Into the fall / DIY - Lanvin/Burberry inspired clutch

 

Hello everyone, this outfit was inspired by fall and its colorful, vibrant pallet, and today's DIY was inspired by Lanvin / Burberry Prorsum collection, to be exact Lanvin accessories and Burberry Prorsum bags. They accessorised their collections with animal belts and handbags. I decided to make something in between, Lanvin's idea of cat/panther accessorised with jewels on the belts and Burberry Prorsum golden animals that decorate handbags and clutches:



Lanvin belt


Burberry Prorsum clutch
 
 





For this DIY you will need:
1. Clutch, I bought one at Staples for $20



2.  Brush Brass PURSE Feet Nail heads Spike Studs , I bought 30 pieces for $3 at www.etsy.com


3.Plastic animals toy set , purchased at Kmart for $7





4. Fourtud earrings, and 1 charm or bead for animal decor


5. Glue, preferably "Gorilla" it glues everything and permanently
6. And paint in golden tones, I chose venetian gold and gold rich espresso


Steps:
1. First, take off the cover from the toy animal set, cut the bottom part and then paint the lion in venetian gold paint, let it dry, then add one layer of gold rich espresso, and after it is dry, add few brushstrokes/touches of venetian gold color.
2. Then pass through lion's eyes two stud earrings and two more through its ears, they can be smaller than those for eyes. You can pick the same color earrings for both eyes and ears, I chose violet for its eyes and blue for ears. Also I decided to put a small handbag charm into his mouse, I glued it, but you can choose the style from Lanvin collection, and glue a bead into the mouse, just make sure it is in the right size.
Then take the lion, and holding it in the center of your clutch  trace it around with pencil, so you see where the lion is going to be positioned, and how to place your spike studs around it.

3. For clutch decor, I had 30 spike studs. I marked a tiny dots in the pattern I wanted , using a pencil, and then made holes and put each spike stud through holes.




On the inside there was a pocket, the other side of the spike studs is not visible, it is covered inside by the pocket.

4. Put a good amount of "Gorilla" glue onto the bottom part of the lion's head and glue it to the purse, press and hold for at least a minute.

The clutch is ready.

  35. This is so cool! You need to put the Pinterest pin on your blog so people can pin the idea. You'd get lots more people visiting if you were to do that. You have great ideas.
