Happy #DIYRunway!

Today we’re going to be making a little piece of art that will gracefully turn any outfit into a statement. Some of you have probably noticed that I’ve been doing much less DIY projects both on the blog and Youtube. I decided that I’m only going to create a project if I see something that truly inspires me. As soon as I saw a photo of the Emilio Pucci box clutch I simply knew I had to recreate it for you guys. Enjoy!

For this project you will need:
1) A variety of beads, rhinestones and natural stones. I purchased mine at Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. |
2) A nice durable jewelry glue. I would recommend the Jewelry glue by Martha Stewart or E6000.
3) An old box clutch. I purchased mine on sale from H&M for only $8.
4). Dimensional Magic Mod Podge (Optional)

Step-by-step Instructions:
1). Organize all your beads for easy access and use an image for reference. You can download it HERE.
2). Use a durable jewelry glue or embellishing glue.
3). Glue your biggest pieces first. Those will be your point of reference for building your design.
4). Continue layering the jewels/stones creating the desired design leaving as little gaps as possible.
5). Use tweezers for smaller beads. Makes life much easier.
6). For the remaining gaps fill them with Dimensional Magic and sprinkles seed beads on top.

As always video tutorial is provided!’
