DIY Embellished Gem Sunglasses

Embellished sunglasses have been taking the fashion world by storm for a while now, and I, for one, love a little quirk or funk on my sunglasses! Perfect for summertime, perfect for those living on the equator. This is my second tutorial on embellished sunglasses, you can read the first one here!

Read on my simple tutorial which you can do in less than 15 minutes. This is my own variation, feel free to try your own!

What you need:

– A pair of sunglasses (I bought my mirror sunglasses from Forever 21)
– Various shaped rhinestones (with settings)
– E6000 glue
– toothpick (optional)

Step #1:

Make sure you are in a well ventilated area as you want to avoid inhaling the E6000 fumes! Dab some glue on the back of the rhinestones.

Step #2:

I started with a teadrop rhinestone and stuck it in the middle of the sunglasses. This is to ensure symmetry.

Step #3:

I then dabbed glue on the backs of 2 oval shaped purple rhinestones, and placed it next to the teardrop rhinestone in the middle.

Step #4:

I then filled the gaps with smaller rhinestones.

Step #5:

Then place the small oval rhinestones along the top rim of the sunglasses.

Step #6:

Then to add some pizzaz, I placed two different coloured rhinestones at each end to frame it nicely. Let the glue set for 24 hours and you’re done!

Voila! Rock your embellished sunglasses out x
