around the outside of different sized plates to create multiple eyes (Image 1). Cut out all the circles, then layer multiple sizes and colors of circles with double-sided tape to create a variety of eyes for your monster (Images 2-3).

Attach to Door

Using the double-sided tape, attach the finished eyes to the door (Image 1). Use scissors to cut the faux fur sheet into eyebrows and attach with tape (Image 2).
