Update a Clutch with Faux Beads Using Scribbles Paint

Happiness Is Creating - DIY Dimensional painted clutch

I was recently at a street fest, wandering past the vendors that were set-up in the streets and checking out all of their goods.  Now, I don’t usually shop at street fests since I am typically there to enjoy the live music and a cocktail or two. ;)  However, at this street fest, I spied a fun Aztec style clutch that was super cute.  I walked over to get a closer look at it and saw it was only $8.  I honestly couldn’t pass up the price for this fun little clutch, so I bought it.  When items are this cheap, it’s hard for me to say “NO!”.

My initial plan was to use my street fest clutch as my go-to clutch this Summer.  After looking at the design for a bit, I felt it could use a little bit of color.  I saw a really cool clutch (very similar to mine) that had pretty bead work on it.  Since I have zero patience to actually sit down and add tiny seed beads to anything, I wanted to come up with an easy workaround that would not test my patience.

Do you remember Puffy Paint? I used to use this stuff on t-shirts and sweatshirts to create my own New Kids on the Block fashion statement (yes, people this was before the other boy bands emerged).  Since Puffy Paint is dimensional, I thought it would be the perfect solution to create little “beads”.  Puffy Paint wins again!  This time around it’s a little more fashionable than my NYKOTB outfits. :)

Supplies:

Step 1: Use your orange puffy paint to create dots of paint on your clutch.  I chose to go over the black part of the Aztec design on my clutch.

Step 2: I added my orange dots to all of the inside black aztec designs and let them dry.

Step 3: I then added blue dots around the outside of all of my orange dots.

Step 4: Once the paint was dry on the back side of my clutch, I flipped it over and added my painted bead design to the back.

All you need to do is added your accessories to your clutch and you are in business!

    Oh I love this idea. I am racking my brain to think of other things that would be lovely with puffy paint bead work.
