DIY: Polka Dot Clutch

It's official. I'm obsessed with polka dots. In the last month, I've bought a blouse, a dress, and a pair of shorts - each imprinted with dots. And it seems I'm not the only one with love for the perky spots - check out these awesome bags from another MJ I love = Marc Jacobs.

 (if you want to buy these bags, I found them all here, but seriously, why buy when you can diy?)

These bags have inspired my next project: the polka dot zippered clutch! If you want my tutorial on how to make the zippered clutch, you can find it here. And if you want another idea for how to make a clutch super cute with paint, go here.

This is seriously the easiest project ever - I was hoping for something more complicated to really take me away from all the homework and studying I've been doing lately (finals are in a week), but turns out, it took me longer to find pictures and links for the Marc Jacobs bags above than it did for me to actually make my own.


All you need is:
A clutch
Paint (I chose white, you can choose whatever color you want!)
A dotted paint brush (I got a super cheap one from JoAnns)
Some Adele music and a cheery disposition.

Straightforward/You-don't-really-need-my-help Instructions?:
Using the dotted pain brush, ummm, dot the clutch with paint. Wait to dry, flip over and do the other side.

See! I told you how easy it was. And if you mess up? Use a sharpie.

Seriously. So. Easy.

Happy DIY-ing!!!
