Yesterday I found a whole bunch of incredible blingy DIY posts from all over the internet. Inspired but short on time, I whipped up this glittered glass case. It’s quick, easy and a guaranteed way to find your glasses in that big ol’ mess you call a purse!

I’m short on time and amped up on caffiene, so let’s get going!

You will need:

STEP 1: Pour out some Mod Podge and top with a healthy dose of glitter. Use your bristled brush and stir it up well.

STEP 2: Slather that stuff on thick. To try and curb accidents and mistakes, I chose to only cover one side at a time. If you’re less accident prone, you may decide to do both at once and that’s cool, too.

STEP 3: While your first coat is still wet, sprinkle glitter on top. Allow to dry fully.

STEP 4: Go over the top of your glitter with a coat of Mod Podge only to seal in the glitter and prevent it from getting everywhere. Allow to dry fully/

STEP 5: If you put your glitter on thick, there are going to be inevitable drips and run over on the inside edges. Very gently peel back to separate from the plastic. Use scissors or an x-acto knife to trim up.

And that’s that – an open and shut project! See you soon!

      I got the case with my glasses I purchased from Zenni Optical. I think you can find something similar at Walmart.
