{how to : gold glitter camera strap}

glitterati-hed
camera-strap2

. . . there is gold and glitter everywhere lately, on ankle boots, and fingernails, and even above fluttery lashes, and ever since gold-leafing the coffee table a few summers ago, can not seem to stop enveloping everything in bits of gold, and so, was thrilled to come across this very fun and insanely easy idea . . .

......................................................................................................

{you will need:}
course glitter // mod podge // fabric glue // rhinestones


camera-strap3

S T E P O N E
mix mod podge & glitter, adding one part course glitter to two parts mod podge in a small bowl

S T E P T W O
brush on to strap and let dry

S T E P T H R E E
apply a second layer and let dry

S T E P F O U R
you may wish to apply a third layer [optional]

S T E P F I V E
apply rhinestones to the ends of the strap, with fabric or crazy glue

S T E P S I X
and that's it! easy, easy [a glimpse of the finished project here]

Thanks! This is fabulous! So much better than a plain old strap.

Oh WOW, and only for this I would be myself a new camera!

Oh my goodness! This is perfect. As of right now I don't own a camera with a strap like this (hope to soon once I save enough money!) but I wish I did so I could do this...it's perfect.
I adore glitter....anywhere!

Now that's a pretty camera!

I LOVE this idea and can't wait to do it. Glitter and rhinestones are definitely what my Rebel's strap has been missing.

This is a clever idea :) I own a Canon 550D cam and I should apply this to my strap. Thank you for sharing this idea. It looks beautiful :)

this is a great Idea, which I had on my mind as well for some time now, BUT with another style & adding different material for DIY Camera Strap...perhaps might do its someday soon on my Blog! x

I am in LOVE with this! I am borrowing this idea (with credit to you and funkytime) to share on my blog and try to recreate. I have been looking for a camera strap alternative for a bit now.

Hi, love this so much! SO sassy. Got a new camera for Christmas and already have all of the supplies to do this. Question, does the glitter fall off of the strap at all?

Adrianna Traxler [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I can't wait to try this..but does the glitter transfer?

{this is glamorous} [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Ellie Sylvia & Adrianna Traxler -- because it's mixed with mod podge, the glitter shouldn't transfer, but you could try spraying the finished strap with shellac or hairspray if you're concerned -- let me know how it goes!
