Summer is here and it is hot!! I recently picked up one of those inflatable pools for my girls, so this past weekend we got outside and welcomed the heat. I invited my daughter’s friends over and they had a great time just hanging out playing in the sun. I put together a fun little craft for them so they could decorate their own sunglasses. I just might have made a pair or two for myself and I learned that bedazzling must run in the family because my daughter can bedazzle with the best of them.
This craft is pretty self-explanatory, you just embellish until your hearts content so I’ll just give you a few tips. I found the kids sunglass favors in a bulk pack on Amazon at a great price. The E6000 glue is a craft adhesive perfect for plastics and resin embellishments. You don’t want to get it on your clothes so I suggest the adults do the gluing but let the kids have fun making their own with some sticker rhinestones. I couldn’t find any embellishments I thought were appropriate for boys so I decided to use Washi tape instead. The tape comes in so many different patterns and styles you can find some really cool ones any little boy would love. I decorated the sides of the glasses for the boys using the tape and then trimmed up the sides using the X-acto knife.
