Floral Print Sunglasses

Information about this project

Difficulty: Beginner

Rating:

This is a quick fun project to get a festival look without busting the budget.  Liven up an old pair of sunglasses or give a cheap pair an individual look.....have fun.

Step 1

Choose a pair of sunglasses to modify. In particular "Rayban" style glasses work well. I would aim for something with thick arms

Step 2

Line up your ribbon with the very end of the glasses arm (ear end, on the inside) and use a small amount of glue to secure it.

Step 3

Wrap the ribbon around the arm ensuring that there are no gaps.

Step 4

When the arm is covered use a small amount of glue to secure the loose end of the ribbon (aim for the inside of the arm for the best finish).

Step 5

Repeat the process with the second arm.

Step 6

Put a small amount of glue on the inside of the bridge of the sunglass, attached the ribbon and wrap it around, trim and secure with more glue.

Step 7

To finish the look I have added Swarovski pearls to the arms. While it is easy to stitch them on, I went for the even easier option of glueing them in place. Remember when adding embellishments leave the area around the ear clear as it would be really uncomfortable.

Step 8

When the glue has dried go out into the great Britsh summer and enjoy the sunshine (if it arrives)
