I Love to Create – Future is so Bright, I Gotta Wear Crafty Shades

After last week’s summer inspired straw fedora make over it seemed only appropriate to keep up the beachy theme with some revamped sunglasses. Since I Love to Create and as it happens I have the mother load of sunglasses, I tried out several different options.

Petroleum Jelly
Paint Brush
Drop Cloth

Apply petroleum jelly to the lenses of your sunglasses. Place your glasses on a large drop cloth. Fill your brush with paint and flick at your glasses to create splatter effect. Allow paint to dry completely and use tissue paper to wipe jelly off of lenses.

This is a fun pair of sunglasses I made drilling small holes in the frame and wire wrapping with trinkets!

Collage Pauge Instant Decoupage Medium
Hole Punch
Colorful Paper

Use a hole punch to make small dots of colorful paper. Remember hole punches come in more shapes than just circles these days. Use Collage Pauge to adhere your dots to the sunglasses frame. Allow to dry and wear.

It’s amazing how much cuter all these sunglasses look after a quick and easy craft make over.

Liquid Fusion Glue

Using Liquid Fusion Glue adhere anything your little heart desires to a pair of sunglasses! I see rhinestones in the very near future.

You could wear those plain black sunglasses again this summer or you could make a custom pair to match every sundress in your closet. I know which option I’m working towards.

    I love the black and white glasses with ice cream cone accents. They look so awesome 🙂 Do the beads stay on well? I've never used Liquid Fuse before.

    I'm drooling over the ones with orange rims! What can you tell me about those, I must have my own! Or maybe those are for sale?
