Eyeglass Case Animal Clutch

So last year I bought several plastic eyeglass cases because I knew that eventually I would find something fun to do with them.  Cut to an entire year of looking at them and wondering what was I thinking?  Finally I figured out a worthy project!  My nieces are going to flip for these little zoo animal clutches.  
Everything is more fun with googly eyes!

Hard plastic eyeglass case
Pony beads
Googly Eyes
Trace the eyeglass case and figure out your animal design
Paint it on the case and let it dry
Drill a small hole in the top of the case
String about 12" of beads on a 20" piece of cord 
Thread the cord through the hole and knot on the inside
Glue on the googly eyes with E-6000 and let dry!
I ain't lion!


  1. I have several eye glass cases that I've wanted to decorate. Now I know what I can do with them!
    Should you put a top coat over the paint to keep it from scratching off? If so, what would you recommend?
