Do it Yourself Summer Shades

The temperatures are scorching, and the bright sun is shining-which means there is no better time to show off your sizzling sense of summer style. It's time to get crafty with a new pair of DIY sunglasses.

Chanel-inspired embellished sunglasses are as easy as gluing on ceramic roses, flowers, pearls, glitter, or whatever reflects your personal style.  Using superglue we lined the frames on a  pair of (Dollar Store) sunglasses with pearl-like beads.

You can also go from boring to interesting without the sticky mess of glue by popping out the lens and painting the frames.  Take it to another designing level by using nail polish to create intricate designs or pain the glasses two-toned for a more fashionable look.

There are so many ways to transform shades so show us your sunglasses in the comments below or by tagging us on Instagram.
