We started with the rainbow hearts look.

Then added strips of glitter tape that matched the colours 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!

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

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.
