over last weekend i told a friend that i had some cool sunglasses that she could have. i felt bad giving her an old worn pair of plain, heart-shaped sunglasses so i decided to spruce them up a bit first.
materials i used: heart-shaped sunglasses, lots of glitter & sparkles, a thin sponge paint brush, adhesive, a paper plate [not shown], a credit card [not shown]
first, i grabbed the paper plate and happily poured as much glitter as my heart desired onto the surface.
next, i used that back end of the paint brush to stir the glitter all together.
then, i used the card to file all of the sparkles into one line.
okay, now you're ready to paint the adhesive smoothly onto the side of the glASSES [i would avoid glittering the frames because i would not want to ruin the lenses, but it's up to you!].
begin to dip your glasses into the glitter! [feel free to go crazy!]
after you apply sparkles to both sides, you're done!
this diy is so simple and minimally messy. you now have a pair of super-stylish, totally original shades to rock!
I wear many hats. I like to call myself a painter, a film maker, a photographer, a blogger, a sewer, a craft maker, a designer, an illustrator, and an inspirer. I do not know exactly what I want out of life yet, but I sure do know how to live it.
be inspired to be an original.
