How to Make "Word Up" Sunglasses

Make a summer fashion statement
Materials List

tiny charms, pearls, beads, or whatever you have on hand

hot glue gun

How to
Step 1

Determine what you would like your sunglasses to say.  Choose and arrange your beads.  Begin with about 4 inches of thin wire.

Step 2

Fold over one end of the wire with your needle nose pliers.

Step 3

Thread your small letter beads onto the wire to spell your message.

Step 4

Trim the wire and fold over the other end so it locks the beads into place.

Step 5

Glue your statements onto your sunglasses.

Step 6

Next, you can add whatever jewels and beads you might have.  I am starting by glueing some plastic jewels onto the middle or my glasses.  This also helps to cover any exposed wire from the letters.

Step 7

I also have some small charms which I am using and some fabulous stick on jewels.  Again, use whatever you like or have to create a fabulous fashion statement.
