Project #153: Spec-tacular Valentine’s Day glasses

Tuesday, 11 February 2014 by Irene Hoofs

Bloesem Kids | Valentines DIY spec-tacular glasses craft project

As I prepared for Valentine’s Day this year I knew I wanted to come up with a craft that was fun but didn’t include chocolate or sweets. Now that both of my children are at school (and knowing they would want to make gifts for their classmates) I also wanted a craft they could make on their own – or with minimal assistance. My Spec-tacular Valentine’s Day glasses fit the bill and were inspired by my four year old who just loves wearing sunglasses. 

What you’ll need:
*Spec-tacular Valentine Printable (link: http://littlelovely.typepad.com/littlelovely/2014/02/free-spec-tacular-valentines-day-craft-printable.html
*Scissors
*Glue
*Glitter (optional)

Step 1:
Cut out the Spec-tacular Valentine’s Day cover, glasses and glasses arms.

Optional Step 2:
Add glue to the glasses frame and decorate with glitter. Set aside to dry.

Step 3:
Secure arms to the back of the glasses frame with glue. This can be achieved by folding over a section of the arm (about the width of the glasses frame) and gluing. Set aside to dry. Note: You may want to staple or cellotape the arms of the glasses if you think the recipient may be heavy-handed.

Step 4: Fold the cover along the lines as shown. Apply glue to the cover flaps and secure. Set aside to dry.

Step 5: When your items are dry, place glasses inside cover and give to your Valentine.
