DIY Feather Clutch

A while ago we shared our Carnival inspiration with you, and ever since we’ve been dreaming of fun feather trims and shiny sequins. We wanted to make a DIY incorporating some of our incredible feather trims, so we created this lovely feather clutch that would be perfect for a night on the town. It’s very simple, but the final result is oh-so-chic! Take a look for yourself and let us know what you think.

Supplies: a clutch or makeup bag, scissors, E6000 glue, 2 yds feather fringe, 2 ft sequin trim

The exact feather trim we used is item #30865 (in Spruce), and the exact sequin trim is item #54829. Both trims are available by contacting customer service at 1-800-9-MJTRIM or [email protected]

1. Measure out the feather trim so it wraps around the clutch once (both the front and the back). Cut one piece to this length. Cut two more pieces that are the same length, so you have three pieces of trim that will wrap all the way around the clutch.

2. Lay the feather trim down on the clutch so the feathers are hanging over the bottom of the clutch a bit. Then use the glue to slowly glue the trim in place, section by section. Glue it all the way around the clutch and trim any excess feathers.

3. Add another layer of feather trim on top, so it covers up the top of the first layer of fringe. Glue it in place, all the way around the clutch.

4. Add the top and final layer of feathers at the very top of the clutch. Glue it all the way around and let dry. 

5. To add some extra pizzaz, glue down your sequin trim at the top of the clutch. Let it dry then you’re all done!
