Fun Frames

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Zany stick-on sea creatures turn plain old shades into the latest in summer fashion.

Materials

  • Lightweight craft foam
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Puffy paint
  • Stick-on Velcro
  • Sunglasses

Instructions

Fun Frames step 1

1. Sketch small animal shapes on craft foam (sold in small sheets at most craft stores) and then cut them out with scissors. You can either make the entire creature in one piece, like the seahorse and starfish shown here, or you can layer and glue together different shapes. To make a turtle, for example, start with a basic body shape, then top it with a shell cut from a different color.

2. Glue on googly eyes and use puffy paint to pipe on decorative details.

3. Once the paint dries, use stick-on Velcro to fasten the critters to the sunglasses.
