makeover: target dollar clutch purse

We're not so big on New Year's Eve parties. We would rather stay home and eat and play games and eat and watch movies and eat. Did I mention eat? It's a snack fest around here!

But when I saw these clutch purses in the dollar section at Target, I immediately thought New Year's Eve. Just for fun when staying home. But I also thought they could do with a bit of extra fun.

So this morning I pulled out some assorted trims and my glue gun, and we made three versions:
Silver with eyelet. My sister Grace gets this one.
Sparkle black with a string of sequins. This is for Anna.
Purple with gold ruffles. This gets to be mine. I even ventured out of the house and used it today!

I love when something so simple and cheap can be so enjoyable!


  1. I actually had the silver one in my hand today! I wish I had thought of this! Just might have to run back tomorrow and get one or two! Great gift idea!

  2. Um, I am completely in love with that silver one, both as it is AND re-done! Though I'm adoring the purple one, as well. Haha. :)

  3. This is kind of genius. The purple one might have given me palpitations. I practically LIVE in the dollar section of Target. I will look with new eyes next time.

  4. CUTE!!! What a great idea!

  6. Target has a dollar section? Not here they don't sadly :( Not even the $2 Shop has those.
