Crafty Creations: Revamped Clutch

Crafty Creations: Revamped Clutch

I love taking older things and making them look new again. Whether it’s reupholstering a vintage couch or revamping a dowdy clutch, giving old pieces new life is not only fun, but cost-effective too. Since color blocking is a big trend this year and I am sure quite a few of you have an old clutch or basic bag lying around, I thought it would be fun to show you how to give your bag an instant update with a few swipes of fresh paint. Watch my newest Crafty Creations video to see how you can revamp your old bag in just a few simple steps:

To recap, here’s what you will need:

  • an old clutch
  • a painter’s palette
  • paintbrushes
  • fabric paint
  • painter’s tape

    How cute!

  • Tiffani Stuart

    How cute & Totally awesome! I do wish she would’ve chosen more vibrant colors for the demonstration, however. I was expecting a bright color, to so the contrast. The beige might have been really cute in person, but it barely showed up on camera. Love the idea, though!
