WhatIWore: This is a guest post by my intern Val. She had all of the supplies on hand for a quick, easy and free DIY! Take it away, Val!
If you’re anything like me, you probably have more than enough pairs of sunglasses, with most of them being pretty similar. This is an easy way to upcycle a pair of sunglasses that is either a little more worn than you would like or just plain boring.
- Mod Podge
- Painter’s Tape
Begin by taping off all areas you don’t want to be painted. I liked the idea of covering only the top half, but you could do the whole frame or even a geometric pattern.
Next, mix your glitter with mod podge. I like very fine glitter for this project because the chunkier glitter looks too “arts and crafts” in this case. You should add glitter until the mod podge is saturated. Then go ahead and apply. Wait until it’s dry and then repeat until desired coverage is reached. I only used three coats, but it may be different for different colors and types of glitter.
This is a great way to take a pair of basic cheap sunglasses and turn them into something fun! I absolutely love my pair of retro glamour inspired shades. There are a lot of variations you can use such as, glitter placement, the color(s), and the amount used. Have fun!
