Kate Spade Inspired Glitter Clutch

DIY

I am always on the lookout for cute clutches. For me, regular sized handbags seem tedious to carry around and all the extra room quickly turns the bag into a trash receptacle. Clutches eliminate this problem; they are compact, don’t have room for anything but the essentials, and are lady-like as can be.

Enter the Kate Spade “I Kissed a Frog Multi Clutch”. I saw this on Pinterest and it was love at first sight. Unfortunately, the bag was a little out of my price range….sigh.

And so I set to work creating my own version. For you to make your very own glitter clutch you will need:

  • 1 Clutch Bag with enough surface on clasp to attach small animal figurine
  • 1 Small Animal Figurine
  • Multicolored Glitter
  • Mod Podge — Super Gloss
  • 1 Sponge Brush
  • Super Glue

Step 1:  Lay bag flat and apply Mod Podge with sponge brush.

Step 2: Sprinkle glitter liberally over Mod-Podged surface.

Allow to dry and repeat on other side.

Step 3:  Apply another layer of Mod Podge over the glitter to help prevent it from coming loose.

Step 4:  Put some super glue on the top clasp.

Step 5:  Attach your animal figurine. I used this lucky turtle from Thailand.

All done! The finished product is a girly and glamorous clutch that looks like it cost you an arm and a leg. I was very pleased with how this turned out. What do you think?

Until next time!

    It always amazes me how much money we can save when we do it ourselves. This D.I.Y. is so beginner friendly and quick. You did such a great job at recreating this clutch. Mod Podge will never fail you. I recently went to the dollar store and saw they were selling Mod Podge, let’s just say i was a kid in a candy store. It’s not expensive to begin with but you can’t beat $1.00. Now I can try this D.I.Y. out !

      Thanks so much! It really does look so close to the original and it was super easy to make! And I love Mod Podge! That is so great that you got such a deal. I think I paid like $5 at Wal Mart. Still worth it though :)
