Acrylic blues for the background. For the wording, I printed it out on regular copy paper, cut each word out, modge podged it down and sharpied the lines around the boxes.

So here's what it says:
When you get what you want in your struggle for self, and the world makes you king for the day, just go to the mirror and look at yourself and see what the man has to say. For it isn't your father or mother or wife who's judgement upon you must pass. The fellow who's verdict counts most in your life is the one staring back from the glass. You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum and think you're a wonderful guy, but the man in the glass says your only a bum if you can't look him straight in the eye.
Craftwood 1" balls with 1/2" holes - from Joann's
Acrylic paint: red, two coats
Acrylic paint: white, five good-size spots around the ball
(Two coats on those too)
Half inch dowel, cut into into inch and a quarter pieces and painted white
Push the dowels up into the hole in the balls
...and stop laughing perv...
Using a teeny tiny drill, do some surgery to pre-drill holes for the hooks
Twist the hooks into your pre-drilled hole
Using sharpies or black acrylic paint, put little eyes on each one
Hang with ribbon and give to your favorite nerds for their Christmas tree!
