How To Make New Year's Party Glasses
You Will Need
  • A pair of sunglasses
  • Drawing paper
  • A pencil
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard or poster paper
  • Decorations
step 1Sketch a design
Using a pair of your own glasses, lay one of the earpieces flat on a 20-inch piece of sketch paper, and trace its outline. Then, tilt the glasses until the front of the lenses are resting on the paper, and trace the lens outline. Tilt again to trace the other earpiece. You should now have a flat outline of your glasses.
step 2Make eye openings
Draw circles in the center of the sketch for eye openings. Cut out the circles.
spacer tip For extra flair, draw different shapes for the eyeholes, like hearts, stars, or octagons.
step 3Draw the new year in numbers
Sketch the number of the new year around these openings. Add designs to the top of the prototype, above the lenses.
step 4Make cutouts
Cut around the numbers so they stand out.
step 5Try on the glasses
Try on the glasses to see how they look. Make sure the eye holes are big enough for you to see through and in the correct location, and check that the sides fit securely over your ears.
spacer tip You may have to make several sketches before you get a perfect prototype.
step 6Trace sketch onto cardboard
Once you have a good prototype, trace it onto the cardboard or poster paper and make the cutouts
step 7Decorate
Decorate however you like. Now go ring in the New Year in style!
