step 1

Determine the placement of your studs and beads. Lay them out, draw some pictures, whatever works for you.

step 2

I glued my two elephant beads first, one on each corner at the point of the cateye.Pink and Green Elephant DIY Sunglasses Elephant Beads

step 3

Then start gluing your pink studs around your elephant beads.

TIP: I found it worked best to put a small amount of glue on a paper plate and use a toothpick to apply the glue to the glasses, then set the stud into the glue.

I glued mine across the top of the glasses frame and a little bit down the sides on the front.Pink and Green Elephant DIY Sunglasses Studs

I also put two studs on each of the bows of the sunglasses, one at the very end (so it will peek out behind my ear) and the other one at the front of the bow to give more of a cat eye shape from the side.
