24 Chic DIY Clutches

What season is not the perfect time to rock a clutch? For cocktail parties, wedding weekends, and the like, every stylish gal needs her go-to clutch. But maybe you’re up for a weekend project that doesn’t involve going to 10 boutiques all over the city to find the right one. Maybe you want to make your own! Here are 24 DIY clutches we think you’ll love.

1. Neon Snakeskin Clutch: The combination of bright teal and graphic snakeskin makes us smile. (via Swell Mayde)

2. Mini Photo Clutch: Remember our Polaroid totes? This is a similar tutorial, but will show you how to create a clutch from scratch. (via A Beautiful Mess)

3. Colorful Studded Clutch: For this project, we embellished existing clutches with neon studs. We made the studs neon by painting them with spray paint! (via Brit + Co.)

4. Slouchy Clutch: Choose two complementary fabrics and bring them together in this slouchy, easy-to-make clutch. (via BlueBerry Ash)

5. Box Clear Clutch: This looks like a piece of street style straight from The Sartorialist. (via Swell Mayde)

6. 80s Sequin Sweater: Talk about a thrift store win! This tutorial will show you how to turn a totally insane sequined sweater into a surprisingly chic clutch. (via Elle & Ish)

7. Embellished Shell Clutch: Who says shell-themed accessories are just for trips to Hawaii? (via Anna Wii)

8. Gold-Dipped Clutch: These would go just swimmingly with our gold-tipped ballet flats. (via I Spy DIY)

9. Envelope Clutch: For a classic clutch and a simple tutorial, you can always start with the basic envelope. (via Behind the Seams)

10. Gold Glitter Clutch: Looking to customize a clutch you already have? Nothing says shiny chic like a bit of gold glitter. (I Am Style-ish)

11. The Tote Clutch: This bit of ingenuity is both a tote bag and a clutch. Win! (via Brit + Co.)

12. Suede Envelope: With a few different strap options, you can easily don this suede number for formal or casual occasions. (via designlovefest)

13. Neon Stud Clutch: This clutch started out as a totally cheesy looking silver purse. What saved it? Hot pink spray paint, of course! (via Glitter ‘N Glue)

14. Chandelier Crystal Clutch: Definitely on the blinged out side, this is a fun and festive way to deck out a basic clutch. (via Honestly WTF)

15. Painted Stripes: Or you can take a cue from our tote bag tutorial and go for hand-painted stripes. (via Handbag Heaven)

16. Wrap Clutch: Still have a pile of textiles in your closet from trip to South America, Asia, or Africa? Or maybe just found an awesome vintage scarf or blanket you want to turn into a clutch? Then this is the tutorial for you. (via Swell Mayde)



17. Leather Fold Over Clutch: The fold over is a great way to have a clutch and laptop case in one. (via Say Yes To Hoboken)

19. Polka Dot Envelope: You know we’ve got a weakness for just about everything polka dot ;) (via Two Material Girls)

20. Gold Chain Fringe: We know this is a visual mouthful, but it might be our favorite hack on this list. Our only question – how heavy is it when empty? (via Typical Housecat)

21. Lime Lace Clutch: Not technically a DIY, this is a great inspiration clutch. Take any black clutch and cover with neon lace! (via PIRIFOOLERY on Etsy)

22. Leather Tassel Clutch: Add a tassel for a bit of boho play – we especially love the combination of zipper style and envelope style in this one. (via Girlscene)
