Hard eyeglass cases are usually plain. Most are solid in color, and they do nothing more than serve a purpose. They prevent glasses from becoming broken or bent when stored in a pocket, purse or any other risky location. Do not bother buying expensive decorative holders. Use these ideas for decorating hard eyeglass cases, and personalize your holders in creative new ways.
Personalize Hard Eyeglass Cases with Peel and Stick Letters
If you have always wanted monogrammed hard eyeglass cases, consider decorating them with peel and stick lettering. Visit a craft store, and find self stick letters of the appropriate style and size. High quality lettering will be thinner than a standard sheet of paper, and they will appear to be painted on. If something with an embroidered look is desired, buy embroidered lettering. Attach it with strong craft adhesive, especially around the edges. No matter which style is chosen, the lettering will dress up ordinary hard eyeglass cases in stylish new ways, and there will be no question as to who they belong to.
Add Faux Self-Stick Gems
Craft stores sell beautiful faux self-stick gems. Many people would love to use them, but they have no idea what to use them on. Consider using faux self-stick gems when decorating hard eyeglass cases. Cover the hinged top and sides or just the top. It will look like a flashy designer case rather than something that was an afterthought. Use multiple colors or a single hue for something that is truly unique.
Coat Hard Eyeglass Cases with Glitter
If you prefer something glitzy and exceptionally eye catching, consider covering plain hard eyeglass cases with color shift glitter of your choice. Select something very fine or choose chunkier bits that look like shards of broken mirrors. Begin by placing a sheet of waxed paper in between the hinged sections, and cover the rest with spray adhesive. Before the adhesive has a chance to dry, coat it with glitter. Shake off any excess glitter, and apply more as necessary. Finish with a coat of clear acrylic sealer to keep the glitter firmly in place. Simple hard eyeglass cases will look like one-of-a-kind designer accessories.
