Flower-embellished frames for spring that look cute all year 'round!
Spring is a feeling, babes, and spring DIY brings those warm, fresh vibes to your look whenever you want them. Last year during festival season, flower frames appeared in places like Urban Outfitters and on Nasty Gal, inspiring me to whip up a pair for myself. I ordered up some pastel floral cabachons and whipped out my tacky glue. The result? My favorite new accessory! Instructions below.

  • How to make a pair of sunglasses. Pastel Flower Frames - Step 1
    Step 1

    Kind of a pre-step, but important. When selecting your glasses, be sure you actually like the way they fit on your face. It’s easy to grab cheap frames and glue stuff on them, but if you want to enjoy them, try a bunch on until you find a pair you adore.

    Hold your frames carefully in one hand while squeezing the tacky glue onto the frame, careful not to spill it over on the lens. Do this in small sections, because the glue dries quickly.

    Firmly press your floral cabachons down over the glue. They should stick right away as the glue begins to turn to a rubbery texture. If you can still move them around a lot, add more glue and try again.

    Repeat all the way around one side, and let dry. Yes, I know you’re excited, but you have a high chance of ruining your frames if you don’t wait! You’ll probably have to handle the DIY’d side at some point while finishing the second side.

    Repeat the process on the second side, and let dry thoroughly (I recommend overnight, but you can wear them in a couple of hours if you absolutely must show them off like, tonight).

    You can fold the frames and lay them down if you see any of the cabachons sliding downward during the drying process.
