Patriotic Sparkle Sunglasses

To make your own Patriotic Sparkle Sunglasses, you’ll need:

Red sunglasses
Blue Glitter
Gold Glitter
Mod Podge
Paper Plate

supplies for patriotic sunglasses

Mix the Mod Podge and blue glitter together on the plate.

Paint it onto the sunglasses. I used chunky glitter, which is a little more tricky than fine glitter. It gets painted on in big clumps that then get pushed and shifted around with the paintbrush.

Do the same with the gold glitter. I created a flag-like design with a blue “star” field, and red and gold stripes.

Allow to dry. Your fun patriotic sunglasses are complete!
