Whatever be the reason behind it, here are some creative ideas on how to use your huge collection of sunnies to decorate your home! Funky, traditional, dainty – take a pick and we have ideas for ‘em all!

1. Into the Woods

Hanging these pieces of beauty from a branch using thin ropes or cords is a great idea to give your room a natural look.
You can either hang them on the branch or glue two sturdy branches to the wall and support your sunnies on them. Either way, the branch and the twine will give your room a ‘woody’ look, and you get to flaunt your sunnies in the most natural way!

2. Shades Bucket Challenge

Another creative way to decorate your place with your shades is to stack them in a little bucket. You can hang the buckets on the wall or place them on a shelf or cabinet.
You can also decorate the bucket with fairy lights and make a shining-soothing night light out of it, or just paint it with your favourite polka dots and give it a retro look. In any case, you can just toss your shades in them and never lose a pair!

4. Frame it up
