If you keep a look out, you can find a face in just about any ordinary object—even in something as innocuous as a trash can. There are people obsessed with finding these special, uniquely-expressive spots and humanizing them with a set of eyes. Before, they were alone in these silly sorts of quests, but now the Googly Eyes Foundation is here to help.

“We are a non​profit​ organization ​whose goal is to spread googly eyes around the world,” Gustavo Bonzanini, a Googly Eyes Foundation representative, tells us in an email. “Currently, ​the Googly Eye Movement is being brought to life by various members in 3 different continents.” They’ve recently launched their digital platform where you can ask and receive sets of them for free. Once you have your package, have a ball putting googly eyes on things.

The results are as delightful as they are amusing. Bulgaria-based Vanyu Krastev (aka Eyebombing Bulgaria) is one member of the Googly Eyes Foundation who has adorned oddly-shaped trees and cracks in the sidewalk with the goofy craft material. To create this charming googly eye art, he searches for imperfections everywhere. Once he’s left his mark, they come alive with facial expressions that’ll make you smile.

Be sure to get your set of googly eyes here.

The Googly Eyes Foundation is making it easy for you to put googly eyes on things. They are offering free sets for people around the world.
