Picture of Sunglasses Holder/Frame

The people that lived in my house prior left a bunch of old frames behind. So I had a few free ones to choose from! Remove whatever backing and also the glass contained in the frame. (I saved the glass for future projects). Paint frame your desired color. I used a purple and then added glitter!

Step 3:

Gather a staple gun, and some thin jewelry making wire. It's hard too see but mine is fuchsia to match the pink and purple theme.

Step 4:

Now here comes the staple gun! For each place the wire is bound to the frame I used three staples. Start by having about 3-4 fingers width of overlap on either aide of the frame. The first staple goes close to the outside perimeter.

Step 9:

Flip your beautiful frame around and add your glasses! Functional art!
