Colourful Purse Charms (Zipper Pulls)

| | |

So, I finally get to share these colourful and oh so simple Purse Charms!! What are purse charms? Well.. they are lovely little charms or “things” to hang on your every day purse. Make a whole set and change them each day. A super fun way to decorate your backpack for back to school!

DIY Purse Charms - make these easy charms in any colour and bead combination to make them just right for you. Great as gifts too
Making backpack charms since October 2015

Today’s purse charms are made with colourful wool and lovely wooden beads, however, exchange them for gorgeous beads and fine yarn and you can blingify your purse or handbag as much as you need. I think these also make great gifts that you can make for friends and family  – personalise the colours, beads and textures to suit individual needs and tastes.

Of course the purse charms also double up nicely as key rings too! So use them as you wish!

Remember, I LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing what you make, do share it on Instagram and tag @redtedart or use the #redtedart hashtag!!
