Tortoise Shell Bling Sunglasses Instructions Designed by Teri McCamish
For reading on the beach make sure you're stylin' from head to toe! Embellish your favorite pair of sunglasses with a color scheme to match your fashion palette.
Step one: Choose a pair of sunglasses with enough space to embellish. Lay out the desired pattern of flatbacks on paper.
Step two: Mix a small amount of 1-hour two-part epoxy. Either use a brush to lay a thin film of epoxy to the area you want to embellish or use a paperclip to dot a small amount of epoxy to the backside of each flatback. Place the flatbacks onto their corresponding positions on the sunglasses using a jewel setter. Let dry.
Estimated time: Less than 30 minutes (plus dry time) Difficulty level: Beginner
