Fruit-Embellished Sunnies

Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Sunnies and fruit go together like nobody's business during the summer, so I figured I may as well marry the two and call it a day. This project is beyond easy, and it's a great way to add some new life to your old sunglasses (I was just about to get rid of these ones!). And can we just talk about the snazzy Bel-Air I was lucky enough to snap a photo of these bad boys in last week? Amaze balls. This beauty of a car belongs to none other than The Pretty Secrets, and I somehow managed to get this shot while she was driving me home... magic.
But enough about that, on to the project!

SUPPLIES: SUNGLASSES | GLASS FRUIT BEADS | E-6000 GLUE
TIME: 5 MINUTES (+ 1 HOUR DRY TIME) | DIFFICULTY LEVEL: EASY 

This one is pretty much as easy as it gets — just glue your fruit beads onto your sunnies and give them some time to dry... After that, you're in business! Chiquita Banana's got nothing on you.

Sidenote: You might have to turn to Etsy to track down some interesting fruit beads, but I was lucky enough to source mine from a local bead store... You might get lucky and find something similar at a place like Michaels, but either way, it'll likely take some hunting!
