DIY oversize Black Round Frames Sunglasses with Rhinestones…

What is essential in the summer? Of course, sunglasses. I DIY a few pairs of sunglasses I do not 

wear very often and made them super-wearable by adding a little BLING! And I turned my boring

 old sunglasses into unique, one-of-a-kind gems that I like. I used a combination of gems, pearls, 

buttons, as well as some vintage clip-on earrings, and mesh from a vintage bag, left-over from this

 DIY. Anyway, let us get to it, shall we?

Here are what you will need:

* A pair of sunglasses 
* Gemstones, pearls, crystals, buttons, vintage earrings, rhinestones, bling trim… etc.
* E6000 glue–to assure your stones never fall off.

* Q-tips or toothpicks
* Beading pliers and/or nail tweezers (helpful & necessary if adding one small gem at a time)
* Paper or cardboard for your glue


* Find your old sunglasses and clean them.

* Determine what look you are going for and gather your stones and gems for the design in a 

similar or not so similar color scheme.

* Set out your stones or jewels on the table in a similar pattern before gluing them onto your 

shades to get an idea how you want it to look first.

NOTE: I pulled lots of different items in similar colors for the sunglasses I wanted to design, but 

some of the stuff did not make the cut. You can see in a few photos below where I had a general 

direction but was not sure exactly how I was going to execute it.

Sometimes less is more… when it is already so much more, make sense?

* If using this E6000 glue, make sure you are in a ventilated area. It is potent!

There are tons of options when it comes to rhinestone trim that is not really even that expensive.
I thought I would sort of just glue it into place as-is, but it was far easier gluing on one stone at a 

time… so I cut each gem away from the trim, with enough to cover the entire frames.

Drizzle a little glue out onto your paper, grab a single gem with your tweezers, dip it into the glue, 

then set it into place on your frames.
Allow it to set for a moment before moving on.

Continue spacing them evenly or place them right next to each other, it is all about your creativity 


I began the side edge of the frame and worked towards the center.
Once I got to the center I stopped and instead of continuing all the way around, I began at the 

other side.. deciding I liked the design as is (just along the top/sides) rather than taking the gems 

all the way around.
