DIY: Embellished Sunnies

We’ve been seeing a lot of embellished sunglasses all over the place, usually with flowers (like this one, over at The Student Wardrobe). Today we’re bringing you our own version of the trend, using jewelry!

MATERIALS

Sunglasses
Earrings
Chain necklace
Glue gun & glue
Wire cutter/good scissors

HOW TO

Oh, the endless possibilities we can accomplish with a $4 glue gun! This is so easy: just remove the earring backs with a wire cutter, then glue the earrings in place! We really liked how the necklace chain wrapped around the lenses, too. Just glue along the edge and work the chain around, then where the chain ends we added each earring. Have fun with the placement; we did on the top corners, on the side, and the bottom. Be sure and clean off the little glue strings that inevitably get on the lenses.

Tips:

If you decide to put your earrings on the side, make sure you can open and close your sunglasses when you decide your placement.
Unfortunately, Jessi and I both experienced the casualty of these glasses when we threw them in our purses. The earrings popped off pretty easily, so make sure to handle with care!
