By Meream

DIY sunnies are craft projects that will help you give old pairs of sunglasses a makeover. These DIY sunnies are fantastic projects for the summer. Aside from being season-appropriate, they are incredibly easy and fun to do, as well. I suggest that you get together with your favorite girl friends and make an afternoon of it. Enjoy!

1 D&G-Inspired

D&G-InspiredThere were sunnies like these worn by models during the D&G A/W show. To make your own, you will need an old pair of sunnies, tiny decorative flowers, and super glue. Design variation: use different-colored flowers. You can also decorate the entire frames.

You can even paint the sides as well. I bet this idea will be extra fab if you pick colored glasses with complementing dots.
