Bling up your summer and make a fashion statement with these "word up" sunglasses
needle nose pliers
tiny charms, pearls, beads, or whatever you have on hand
hot glue gun
Determine what you would like your sunglasses to say. Choose and arrange your beads. Begin with about 4 inches of thin wire.
Fold over one end of the wire with your needle nose pliers.
Thread your small letter beads onto the wire to spell your message.
Trim the wire and fold over the other end so it locks the beads into place.
Glue your statements onto your sunglasses.
Next, you can add whatever jewels and beads you might have. I am starting by glueing some plastic jewels onto the middle or my glasses. This also helps to cover any exposed wire from the letters.
I also have some small charms which I am using and some fabulous stick on jewels. Again, use whatever you like or have to create a fabulous fashion statement.
