There’s no better time than the holidays to dress up in sparkles, diamonds, and fur. Nothing should hold you back from staying on trend, especially your bank account. This holiday season, add a little DIY to your party outfits with one (or all three!) of these fab DIY clutches. Each one took less than an hour and less than $40 to make (compared to clutches that sell for hundreds of dollars). Let’s get DIY-ing!
DIY Two-Toned Fur Clutch
Try spending the evening *not* petting your purse. We dare you.
Place the bag on the underside of the fur. Trace the outside of the bag and cut out.
Trace the outside of the bag on your second piece of fur and cut out. Cut the two pieces of fur in half.
Glue the patches of fur to one side of the bag to make a two-toned pattern. Repeat on the second side of the bag.
Cut strips of fur to glue on the edges of the bag.
It's like a carry-on stuffed animal!
DIY Sequin Clutch
Sparkles are *always* necessary.
Starting from the top left corner, glue the sequin ribbon in diagonal stripes. Don’t forget to also glue sequins on the edges.
We liked making each stripe a little lopsy, instead of perfectly diagonal, to add character.
Keep gluing until your whole clutch is covered in sparkles.
Sequins all day, every day!
DIY Gemstone Clutch
It only takes $30 to look like a million bucks.
This clutch is the easiest of all to make! Just glue the gemstones and pearls all over the front of the bag. We liked making clusters of the pearls and clusters of the gemstones. Make sure to add a lot of glue because the gemstones can pop off pretty easily.
So much bling!
Time to paint the town!
