DIY: Embellished Sunglasses

By Cinnamonspring @CinnaSpring

So I know that the right pair of sunglasses never fails to make one look good.

But do you know what makes one look even more awesome-er?

Embellished sunglasses. Like the amazing A-Morir embellished sunglasses below:

Yep. Okay, well it looks a little OTT (over-the-top) for an everyday look but still.very.fabulous.

It’s been a while that I have been wanting to DIY my own embellished sunglasses but my superglue always dries up (even when I follow instructions to avoid this) that whenever I plan to make something I can’t!

However, I finally got some a week or two back and hey, now I have embellished sunglasses! It’s really easy to do, it only took me 20 minutes to make this

:D
Here’s my easy tutorial:

DIY: Embellished Sunglasses

What you need:

  • Sunglasses, preferably one that has a wayfarer (like above) or a cat eye frame.
  • Superglue
  • Bead string in gold
  • Rhinestone string in gold
  • Gold tubes
  • Toothpicks
  • Scissors
  • Scrap paper (to place the glue on)

DIY: Embellished Sunglasses

Step 1:

Trace the bead string along the top of the frame. I decided to use a bead string because well, it was all I had at the time and it saves you the trouble of sticking beads one by one! Once you’ve traced the length of the frame, cut it. Do the same for the rhinestone string.

Step 2:

Pour a dab of superglue onto your scrap paper. Use a toothpick, dab it into the glue and slowly dab the glue onto the frame. Quickly stick the bead string onto the glue and hold it there to let the glue do its thing!

Step 3:

Follow the frame of the sunglasses, every curve!

Step 4:

Do the same for the string of rhinestones! Once you are done it should look like the above. You’re nearly done! If you like it subtle, then just leave it as it is to dry. I for one, wanted to end it properly so…

Step 5:

…stick on a gold tube or two below the embellishment! Now you’re done

:D

How simple and easy was that? I am loving my DIY embellished sunglasses – especially so in this hot, sunny weather!
