I recently saw a Diy blog post on embellished sunglasses ( I forgot to bookmark & don't know whos blog it was, *Cries*)& thought I would give it a go!
Off Pinterest I gathered some images for inspiration...
& off I headed to my crafty room to find the following.
You will need:
Beads, gems, jewelry parts, diamonds, buttons. Anything decorative to embellish your glasses.
Preferably a glue gun. I used PVA as my glue gun has gone walk abouts ;( But use your glue gun if you have one.
Stating the obvious, the glue gets sticky so lets just say its easier to apply your decorations with these babies.
I used two pairs of boring sunnies that I picked up from Primark for £2 each. I used these as they were kind of dull, not my style & have been sat on my dresser, neglected, for far too long.
My Embellishments are a mix of beads & diamonds cut up from old necklaces & bracelets over the years. I seriously don't throw anything away, I'm a secret hoarder!
My £2 glasses
These are another pair of "Wayfarer" style glasses also £2 from Primark. I wanted to try some stuff on the sides.
& the finished results...
I have had these winged earrings for ages. I bought them in a sale in Topshop ages ago & have never worn them & didn't really plan to so I thought they would look good on the sides of these black glasses. Black & gold always look good ;)
Actually quite like them! As silly as it sounds I won't really wear them as these shapes really don't suit me but I will every now & then.
Just a tip: these are so much faster & easier to make if you have a glue gun so don't opt for glue if you have one.
What do you think?
