This season is all about bright color pops and unexpected details. Instead of purchasing a new pair of sunglasses, I used an inexpensive paint marker to jazz up a few old pairs I had laying around. Cheap, colorful, and crafty!
-Basic sunglasses. The big, chunky plastic ones work best.
-A variety of paint markers. I like the oil based Sharpies for bright colors and Elmer’s Painter’s Paint markers for metallics.
-Your pretty face

1. Pick a fun color of oil based Sharpie that will pop with the color of the sunglasses.
2. Using a steady hand, color in the inside of the sunglasses, being careful not to get any on the lenses. Keep a Q-tip handy for any mistakes, the Sharpie will wipe off within a few seconds before it dries.
3. Get crazy and draw a fun pattern over the bright color, like I did with the metallic silver polka dots and purple stripes.
4. Let dry.
5. Sport your flashy new sunglasses around town with their unexpected color pop.
