You need to make an eyelid and stick them to that.

I cut my eyelashes to the shape I want then use Super glue to fix them to the back of my eye, before they are inserted into the socket.  It gives a lovely wide-eyed look.

Super glue will work the wonders, try other brand of super glue, maybe it will work.

I always needle felt an eyelid and push the mohair lashes up under then carefully glue it with felt glue, since you felted the eyelid the glue holds very well and if it gets on the glass eye it will wash off with a damp cotton swab.  (super glue will sometimes cloud the glass eye where ever it touches) from experience I speaketh!!!  This is how I do it, there are pics on my face book page cherylsbears on facebook. bear_thumb
