What Supplies to Buy
To make these Spiderman sunglasses, you’ll only need two items:
- An inexpensive pair of red sunglasses
- A fine tip black Sharpie / permanent marker
Can You Use a Marker With a Different Tip Thickness?
You can use a marker with a different size tip, but we believe you’ll have a better experience with a fine tip Sharpie that will improve your ability to draw precise lines.

How to Make Spiderman Sunglasses
Now that you have all the things you need, you’re ready to get started! To start, make sure your sunglasses are clean, dry, and free of any dirt. Now, let’s get drawing!
Anchoring Your Design
Using a fine tip Sharpie, start by drawing a line right down the center of the bridge. Thicken the line as you go until it’s about 1/16th of an inch.
On each side of the line you just drew, add a line angling down at about 75 degrees to create a “V” shape. These will anchor the rest of your design. Add similar lines on the outer rims in a “V” shape to create an anchor for the webbing on the sides.
Now you’re ready to start drawing the webbing! There’s really no right or wrong way to add this next part, so have fun with it! Start with your anchor areas where you’ve already drawn straight lines. Envision what a spider web would like in these areas. From there, add curved lines in a web-like pattern to connect your straight lines. Thicken the lines as you go to 1/16th inch or your desired thickness.
Made a Mistake?
No problem, things happen! Simply use a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover to erase the areas you want to change or improve and add new lines.
All that’s left to do now is to add lines to the empty areas! Draw a mixture of straight lines at varied angles to your liking. Next, fill in areas with curved lines to create the web-like pattern. Last but not least, take your time to darken any lines that may have been missed.
Once you’re happy with your design, take a step back and admire your work! You’ve just created a pair of DIY Spiderman sunglasses that are sure to impress your friends and family!
Want your design to last longer? Find a sealant product, like clear nail polish to coat your design with. Add a first coat and let it set to dry. Add a second coat for added protection.
