We’re definitely in bachelorette & wedding season, and now I’m sharing another DIY bachelorette project for the year, with a beach theme! My friend is having her weekend in Rosemary Beach and although I can’t go, I definitely wanted to be involved… so I helped with bachelorette goodies!
I made my first sunglasses last year for my bachelorette weekend in Savannah. They turned out to be a fun gift to give everyone since we stayed on the beach, so I thought it would be a good item to include for Liz’s beach bachelorette too!

What you’ll need:
Open up Design Space and type out all of the names. The side of sunglasses aren’t very big, so you’ll need to measure the side and figure out how long and tall the names can be. I believe mine could be 1/2″ tall and 1 1/2″ long. Then adjust the size of the names to fit in those parameters. For a cohesive look, I kept them all the same height. I also did the names in all uppercase to make it easier when weeding such small words from the vinyl.
I wanted to add a little something extra to Liz’s “Bride to Be” side, so found a clipart image of a diamond ring to import.
Click “Upload image” on the left menu, find the file on your computer, choose ‘Simple Image’ and continue.
Next, click out anything you don’t want included – I had to get rid of the white background. Save it as a cut image, and then add it to your design, sized appropriately next to ‘Bride to Be.’ Since the sunglasses were teal, I cut all the girls names in white vinyl. Cut each name out of the vinyl with your Cricut and weed the excess out using the weeder tool. Go slowly – the letters are small and require a little more attention to detail.After their names were cut, I cut Liz’s out in teal vinyl and then cut the ring out in a silver vinyl.
Cut out transfer tape the same size as the names, put it on top, and use the scraper to made sure the vinyl is adhered to the transfer tape and any air bubbles are gone. Then remove the back paper, apply the vinyl to the sunglasses and slowly remove the transfer tape.
Repeat for all of the sunglasses & you’re done! I like how Liz’s turned out, even the diamond ring on the side (that ring was really tedious to weed). I love the teal & white color combination. Can’t wait to see them on the beach this weekend!
