WhatIWore:  Looking for a cheap and easy way to update your sunglasses?  Here’s a quick DIY on my striped shades.

Supplies:

  • Sunglasses (white or light frames)
  • Tissue Paper
  • Glue
  • Sponge Brush
  • Clear Nail Polish

To start I had my dad help me remove the black bow on the corner of the shades.  There is a little mark left over, but it doesn’t bother me!

Next I cut a strip of tissue long and wide enough to fully cover the side band.  Using some watered down glue and the sponge brush, I delicately applied the tissue.  Mega patience is necessary here! Once tissue is applied, gently smooth out. 

Once the entire band is covered, I let the glue set up before trimming excess tissue.

Next I clipped around the curves of the side band, much like you’d trim a curve when you’re sewing.

Now glue excess to inner side of side band, slowly and carefully.  Everything should wrap around smoothly.

Finally, once the tissue paper is dry, I coated the side bands with a layer of clear nail polish.

The entire project cost under $20 (I picked everything up from Target) and under an hour to complete!
