Summer Glasses


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.

About Jamie

Hi! My name is Jamie with Five Whimsy Lane and I like to make things pretty. Parties especially. Glitter enthusiast...lover of all things chocolate & a partynista. Is that a word? Wifey to one fabulous husband and mother to 3 amazing children, Caleb, Leilani & Olivia who are my main inspiration. What more could a girl ask for? When I'm not scouring Pinterest for hours (I'm working honey, I promise) you can find me digging in my fairy garden, dancing with the kids or cleaning my Dyson. Who wants a dirty vacuum? My love for parties began over 10 years ago when I was planning my sons 1st birthday. I realized I had a huge passion for details (some might call it an obsession). After many years and wonderful birthday memories later Sweet Jelly Parties was born. Children's events and baby showers are our specialty but I'm a lover of all reasons to celebrate. Anniversaries, holidays, graduations, it's a Friday so let's throw a party.....You name it, I'll glitter it. Every once in a while though I like to trade in my juice box for a glass of wine which is why I'm also a Certified Wedding Planner.
