Summery Floral ClutchJune 17, 2014 | FILED UNDER: Flowers
You can improvise on this in so many ways by changing up the flowers and the type of purse. Here is what you’ll need:
Supplies for Flower Purse
- Old clutch or purse (thrift stores are a great source – I found mine at Goodwill for $3.99)
- Silk flowers (I used two bunches of small silk flowers. Tip: wait until they are 50% off at the craft store. I purchased mine for $5 each on sale)
- Hot glue (depending on the material of the purse you may want to use a more permanent glue like E6000)
- Wire cutters (not shown)
How to Make Flower Purse
2. Attach the flowers by putting a little dab of hot glue on the back of them and sticking them onto the purse. I started in one corner and just scattered the flowers randomly as I went along. Put them closely together so there are no gaps showing.
Update: I found that hot glue was not the best glue for this type of clutch with a metallic surface. After using it, some of the flowers separated from the purse by taking off a layer of the metallic surface with them. I am going to use a glue like E6000 for a stronger hold. Hot glue should work well for a fabric surface.
The two bunches of flowers provided just enough petals to cover the front of this purse. I left the back the plain gold. The whole project took 45 minutes and $15 to make!
