DIY: Floral embellished Dolce and Gabbana inspired sunglasses

In honour of receiving over a hundred followers on blogspot, I thought I'd do a little giveaway!
Which I shall post more information about here after my DIY!

These floral sunglasses were inspired by Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses at their Autumn Winter 2012 collection.

They are so easy to make, anyone can look chic with their own inspired pair!

What you will need:
- A pair of Sunglasses with a thick top rim (preferably cat eye)
- A mix of cabochon flowers (I bought mine from this lovely etsy seller)
- A glue gun

Firstly assemble your arrangement of flower cabochons from how you'd like to place them on your sunglasses.
Make sure the back of the flowers are either flat or have a good surface for the glue to stick to.

Now, get your glue gun heated up and ready!
Add a small blob onto the back of the flowers, it doesn't matter if the blob does not cover the entire surface of the flower. The glue will spread out in a momento.

Gently place your flowers onto the sunglasses, press it down for the glue to spread out and grip to the surface.

Repeat these steps quickly to avoid the glue drying and having to redo all!

I will be giving away one of these pairs to my lovely followers! This is my first giveaway and recently I received over a hundred followers of google reader and I've created over a hundred posts!
