DIY SUNGLASSES

Wednesday, 11 July 2012

Hello Creatures,

Yesterday, whilst browsing Company Magazine on the train, I came across a fantastic pair of A-Morir Floral Sunnies. It was love at first sight. 

Sadly, however, I lack the £255 required to own the beauties, so this morning I popped my DIY cap on and went mad...

Here was the result, modelled by the beautiful Fran. 

Isn't she just a peach?
If you, too, would like some crazy sunglasses, then you will need:

Cheap round sunglasses: £2.99
Superglue: £3.99
Fake Flowers: £4.39 (I picked mine up from a cake decoration shop, but arts-and-craft shops and haberdasheries are also a good bet. 

Total Cost: £11.37


Hints and Tips:

Apply the glue to the frame of the glasses, not the flowers, for better sticking power.

Don't put the sunglasses on before the glue dries... The superglue fumes will STING YOUR EYES.

Here's the finished result!


What do you think?

Mona.

  14. These rocked my face off. Almost literally. BUT I'm also 100% sure that they look better on you than on me. So, I'll admire from a distance. :)

  15. Gorgeous idea! You look amazing in them! (I cannot wear large round sunnies as they rather swallow my face, so very envious!)

  18. And yes, we have technically have no sun in December. But think about it... we are wearing summery clothes in this wintery weather. This makes me all the more determined to be summery in winter for the hell of it. Season swap! x x
