Turning Buttons into Over Sized Sunglasses for Barbie

Barbie says over sized sunglasses are all the rage this summer... So I thought it would be fun to take a package of sunglass buttons and turn them into Barbie glasses. And the neat thing is, one pack will give you at least six different color glasses. All that's needed are buttons, hot glue, pipe cleaners and something to cut the loop off of the back of the button. I used heavy duty wire cutters. The most time consuming part of this project is waiting for the hot glue gun to heat up.

Buttons similar to this can be found at Walmart and/or the craft stores.
Generally a pack is less than $3, especially if you have a coupon.

Cute and easy.

Simply cut the loop off of the button and glue the pipe cleaner across the back of the button.
Bend pipe cleaner to make the sides of the glasses and cut to about 1 1/4" long.

Now Barbie's ready for that overdue vacation!

Make something just for fun and have a happy day😎

  1. What a great idea, I have used buttons for props for sure, but this works great!
