So here is a how to on, real mirrored glasses so be careful when wearing them please! So I made these for my friend Trish, for our Gaga-ish night out at Punk and everyone wanted a pair. They are really easy to make so here's how :
Gaga glasses:

So you will need:
  • One sheet of card about A4 size will do
  • Mirrored tiles small and big (Ebay)
  • Sunglasses or plain glasses any will do
  • Super strength glue
  • Foil or any reflective tape (just so you can't see the card in between the mirror tiles.
  • Pair of scissors  
  • silver string or whatever you have.

Take your sunglasses and cover the handle's in tape I used silver tape which is not too hard to buy can always spray or paint them.
Once your done, than start to cut out a mask shape out of the card, again cover it on both sides. Cut it into any shape you like but it must cover the glasses don't forget (like I did) to cut away around the bottom for your nose.

Trace around the sunglasses if this helps and make eye holes (yeah it's good to see where your going)it should look abit like this .....

Once your happy place it on top of the glasses, just to check it covers it and you have space for the bridge of your nose. Take your string and pierce a whole into the edge of the mask, feed the string through and tie around the joint of the glasses.

Only do this on one side for the moment because you need to start gluing the sunglasses frame to the card mask. You will need to leave them for about 30 mins, just so the glue can take and they can take the weight of the mirror tiles you can tie the other side.

Now is the tricky/fun part ....start around the eye hole's and start sticking them on, you can copy Gaga's mask or like me mix it up a bit. Once them are all stuck on remove any glue on top with a wet cloth (it's almost impossible when dry).

Also if you mess up like I did don't be scared to take off the tiles and rearrange them (I also cut the top inwards to make it look cooler). Than you are done, sorry if I explained this really badly and good luck with your mirror glasses. NOW YOU CAN ENJOY !!

Before: they were too heavy so I remove alot and this is them after .......

So anyway my next DIY is the studded top I have on above ...really easy to make. Hope you are all well, and thank you for the comment's welcome to everyone who has joined I look forward to getting to know you all. Have a wicked weekend if I can't post before it and glad to be back xxx
