Let's face it, we all get tired of our handbags from time to time ... that's why we usually end up buying new ones! It's always fun to sport a new accessory, but it's not fun spending a lot of money on it. That's why we're big fans of upcycling our old handbags or thrift store finds that only cost a few bucks! In this example we used Aleene's Super Fabric Adhesive to embellish a simple purse with gems and studs, but you could try adding any embellishment you're into, like lace, buttons, crystals and so much more!
- Leather, vinyl or fabric handbag
- Assorted flat-backed studs and crystals
- Tweezers (optional)
Make sure surface of purse is clean and dry. Place gems and studs on purse in desired pattern.
Carefully pick up each stud/gem and place a small dot of Super Fabric Adhesive on the backside. Press back in place on purse and let dry completely. Tip: Tweezers are a great tool for helping pick up smaller items like studs and crystals.
Show off your upcycled handbag while out and about!
