DIY Sunglasses with Glitter Temples

diy festive frames

Whether you’re dressed to the nines or sporting the ugliest sweater you can find, the holiday season (or as we like to call it — party season) presents the perfect opportunity to show off your personal style. That’s why this winter, we’ve challenged crafty DIY bloggers with the task of transforming our shades into holiday glasses that are 100% unique. Check back each week as we feature new frames or browse the entire batch of DIY-ed styles here.

Today’s sparkly stunners come from Coley of Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market.

I got the privilege to create a holiday look with a pair of cute sunnies from Sunglass Warehouse. I picked out these fun retro-looking glasses.

Adding glitter is such an easy way to add pop to something! Anyone can do it!

Materials

supplies

  1. Glasses: I used these
  2. Glitter: I used German glass glitter, but any will do. Gold would be super fun, too!
  3. Glue: I used gem glue from JoAnn’s

Step 1

Spread glue on the arms of the sunglasses. Be careful not to go past the curve in the arm — it might get scratchy behind your ear.

Step 2

Next, sprinkle your glitter over the glue. Repeat this step until all the glue is covered. If you have holes, just dab more glue and sprinkle glitter until the entire surface is covered.

Step 3

Take your finger and gently press down on the glitter to flatten it.

That’s it! Now you’re ready to strut your cute sunnies at all of your holiday brunches!
