When it comes to customizing accessories, sunglasses are by far the most fun and the simplest DIY project out there. From the use of beads and gemstones, to paint and even old costume jewelry you no longer have a need for, you can really show off your unique style and creativity. All you need is a little inspiration and an inexpensive pair of sunglasses.
One of the top benefits of purchasing inexpensive wholesale sunglasses, other than the price of course, is the fact that you can easily customize them without worrying about destroying an expensive pair. And if you mess up when you customize your sunglasses, with prices as low as $8 per dozen, you'll have 11 other pairs to customize!
What you will need to customize your sunglasses:
- an inexpensive pair of sunglasses - hot glue gun or model glue - ceramic flowers - beads, gemstones, etc. - glitter - clear nail polish - model or craft paint - jewelry - and anything else you can think of to customize your own sunglasses
