It would be better if your lenses were made out of plastic.

first, trace four circles onto a plastic bottle. Then, cut them out. After, hot glue two of the circles together leaving a tiney hole to put water in. Next, get one of those medicine sucker upper things and fill it up with water. Now put that water into the lenses you made through the hole. Lastly, just seal up the hole with hot glue.
