How to Make Decoder Glasses at Home

Save

Decoder glasses have been around for many years, but have recently experienced a resurgence. 3D technology now appears in movies, television shows and even commercials. Make your own pair of 3D decoder glasses in just a few minutes, with items purchased from a local art or crafts store. Who knows what 3D image or secret message you may come across next?

Things You'll Need

  • Cardstock
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Blue and red acetate sheets
  • Marker
  • Tape
  • Draw a flattened pair of glasses onto a piece of cardstock. Use an existing pair of glasses as your model, or measure your head to determine how long the sides need to be to reach your ears.

  • Cut out the drawing with a pair of scissors. Poke a hole through the middle of each lens with the scissors, then cut the lenses out.

  • Place the acetate on top of the glasses and trace each lens with a marker. Trace one red lens and one blue lens. Cut out around the traced pattern a little bigger than actual size. This will leave enough room on the acetate to tape each piece to the cardstock.

  • Tape the blue piece of acetate to the lens that will be on the right eye, and the red acetate to the lens that will be on the left eye.

  • Fold the ear posts down.
