Super Easy Petal Clutch


Isn't this fun?
It was so easy, I can hardly stand it!! Ever since I saw Jessica's tutorial at Happy Together for the petal backpack (you've all seen that by now, right??) I've been thinking about this little vintage clutch I picked up at a thrift store once (for a quarter!!). I'll show you how I did it....


My supplies:
1 vintage clutch, 1 can of metallic gold spray paint, and 4 "silk" flowers from the dollar store.

I took apart the flowers and sprayed the petals, and a light coat on my clutch as well, in case it peeks out anywhere.


Then I cut my petals apart....
Used a glue gun to glue the petals on the clutch, biggest petals on the bottom....
In-between sized on the middle row....
and smallest on top!
Then I glued a strand of grey glass pearls on, and finished it with a little foam flower that was in a potpourri basket I had (hey, I use what I have!).
Pretty, pretty!!

  3. So pretty! You can get bags of faux rose petals at the dollar store in the wedding section, too... just to avoid the extra step of cutting up the flowers (if you want). I'll definitely link to this on Dollar Store Crafts in a few weeks. You are on a roll!!

  18. I loved using a glue gun when I was a kid. This is yet another reason to buy one as an adult, I'm sure I could find a lot of use for it.

  21. I love it! When I first glanced at the picture, I figured you had to "burn" the edges of fabric to make the petals...but you actually used silk petals! I wouldn't have thought to spray paint it all. Great idea!

  22. Am currently in the process of making this. I'm waiting for the spray paint to dry on the clutch and on petals. FYI: wear gloves!
