I am declaring that the whole wide world needs clear, pink glasses with gold, sparkly bling on them. Because pink and gold sparkly things are just plain happy and everyone needs to be happy.
I specifically made these as a New Year's Eve must have outfit accessory. I adore all the embellished sunglasses I have seen out there but I love the idea of wearing a pair of embellished glasses at night and these would be perfect for a NYE celebration! Golden confetti and some glitter? I'm all in.
|These fabulous pink glasses were provided to me by Sunglass Warehouse. I actually own two other pair and I will order from them again and again. They have an incredible selection of modern and trendy frames for an inexpensive price. As for these fun pink ones...I LOVE them and I wore them a lot before I did this DIY and I got a ton of compliments for their funkiness. I grabbed liquid gold leaf, fine gold glitter, some mod podge (clear nail polish works great too) some paint brushes and gold sequins.|
I used a bit of mod podge before adding the gold leaf to give the gold leaf something to adhere to. I was hoping for a dipped look but I was not a fan so I changed directions. But I liked having it as a gold base coat in case any glitter showed through you would still see some gold.
After both the mod podge primer and gold leaf dried (maybe 30 minutes), I added mod podge again and sprinkled my glitter over a piece of paper. Each time, I would take the paper and slide the excess glitter back into my small bowl and do it all over again until I got the coverage I was looking for.
I brushed the excess glitter off with a dry, soft brush.
Last but not lease I added a bit more mod podge to add the sequins and then a final coat of mod podge to seal the whole thing.
