Grace is sporting a one-of-a-kind pair of sunglasses today.

A super fun way to play with fashion is to customize plain accessories!

Decorate Sunglasses for your Doll-5

I was inspired to make these colorful sunglasses after seeing Lea’s sunglasses, from her exclusive collection. (American Girl’s GOTY 2016)

Decorate Sunglasses for your Doll-4

Something about the colorful pattern across the top of Lea’s sunglasses reminded me of washi tape.  It turns out washi tape is a perfect way to add a colorful pattern to sunglasses!


  • sunglasses (These are My Life As a brand from Walmart.)
  • washi tape (Mine is the Duck Tape brand and I found it at Walmart.)
  • scissors

Decorate Sunglasses for your Doll-3

Unroll the a piece of tape and cut it into 3 to 4 thin strips.

Start on one side of the glasses laying down a strip of tape working carefully around the curves and pressing the tape down as you go.

For the sides of the glasses you can use a regular strip of tape and fold it over the sides to wrap it around.

Customizing simple sunglasses is a quick and fun craft to add a little style to a doll’s wardrobe.  Some other fun items to decorate sunglasses might be stickers, jewels, mini flowers, or sequins.  Be create and use what you have on hand!
