I have Halloween dresses, shirts, and shoes, but not a single Halloween purse! I’ve almost purchased a few but haven’t found the *perfect* bag yet. (And if I’m being honest, I have way too many purses already!) My solution? I dug through my purses to find a plain one that I could embellish with vinyl! I love how this project turned out.

This purse had been given to my daughter, and it might be from a girl’s department somewhere. Any kind of vinyl or smooth plastic purse will be perfect for this project. You don’t want to choose a purse that has texture or is fabric. Vinyl adheres best to a super smooth, glass like surface.

  1. Cut the vinyl pieces from the correct colors: white for the background and dots, red for the hair, etc. Use the photos as a guide, or choose your own colors!
  2. Weed the vinyl and separate the elements.
  3. Wipe the purse to remove dust and fingerprints.
  4. Use transfer tape to place each element on the purse. Start with the base, then add each of the pieces. I put my hand inside the bag to keep it from collapsing when I transferred the vinyl. You could also stuff it with towels to make the side more rigid.

Isn’t it fun? I love how adding a few vinyl cuts immediately transformed this boring purse. I can’t wait to find more purses to decorate for the holidays!
