|DIY Sunglasses & Glasses Display Box|
I was just about to throw away the gift box my pajama set came in when DIY inspiration struck: why not turn it into a display box for my sunglasses?
They actually have gorgeous handmade wooden display boxes (you've probably seen them on Instagram), but they can go for a few hundred (!) bucks. I really like the concept though and thought it'd be nice to have a pretty box to show off a few of my favorite pairs, rather than just keeping them scattered in a plastic cubby next to my bed (oops).
Once the idea came to me, I realized I had some random materials that would work and immediately dropped what I was doing just to see if I could make it. It didn't take long at all! It's easy, it keeps your sunglasses clean and safe, and it's nice to look at. Plus, it lets you see the frames at a glance so that you don't have to dig through your junk drawer to find a specific pair (ahem, like me). Let's get to it:
- Small Cardboard Box
- Foam Padding/Craft Foam Sheet - I used a foam sheet that's 3/8 inch thick (it was actually the packing material in a package I received).
- Hot Glue Gun
- Scrap Fabric (should be at least a few inches larger than the length x width of the box)
Doesn't it feel nice to be organized?
