- Sunglass (I got all of these in the Target Dollar Spot, $1 for the kiddo shades, $3 for the adult sunnies)
1) Lay the temple of your sunglasses on the back of your sheet of Gemz.
2) Trace the shape.
3) Cut out the blingy temple cover.
4) Remove plastic backing on the gemz and stick on to temple of your sunnies.
That's it!!! You can use this exact same method on a cheap plastic headband for a matching accessorie to go with your new shades, too!
If blinging the sides of your sunnies isn't for you then adding a row of Bling on a Row to some fun retro shades might be for you. The Bling on a Roll (love the name), which I used for the fronts of all the glasses) comes in a bunch of difference widths, but since it's all on a mesh you can just cut it into the width you want anyway. It glues on easily with hot glue or E6000.
Simply run a bead of E6000 across the top of your glasses and press the strand of bling into place. The E6000 doesn't set immediately so you have time to shift things around to get them just how you want them.
And, once again I couldn't help myself but to use this same method to make a matching headband.
So $2 worth of Dollar Spot shade, a roll of Bling on a Roll, and 1 sheet of Gemz and you're ready for the most stylish summer of your life!
If you don't want your kids to have all the fun (or if your kids are older than mine) you can also make a bow out of your Bling on a Roll and use a little hot glue to affix it to your sunglasses for a little over the top blinged out action!
Our summer is definitely looking brighter and blingier!
