Cuz real ones are expensive!
Well I saw the real ones in a mag, and i thought, "I NEED THOSE". So I was inspired to make them.

  • Step 1

    Ok first of all , I dont lnow if the sparay adhesive will work. You will have to try it.

    First: Go get clear lensed sunglasses, or you could use lightly tinted ones...

  • Step 2

    Second: Have some lace. I would prefer black, but if you can't find clear lensed ones, use black lenses with white lace or pink or whatev. The lace should be wider than your glasses. Trace out the shape of the lenses on the lace and cut out.

  • Step 3

    Third: Well, I would put some spray adhesive on like a q-tip or something and smear it around; or you could put tape around the frames and spray the lenses. Then stick and center the lace on the lenses, and let dry!!! ALL DONE!!! And then people will think your rich when your really broke!!! YAY!!

You ladies could try popping out the lenses and stretching the lace around em and popping them back in with a little glue. Trimming the excess from the inside with cuticle scissors would get you a close cut. It may be a tight fit, so perhaps sanding down the edge of the lens a smidge? I'd try it out on some dollar tree or good will glasses first before attempting on your favorite frames... Good luck!

Aren't projects supposed to be ACTUAL projects not just ideas?

an easier way would probably get a pair of blk lensed sunglasses, put lace over the lens' and frames, then spray paint over the lace and remove. If you dont mind haveing the fabric on, of coarse

What about lensless spectacles?No problem about blurred vision then.
Just have to make sure the lace is stretched tight before glueing onto frames...
