Beaded Sunglasses Strap

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Keep track of your favorite shades with this supercool strap.


  • 2 plastic eyeglass holders (available at drugstores)
  • 3 yards of plastic lanyard
  • Plastic beads (1/4-inch diameter)


Thread one of the eyeglass holders onto the lanyard, placing it in the center of the strip. Fold the lanyard in half and then tie a knot, forming a small loop.

Thread a plastic bead onto one strand of the lanyard. Send the other strand through the bead in the opposite direction. Pull on both strands to tighten. Continue adding beads using the same method until the strap is as long as you would like.

To finish the piece, thread the other eyeglass holder onto one of the lanyards. Tie the two lanyard lengths together with a knot placed close to the last bead, leaving a small loop. Trim the ends and hide the knot by pushing it inside the bead.
