Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut out a two-cup section from a cardboard egg carton. Poke out the bottoms of the cups for eye holes.
Step 2 Cut a small hole at the top of each cup on the outer edge. This is where the chenille stem "frames" will go.
Step 3 Paint the egg-carton glasses any color or combination of colors that you choose. Let the paint dry completely.
Step 4 Use Elmer's® Swirl Glitter Glue to decorate the glasses. Glue fake eyelashes to the glasses or make your own eyelashes out of black construction paper. Let the glue dry completely.
Step 5 Insert a chenille stems into each hole to make the stems of the eyeglass frames.
Step 6 Bend the chenille stems so that they fit snugly around your ears. Enjoy wearing your new silly spectacles!
