Sunday DIY: Embellished Sunglasses (Part 2)

Back in early June I showed you a cute way to embellish your sunglasses for summer using tiny resin flowers and also promised there would be a second sunglasses DIY idea to follow. Since it seems to be weather appropriate right now (in the UK at least!), today I'm back to share another really simple ways to update an old pair of sunglasses with a great idea inspired by I Spy DIY.

The idea is really simple, grab some pretty coloured threads and wrap them around the arm/temple of your sunglasses to add a pop of colour and texture.
For the example shown below I created an ombre effect starting off with a coral followed by a peach and finally a bright orange. The pictures show pretty clearly how this simple DIY is done and although they don't look anywhere near as pretty as the pair over at I Spy DIY (try & use sunglasses that don't have weirdly shaped arms like mine did!) hopefully they might still inspire some of you to create your own version.
