DIY Embellished Clutch Bag

So today is our first post within our series of DIY tutorials that with have done in collaboration with Disney working up to the release of their new film 'Maleficent', starring Angelina Jolie. We are working with Disney, and contributing to their online Maleficent Hub, for the next 6 weeks. So we have lots of exciting things coming your way. Head on over to the hub and take a peek at lots of exclusive content! Enjoy!

A good staple clutch bag is a definite must-have. I have given my plain and boring black clutch a bit of a make over for a new lease of life. I have added green, gold and silver gems for a gothic glam look inspired by the wonderful Maleficent! 

This is a super easy little make.  All you need is a plain clutch bag, a selection of rhinestones and superglue.

1. Lay out the rhinestones a pattern on the clutch. I have gone for a random arrangement of different sized squares set out in rows for a geometric look. You could take a photo of your design on your phone to copy from. Stick the rhinestones down with a small amount of super glue on each.
2. Once they are completely dry, add some extra detail on the back of the clutch. I have gone for a line of rhinestones across the bottom. Simple but effective!
3. Leave everything to dry and secure in place. And thats it! Your gothic glam clutch is complete!

Lots of love,
