So sorry it took this long. I had the back-to-he- back-to-school series to work on and my other blog, so things did get a little hectic. But it;s better late than never!
This week, I’m going to do one straight week of posts, just see how that turns out…
Today we are going to make two pairs of sunglasses and a halter top, so without further ado, lets get down to it.
- Halter Top
The halter top is basically the easiest DIY here, and i even feel a little weird calling it a DIY. I think that it’s more of a hack. All you really want to do is take a tank top and simply cut the two straps right at the base so you have two strings that you can tie around your neck. Clean up the edges with an x-acto knife, and that’s that.
2. Beaded Sunglasses
You will need some sunglasses, white glue and beads. Optionally, you can cover the arms in duct tape.
The Only Step. Put some white glue around the rims. While it is still wet, drop in some beads. Let dry, then sport stylishly. I didn’t want to be too extra so I just put some beads on one quarter of the area directly around the rims.
3. Two Tone/Ombre Sunglasses
You will need two colors of paint, sunglasses, a bead and the optional duct taped arms. If you want to make them two toned, I’d recommend some nail tape.
Step One. Duct tape the arms (optional) and paint the rims a chosen base color. This is where you need to decide wether or not you want to do two-tone or ombre. I went with ombre.
Step Two. To do the two-toned look, put a piece of nail tape across half of the rim, not covering the lenses. You can take them out if you prefer. Simply paint above the nail tape and peel off for a crisp line.
To do the ombre, simply paint the top and let the brushstrokes blend into the base color.
Once your second color has dried, add a bead to one side to add some embellishment. Mine was two dolphins.
I hope that you guys enjoyed this, even though it was so freaking late! Remember to check out my second blog and follow both if you dont want to miss out on what I have in store for you guys next. I wish you luck with back to school, seeing as how doomsday is tomorrow. I think I’m going to do an expectations vs reality for the first day, after I’ve fully experienced the first day of grade eight. I can almost garuntee you that you’ll be laughing your behinds off.
Until next time,
PS, who’s watching Guilty Party tomorrow? Who do you think took Emma’s diary?
