Add this to your page after the search box code..   Change the number values to suite your needs.

The class name is .gsc-search-box

This part " !important" is important.

<style type="text/css">
.gsc-search-box {border: 2px solid !important;
    border-radius: 25px !important;
    opacity: 0.5 !important;

}</style>

Open in new window

Here some more of the css.

 input.gsc-search-button { margin-left : 2px; } div.gsc-clear-button { display : inline; text-align : right; margin-left : 4px; margin-right : 4px; padding-left : 10px; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: center center; background-image: url('//www.google.com/uds/css/clear.gif'); cursor : pointer; } .gsc-search-box-tools .gsc-clear-button { display: none; } .gsc-results-close-btn { background-image: url("//www.google.com/images/nav_logo114.png"); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: -140px -230px; float: right; display: none; opacity: 0; height: 12px; width: 12px; position: absolute !important; top: 20px; right: 20px; cursor: pointer; }
