Craft: Glamour-licious Backpack

Craft: Glamour-licious Backpack

Ages school-age

Fashion is your passion. The classroom is your runway. And this oh so fabulous backpack is the must-have accessory for the well-dressed glamour princess. Just watch out for the paparazzi.

What you'll need

  • Backpack
  • Black fabric marker with a wide tip
  • Feather boa
  • Rhinestones
  • Earrings
  • Fabric glue
  • Embellishing glue

How to make it

Glamour-licious Backpack step 1

1. Using a fabric marker, draw zebra stripes on the backpack. It really helps if the fabric marker has a fat tip so the coloring goes much faster. When drawing the stripes, vary their size and direction. They should be slightly curvy rather than straight up and down. But remember, they don’t have to be perfect, either. No two zebra stripe patterns are alike, so yours can be totally different as well.

2. Cut a piece of feather boa long enough to wrap around the top and sides of the backpack. Apply craft glue to the backpack first and then press the boa onto the backpack. The boa might move around a bit before the glue dries, so work a section at a time to make sure the boa is secure. With adult supervision, you can use hot glue, which will dry much faster, but don’t press down onto the boa with your fingers. They don’t call it hot glue for nothing. Instead, use a pencil or ruler to push down on the boa.

3. It’s looking pretty chic already. Let’s up the glam factor with some bling. Spell out a word like ‘DIVA” with rhinestones and apply them to the pocket of the backpack with embellishing glue. The good thing about this glue is that it’s permanent, but it also gives you time to adjust the rhinestones a little before the glue dries.

As if you don’t have enough sparkle, attach some earrings to the zipper pulls to complete your glamour girl look. Of course, don’t use expensive earrings here. It’s good to be cheap and chic.
