DIY Watermelon Bag

Hello everyone!

This post contains affiliate links

One of my favorite summer treats is watermelon! I am convinced that it is the perfect food, sweet, juicy, messy, and pink, lol.

So I decided to make my very own watermelon bag to wear and show the world my love of watermelons.

Materials:

  • Bag- I got mine from Sammy dress about a year ago, but here is a similar one on Amazon: Bag
  • Paint- I used Folk art acrylic paint, but any acrylic paint should do the trick: Paint
  • Paint pen- for drawing the seeds: paint pen

 

Instructions:

Here is the bag before any painting. It is a good bag and just fine the way it is, but I was determined to have a watermelon bag, lol.

I found these 3 great colors from Folk Art in Pink Melon, Citrus Green and Classic Green. I thought they were the perfect watermelon color!diy watermelon bag

but before you start to paint measure your bag. You to make sure that you have about 2/3 of be bag in pink and the rest in green. But this is just a guess, use your eye to make a good judgement as to how much of each color.

Then start painting. I started with the pink then went on to the greens. I painted in broad strokes and left the strokes in each of the colors as I painted. I didn’t want it too blended, I was going for a casual vibe. You can always blend more if that is  your style.

You can leave it with out the seeds, but I thought the bag needed them. I just painted them on using a paint pen.

I am loving how it turned out! What fruit bags are you going to make this summer?

Update your handbags, purses, and clutches!

So I bought these really cheap handbags. It came in a set of 3 bags. There was a clutch, cross body bag and a handbag. They are fine on their own, but a little boring, so I decided to fix that.

With a little help from my clearance statement necklaces that I found at Walmart and a little glue I was able to update my purses and create a whole new look.

Here is the clutch. Love.

It is easy to do, here is what you need

Materials:

~ handbag or purse that needs a little updating

~ glue that will work on metal (I used Aleene’s jewelry and metal glue)

~ Statement necklaces that you can take apart or jewelry or bling that you want to add to your purse.

 

Clutch instructions:

Here is the clutch looking all boring and sad because it didn’t have any embellishments on it.

Whoa! Too many embellishments! This statement necklace is certainly making a statement. I am not sure what that statement is, but it is making it. I decided to take it apart and only use 1 rose. I will use the rest in another project.

Much better. I think it looks great! BTW, don’t you love my red couch as a background color Smile I think it adds awesomeness to the pictures.

Cross body bag instructions:

Once again a sad, boring cross body bag.

I added this necklace to the bag. Much better, I think. If you can’t find a necklace like this on it is easy to make with a jewel and different lengths of chain.

I think it looks ok, but I think it can look better.

As  you can see this project is pretty easy, but it adds so much to your purses and handbags. Just make sure you glue on everything really well and let it dry completely before you use it.
