Spruce Up A Purse The Easy Way


I love buying vintage bags. I frankly have so many they may just topple me to the floor one day in a tragic hoarder death incident. Anywayzzz, here’s a really easy DIY to spruce up any new, well loved or vintage bag!

What you’ll need:

  • A Purse
  • A Fantastic scarf, preferably in a square shape and in a light silky fabric so it flows and is not too heavy
  • Some vintage or broken chain pieces (i like to comb antique hardware stores like Liz’s Antique Hardware in LA or you can use your old broken necklaces that you don’t know what to do with!)
  • A large-ish key ring

Do It:

  • Tie your scarf in a messy knot around one side of the handle. Tie it in the middle so the four corners hang oh so nicely.
  • Loop your key ring around the handle and then tie, loop or connect your various chain pieces to it.

Voila! A total boho-chic bag that may just jangle when you walk. Love that!

    One important issue is that when you are searching for a education loan you may find that you will need a co-signer. There are many circumstances where this is true because you might discover that you do not employ a past credit standing so the mortgage lender will require you have someone cosign the credit for you. Good post.

    Excellent article!! My partner and I talk from the viewpoint of musical art, nonetheless it relates to almost everything. I simply saturate myself with the most art as possible, and when writing my very own I just attempt to let it all go. I’d like the actual effect as well as mindset, however , not the particular boundries and also restrictions. It seems that as most of folks age and turn into “professionals” at stuff, these people shed their creativity and also their ignite. The “breakthrough” is finished. Being 49 myself, I have been able to steer clear of this particular thing, and every day of my life is a lot more thrilling because of it!
