DIY Embellished Retro Sunglasses

We're loving the embellished sunglasses trend from the Spring/Summer runways.  These 3-D glasses give a generous nod to the cat's eye glasses from the 1950s and early 1960s.   They let you step out a little bit into Funky Town without taking up permanent residence.
 and



We wanted to put our own spin on it using rhinestones in settings.  I love the vintage vibe here.  The glasses are from Target and they cost us thirteen dollars, add the rhinestones and this look can easily be recreated for under $25.00.  That's a lot less pricey than the couture versions, which run upwards of $500.00!  The key is a great adhesive and Aleene's 7800 adhesive is incredibly strong and durable.  Miss Avalon and I worked together here after I craft failed her red jean shorts.  (Derp, sorry about that, Av.)  She took the pics and I made the projects and edited.  So this is one from Team Potter!
 
You will need:
Plastic sunglasses
Rhinestones in metal prong settings (we used navettes and baguettes)
Aleene's 7800 adhesive
Rhinestone applicator tool (or crayon)
Fine grit sandpaper or nail file
 Step one: Lightly sand the edge of your glasses.  Pick up your rhinestone using a wax tip applicator or crayon.  Step two: Gently swoop rhinestone back into glue. Step three: Press rhinestones on to surface of glasses.  You can straighten things out before the glue sets, but work quickly.  Step five: Baguettes are placed along the top edge of the glasses and navettes are placed in the center and on either side of the metal portion on the edge of glasses.  You can place a final navette in the space between the baguettes.  Check back through your stones to straighten them out.  Allow to dry for 24 hours.
 That's it!  Fun...fast...fabulous!  (Not to mention...affordable chic!)   Avalon and I are fighting over these, I'm afraid we'll have to whip up another pair!  
Would you DIY a pair of embellished retro sunglasses?  We'd love to see yours if you do!

Cheers,
Madge and Avalon

I like the concept of DIY Embellished Retro Sunglasses. Sunglasses are indeed an enormous fashion nowadays and it's good to see old classic fashion is taking place among our fashion choices within this modern era. I love the DIY sunglass project pretty much. Thanks.
