Glue glass eyes to the hobby horse with a hot glue gun.
Cut out two crescents for each eye from felt. Choose a felt colour that matches your horses coat.
Glue on the crescents as eyelids above and below the eyes.
Stitch the eyelids around the eyes so that they rest securely against your horses coat.
Last, attach lashes along the top lids as a finishing touch.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul and indeed, the eyes can really show your hobby horse's personality. That's why we spend a little extra time making eyes for our hobby horses. Glass eyes as a base make it easy. The trick here is felt eyelids - you can adjust the size and shape based on how open you want the eyes to be. Try as you go and see what works best for your horse. We recommend using a hot glue gun, but bear in mind that the glue gun tip gets very hot.
