DIY fashion is making a comeback, and we are loving it! Patches, embroidery, pins, paint (90s flashbacks) – it is so fun to have your clothes and accessories really reflect who you are and what you love. Because we love this trend, we decided to try it out. So today, we are sharing the tutorial for this color blocked DIY clutch bag, featuring Happy Jackets enamel pins, that can be easily customized to match your style!
- Straw Clutch
- Martha Steward Multi-Surface Satin Paint (main color and accent color)
- Enamel Pins (soooo many cute ones!)
- Paint Brushes
- Glue Gun
Step 1: Tape across the top of the clutch to achieve a clean line when you paint. Then apply your main paint color to the front flap of the clutch. Add multiple coats, if needed. Let dry and remove the tape.
Step 2: Apply your accent paint color as trim on the edge of the clutch flap. Add multiple coats, if needed. Let dry.
Step 3: Add your pins to the clutch. I chose these adorable fruit pins for summer, but Consumer Crafts has an amazing selection – anything from breakfast foods, to text acronyms. They are perfect for adding your own personal style to this craft project!
Step 4: Pull the tassel out of its silver cap (it should come out pretty easily with a little twisting). Using hot glue, stick it on the inside of the clutch, just below the snap button.
