Measure down about 2" from the top of tube and draw your first shape. I've found my design works adequately, but feel free to play around with it. Make note that this is what will be holding your sunglasses in place.
Once all holes are cut and cleaned of any ragged edges, its time to paint. I just used spray paint that I had on hand. I've made 2 of these, one black one with regular gloss paint, and a white one with Krylon Prime and Paint in one. I think the primer one had better coverage. Either way 2-3 coats. It only has to dry about 10-15 minutes between coats. Make sure to paint the inside too.
Step 5: Voila!
Accessorize! You could easily add more cut outs or use take out chop sticks poked through the tube to hold bracelets and necklaces also. This is an easy project, but saves your sunglasses from getting all scratched or lost. Hope you like. There are countless ways this can be embellished and personalized.
