Here's a great way to recycle old eyeglass lenses.

Approximate Time: Less than 1 hour



  1. Draw around eyeglass lens onto watercolor paper.

  2. Draw a desired picture onto the shape and paint with watercolors.

  3. Allow to dry. Cut out picture, apply a thin bead of glue around edge of lens, and glue picture to back of eyeglass lens.

  4. Glue on pin back.

This is simply amazing and what a conversation starter! Plus it's pretty as a picture, too! And I thought I'd seen everything (in the way of crafts). I was wrong! This is something brand new & different!
Love it! Thank you!
