Ideas to decorate your clutch handbag
When you are going for a late night party, you should carry a shiny bag. Stick some rhinestone on your fabric clutch handbag to make it glitzy. Rhinestones are very shiny and can be glued very easily on the bags surface. While decorating, be sure to use glue that is made for fabrics.
You have seen many bags in boutique which are highly designed and are unique. If you want to give such effects you can use semiprecious stone for decorating. Take your bag to a local store and select cabochons for decoration. Most of such bead stores keep wide collection of stone cabochons. You can get semiprecious stone of different shapes, sizes and colors. You can either use a single big stone or you can stick several smaller ones for decoration.
Painting your bag is one more idea that can make it look unique. If your talent in painting is limited, then buy a stencil from a craft store. Use fabric paints to make your preferred designs.
You can put vintage effect on your bag by attaching brass filigree. If you are unable to purchase antique filigree then you can create one of your own. Buy filigree from a craft store and then paint it with antique solution. This will give it a metallic look. Once the paint is dry use this for decorating.
The clutch handbags can be readily used in any informal occasion.
