DIY Glittery Frames

One of the great things about getting stylish, affordable frames from Zenni is that you can finally have an eyeglass wardrobe to match any outfit or occasion. Zenni has a wide selection of glittery frames to choose from, but if you’re more of a do-it-yourself-er, you’ll love this tutorial for how to give your old glasses some new style!

Here is what you need:

  • A pair of Zenni frames (We recommend a plastic or acetate full rim frame with minimal or no embellishments.)
  • Mod Podge Gloss Decoupage Glue
  • Sponge Applicator
  • Glitter (your choice of color) in a shaker container
  • Paper plate or towel for keeping the glitter in one place.


Here’s how you create DIY glittery glasses :

First, take whatever pair of Zennis you’d like to use and pop the lenses out of your frames. If you don’t know how to do this, check out our video by a Zenni repair guru. You want your lenses out of your frames so that they don’t get damaged.

Second, use the applicator to coat the frames with a thin layer of Mod Podge Gloss Decoupage Glue. (We advise against glittering the temples, as this can result in ear discomfort and pesky glitter in your hair.)

Shake the glitter over the frames to coat evenly. You’ll probably have more luck standing over the glasses while you do this.

While Mod Podge dries quickly, it is best to let your new glitter frames dry overnight to ensure that they stay a-glittered.

Put your lenses back into your frames and enjoy!
