We started with the rainbow hearts look.

Hands placing glitter washi tape on heart-shaped rainbow cut-outs.

Then added strips of glitter tape that matched the colors on our print for extra sparkle.

If you’re using glue, it’s best to dot it around the edge of your sunglasses, so you don’t obstruct your vision. Also easier to remove!

Hands adding a triangle with colors symbolizing different groups within the LGBTQ community to the DIY Pride Month sunglasses.

We accented this pair with a triangle featuring the additional colors of the Progress Pride Flag.

Hands adding glitter to a pair of DIY Pride Month sunglasses that symbolize transgender individuals.

Of course, we have a version in transgender Pride Flag colors…with bonus glitter-glue accents on the white stripes.

Gemstones make excellent add-ons. And you can spell out any message or name you want in alphabet beads.

To give your pom-pom clouds some dimension, start by gluing a base layer of poms to the sunglasses. Then put a dot of hot glue on a pom-pom and pop a few more on top.
