DIY: How to make a charming chain for your sunnies

Published 04/11/2014 by

Losing your fave shades is the biggest bummer. The best way to avoid heartbreak? Put a chain on it. This easy DIY chain will ensure your sunglasses stay with you all summer long.

What you need:

  • Emoji charms
  • Loops for glasses
  • Jump links to attach the charms
  • Embroidery thread in four different colours
  • Two feet of chain


Step 1: Tie the four threads together then tie the threads to one end of the chain.

Step 2: Hold the chain flat in your hand, and loop the thread into the chain underneath (it should look sort of like a pretzel) then pull the thread through.

Step 3: Repeat step 2 until you get to the end of the chain.

Step 4: When the chain has been threaded add your emoji charms every few inches.

Step 5: Use jump links to attach the glass holders to each end of the chain.

Step 6: Never lose your glasses again.
