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 winter wonderland shades come from Suzy of Suzy’s Artsy-Craftsy Sitcom.

  1. Begin by painting the frame of your sunglasses white. It may take two coats of paint. (Looking for an already-white pair? Find them here.)
  2. Cut a small piece of foam board the length of the front of the glasses by about 1/2″ wide. Trim to make snow drifts and a “nose piece” to fit onto the glasses. Hot glue in place.
  3. Hot glue individual mini snowmen across the top.
  4. Trim a few small “trees” from the greenery and hot glue in place.
  5. Use white puff paint to cover the front of the foam board and along the edges, where it meets the glasses frame.
  6. Sprinkle glitter over the puff paint before it dries. Allow to dry about an hour.
  7. The final touch is to add the peppermint stripes on the frames with red acrylic paint.
