Feather Box Clutch DIY Inspired by Charlotte Olympia

This project had been sitting on the back burner until I bought the clear box for my pool clutch and decided to get a second one for this project (since I was paying so much for shipping, I threw in a second one to make it more worth my while). Overall I like how this turned out, but I’m curious to see how painting feathers on it would look because these ones I glued on look a bit more wet than I’d like. So if you try it out, let me know if that’s a better method!

Follow along to see how I made this— in a few very easy steps.

Charlotte Olympia’s Pandora Feather Perspex Box Clutch $995

Materials: feathers, 5×7″ clear box, mod podge, E6000, medium paint brush, spider brooch with clasp removed, nail polish

Paint your brooch with colors to match your feathers.

Lay down a feather and paint mod podge over it, making sure to wiggle the brush a bit to get glue under it between the feather and the box.

Do this with a few feathers (you can use all one color if you want) all over the box laying in different directions. Let dry, then glue down the thick feather ends with E6000 so all parts of the feather are secure. Glue your spider brooch on the top of your box with E6000 and wait for it to dry.

You’re all done and ready to take your creation out on the town! Easy, right?

      Thank you! My friend said it was hideous and I already wasn’t 100% happy with how it came out so I wasn’t even going to post it! And I was sad I couldn’t find the right shade of orange feathers so I ended up going with purple… glad I did :)

    I love this, is so cute! I haven’t tried it yet, would you consider using a spray adhesive..?? then maybe a final mod podge coat?

      Yes, you might be able to do a spray adhesive (away from the clutch) and then press it on and give it a mod podge coat. The mod podge though, does a great job at keeping the feathers on and is probably all you need. If you try it, let me know!
