DIY Neon Clutch #FreshNaturally #Shop

One of my favorite summer trends is the appearance of neon. This DIY Neon Clutch is the perfect way to add a pop of neon to any outfit for a summer chic look.

I’ve been carrying my DIY Neon Clutch around as we’ve been traveling this summer, and wanted to share some of my on-the-go essentials — like Tom’s of Maine Long-Lasting Deodorant. They’re perfect for looking refreshed, even when you’ve been chasing a two-year-old in the Texas heat.

  6. Cute Sunglasses

You can find Tom’s of Main Long-Lasting Deodorant at Whole Foods — I really like how it contains natural ingredients and still provides the protection that I need. It does not artificial colors, flavors, fragrances, or preservatives, which is awesome!

Ready to make a stylish bag to carry all your essentials? Let’s get started!

Insert a sheet of blank paper into the clutch to prevent the paint from bleeding inside.

Tape off two stripes at the bottom of the bag.
