DIY ~ Personalized Sunglasses Case

Hi lovelies!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend; the bf, his daughter, and I headed south for an impromptu weekend away in Manitou Springs, where we hiked in Garden of the Gods.  It's such a gorgeous place, everyone should try and see it!

Today's DIY is inspired by the adorable customized sunglasses cases I see everywhere for an ungodly amount of money.  I made mine for only $1!  {Click for the how-to!}

You'll need:

  • A plain sunglasses case (this I found at the dollar store!) {you could also make one using leftover fabric, in which case you'd spend nothing!}
  • A picture sized the same as your case of some sunglasses (find and print one online, or draw your own!  I of course chose a cute pair of cat-eyes!)
  • Scissors or a craft knife
  • Paint pen, paint, sharpies, whatever you'd rather!
  • Not pictured: pins

Cut out your image and pin the stencil to the case.

Color in the stencil for the frame using your desired medium.  I used a paint pen, and did two coats with the stencil, removed the stencil, and did a third.

You can leave them with just the frame, but I decided to color in the lenses with a silver sharpie!

Voila!  So easy, and a cute, fun way to personalize a plain case.  You could add initials to the other side and it would make a lovely gift.  Get creative and use different shapes of sunglasses, different colors, etc.  Have fun and make it your own!
