I’ve always felt that clothing and accessories make for excellent décor. Home decor is an expression of who you are – as is the way you dress yourself – so why not merge the two together by displaying your wardrobe elements around your home? Right this moment I have boots lined up along my steps, necklaces hung on a decorative window pane in the bathroom, and a crochet shawl tossed gracefully over my closet door – which remains open so that the clothes hanging inside are forever contributing to the overall feeling of my home.
As spring draws nearer day by day, I can’t stop thinking about all the new sunglasses I want to add to my collection, and how I’m going to display them at home. Here are some ideas I’ve come up with! How are you displaying your sunnies this spring?
I love the idea of sunglasses hanging from a branch. I used some wood I found outside and tied some looped twine to it to hang my sunnies. I attached the two outside pieces of twine to a coat rack on either side, but this also would work hanging on a wall or from the ceiling!
Another way to do it is to just forget about the branch and just use a tangled line of twine! I love how casual this looks. It kind of looks like the sunglasses have washed ashore this way, tangled in a net.
Actually, go get that branch again. And while you’re at it, grab another one. I attached these two branches to the wall by hot-gluing a couple thumbtacks to them. I like how they act as little shelves here. This is an unexpected way to display sunglasses, and it allows you to add some extra little touches like dried flowers or any trinkets you’ve collected.
Hanging sunglasses in the window is another idea I love. You could do this in your home in the dead of winter to remind yourself that warm, bright days are ahead! Just attach a barely-visible wire to your window with a tack or nail, and hang your sunnies as you please. This is also a great opportunity to add in some more décor elements to make it more interesting. You could wrap a strip of pretty fabric around the wire or have your sunnies hang in one window while your necklaces hang in another.
I got this rack (?) at a sample sale a while back, having no idea what its intended purpose was, but loving it nonetheless. Is it a jewelry rack? Is it for photos? I still have no idea. Normally I have it displayed on my kitchen shelves with some other pretty, vintage-looking decorations, but I just realized that this would make a great sunglass holder, as well!
I’d love to hear what kind of creative ideas you guys have for displaying sunglasses. Tell us! Tell us!
