Eye Love You Eyeglass Case Tutorial!

I love giving Valentine’s Day gifts. I also love unique things, dorky sayings and pop art. So I decided to combine my love for all four things into one crafty V-Day gift. Eye love you!

Now I don’t know if they carry them anymore because it’s far away and a special trip for me, but I got this wood eyeglass case from Michael’s in the one buck section so keep your EYES peeled!

For this project you will need:

  • acrylic paints
  • black Sharpie
  • ready to finish wood eyeglass holder

Sketch out your eye, heart then U. Drawing with a pencil on the wood was NOT easy to do smoothly. I’d really recommend using a pencil that has lighter lead. Does that make sense? Like my mechanical pencils always draw darker than, say, my old school #2s.

Next paint all of that groovy stuff up. Keep your palette limited for a more pop art look.

And did you see that business right there. Gah! But this is why I left my wood unfinished. Simply take a piece of fine grit sandpaper and carefully remove the paint that you smudged.

Finish with a tracing of black sharpie around your heart to finish up!

And just in case you’ve never seen one of these things… the glasses go inside :) (I’m really not sure why I took or chose to edit this photo for inclusion but whatevs)

There she is. How cute is that? Do you have a bespectacled loved one that you’d love to tell “eye love you”?

    That’s so cool. I’ve never seen a wooden glasses case before. My boyfriend and I both wear glasses.

    Cute glasses case – don’t you just love the dollar section at Michaels? But my favorite part of your post… the use of the word bespectacled.
