DIY miu miu inspired sunnies

PhotobucketDIY miu miu inspired sunnies
It’s pretty much a known fashion fact that Miu Miu has mastered the art of glittering and bedazzling. So, Soph and I figured, why not follow suit and give their current sparklers a go with DIY miu miu inspired sunnies.

Here’s how we transformed a pair of vintage sunglasses into the Italian house’s must have ruby “Noir” glitter shades.

How to: DIY miu miu inspired sunnies

You will need:
Vintage sunglasses (ours are from Etsy)
Transparent drying glue
Red glitter
Tape
Paint brush
Paper plate
Clear gloss finishing spray

1. Cover the lenses with tape to protect them from the glue.

2. Create a paste with equal parts glue and glitter.

3. Using a paint brush, paint glitter mixture onto the frames.

4. Let the glitter dry and spray them with the gloss finish. Remove tape and wear!

Oh, this is beyond brilliant.

How did I not think of this??

This is so creative of you – and such a great way to get the aesthetic without the financial burden, haha.

When I get off of my job (god forbid, they don't have a "pin this" button on the company computer) I am totally pinning this.

woot woot DIYnerd is me

Amazing, DIY! I lusted after those miu miu sunnies after I saw the hefty price tag. These are different but similar enough to get that same great aesthetic! I have my sunnies on the way to try this. Thanks for sharing!

This is SO cool! Where did you come up with the idea? I'm definitely going to have to try this out. There is a strange happiness you get when people ask you were you got something and you can say that you made it yourself! Ha ha ha. Thanks for posting. I love your blog! Following!
