- Mod sunglasses
- Craft foam (green, white, black, orange, yellow)
- Patrick’s Day glasses template
- Glue Gun (low temp)
- Puffy paint (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, gold, white, black)
Download, print and cut out the shapes of the St. Patrick’s Day glasses template.
Trace these shapes onto the corresponding foam shapes in the colors noted. Cut out these shapes.
Use hot glue (on a low temp setting) to adhere the foam shapes to the glasses. Some pieces are glued behind the glasses and some are on top.
The shamrocks and leprechaun hats are glued on top.
For the pot of gold, glue the white arch behind the glasses then the cloud and pot on top.
For the beer mug, glue the white mug on the glasses first, then the yellow beer on top.
If desired, use a pencil to lightly draw on some accent pieces to each of the glasses then draw these elements with the dimensional paint.
Allow the glasses to thoroughly dry. At least four hours is recommended but the more the better on this step!
On St. Patrick’s Day you’ll be able to wish your neighbors “top o’ the mornin’” with these one-of-a-kind handmade creations.
Here are a few other ways to get into the colorful spirit of the season!
