Colorful Clutch Bag with Tassels – DIY Hello friends and happy Friday. I’m looking forward to the weekend and taking advantage of discounted flowers at the grocery store since they’re usually discounted after Valentine’s day.  Speaking of Valentine’s day, I hope you had a great one.
Today I wanted to share with you this super fun little clutch that I painted a couple of weeks ago. It’s bright and colorful and I think it’s going to be a conversation starter.
I had so much fun painting it and though I used very happy colours, you can tone it down and maybe just do black and white or more neutral colours etc.
I used a combination of DecoArt Premium acrylics and Americana acrylics and painted a plain straw clutch I found at Michaels.

I decided to paint random colors and a white in between to tone it down a bit… I then added lots of little tassels to complete it and….

I just love it! I can’t wait to rock it in the spring and summer time.  This kinda reminds me of another project I did a couple of years ago…

    I love it and would make mine very colourful just like that too! For the tassels, is that just embroidery thread or is it
    yarn? I’m in Canada , so I hope our Michael’s have straw clutches like that. You are so inspiring! Thankyou!

    Such a great project – I never would have guessed it was a DIY. Can you share where your striped long sleeved shirt is from in the top photo? It’s lovely.

    I love this clutch! My problem is a clutch is just that, a clutch. I know I would leave it somewhere like in a store or somewhere else. I would do exactly what you did because I am all about being colorful. You did a beautiful job.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough
    people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very
    happy I stumbled across this in my search
    for something relating to this.
