Get Crafty - DIY designer sunglasses


There is a new set of sunglasses out by a-morir.
The price of these flower rimmed shades will set you back between $250-$400. 

 
 There is still a way to get some trendy flowered glasses without breaking the bank if you have a few bucks, an old pair of shades, and some strong glue.
 The flowers on this set look porcelain. While pretty, that may chip and break easier than another material. Plastic would be much more durable. A quick search on a popular online marketplace (etsy) for pastel resin  flower cabochons brings up quite a few options! I'd suggest using a thick rimmed pair of glasses so you have more surface area to work with and can fit more flowers. 
If you live in a cool enough climate, you may be able to get away with using a hot glue gun to secure your blossoms, but if your summer gets hot, you probably want to pick up a tube of E6000 or something similar.

Go crazy! There are many different types of flowers in so many colors, you aren't limited to the purple/pink/blue combo, or the boring black ones that amorir sells. (lets face it, the black ones just wouldn't be worth it!). Try out roses, daisies, lotus, or one of the many other options.

I'd love to see what you can come up with.

  1. Thank you for such an informative blog, I have recently been searching for details about this and yours is the best I have located so far. In summers, besides all the other accessories sunglasses are certainly the favourite of all. An addition to your attire that would not only help to shield your eyes from the immense heat but would also make a style statement for you while visiting a public place is surely worth spending a few bucks on. Designer Sunglasses have a feel good factor for the person who buys them. Brand value associated with them infuses a level of confidence into the person who wears them. The quality and brand recognition makes designer sunglasses an attractive option for the customer to buy. Sunglasses are now accessories that no fashion enthusiast can do without. No one amongst us leaves our house without our favourite pair of sunglasses- be it for the reason that to protect our eyes or for the simple fact of wearing them to look glamorous.
