– Broken or unwanted glasses – Scissors – Scrap Paper or Decoupage Paper – Mod Podge
– For Method 2: Plasti-kote Krystal Clear (I used Satin Finish) – Brooch Clasps – Sticky Back Felt – Glue Gun or Needle and Thread
Step 1: Remove your Lenses
If your lenses haven’t already popped out of your broken frames this is the first step.
Step 2: Cut Out your Paper
The next step is to choose the pattern or design for your brooch by cutting out a piece or pieces of scrap or decoupage paper to fit the shape of your lens.
For Method 1 (Clear Lenses) – Cut your paper to fit the shape of your lens exactly (or as close as you can get)
For Method 2 (Either Clear or Tinted lenses) – Cut your paper a bit bigger than the shape of your lens, big enough so you can wrap the paper to the back of the lens.
Step 3: Mod Podge
Next is to stick or decoupage your chosen paper on to your lens.
