When H&M asked us to DIY a boho-inspired item for their summer issue, découpage was the first thing that came to mind. Honestly, does it get any better than customizing a simple handbag with a brilliant floral print? However you create it, it’ll be satisfying to know that you’ve designed yourself a one of a kind bag!

You’ll need:

Start by taping off the edges and hardware of the handbag.

Squeeze a dollop of colored craft paint into a small disposable container. Apply a layer of paint to the desired section.

Allow the first layer to dry completely. Apply another coat or two.

While the paint dries, carefully cut out a handful of flowers from the fabric.

Arrange them onto the painted section of the bag. Glue the flowers on with Mod Podge and seal them by applying another layer on top.

Remove the painter’s tape when the Mod Podge has dried clear and your floral handbag is complete!
