DIY: Jeweled Embellished Clutch

If you know me well enough, you know I love a good DIY. However, most times, they're very time consuming and I don't always have time for that. I was doing some Pinterest browsing last week and came across a DIY with little effort but big results --my fav!

What you'll need:
  • Craft glue
  • Wood craft sticks [optional]
  • Pliers [or something that will detach the necklace from the chain]
  • Necklace
  • Extra rhinestones/embellishments [optional]
  • Clutch
I happened to have a necklace from H&M that I never wore and was only $5 so it was the perfect choice. Plus, Katie wore it on Vanderpump Rules enough times for it to be over played.
The clutch I used was an inexpensive one I already had from TJMaxx. If you don't have a clutch already, just keep an eye out in clearance sections [H&M always has clutches on sale!]. You might find one that's totally boring on it's own but will look fabulous once you fancy it up! Same goes for the necklace, if you don't own one that you are willing to never wear again, look for an inexpensive one that you might not wear as a necklace but would look great on a clutch!
This DIY was completed in twenty minutes and three simple steps.

Step 1: Detach necklace from chain [or in my case, fabric] with pliers.

Step 2: Lay necklace on clutch and figure out desired placement for necklace and/or rhinestones.

Step 3: Glue necklace and/or rhinestones on clutch and let dry.

Voila! Making two old items new again :D
 Super easy, right?! The hardest part for me was NOT adding too many rhinestones. I can't wait to actually show this off in an outfit post so you can see the true colors [the lighting was terrible on Saturday]!
Now it's your turn ;) I'd love to see what you create!
