Fancy Camera Strap

October 16, 2011 |  by  |  Blog, DIY, Wearable

Have you seen this gorgeous camera strap my friend Virginie made? Such a great idea to use these plastic rhinestones! I adapted her tutorial, but chose to use mainly golden glitter.

All you have to do is:

Mix Mod Podge & Glitter. Add one part course glitter to two parts Mod Podge into a small plastic bowl.

Brush on to strap and let dry. Apply a second layer. Let dry. Apply a third layer (optional).

Apply a couple of plastic rhinestones at the end of the strap with either fabric glue or crazy glue.

  1. Love this camera strap. If I can talk my husband into it (we share a camera, though I use it more), I am definitely gonna do this! Thanks for sharing your creativity :-)

  2. I love it! I have a ribbon for my camera strap but this really takes it up a notch!

  3. I love this idea! So neat! I always thought that camera straps could be a little cuter. :) I have a little clip on mine.

  4. Saw these on Skip to my Lou. So cute! I LOVE the glitter! Very creative!

  5. Adorable! Unfortunately, I have to share my Nikon with my DH and I think he would be pretty upset if I decorated the strap with glitter! I guess I will have to wait until I can get my own camera.

  13. Saw this on this is glamorous and am borrowing (with credit) as this is a must do. I hate my camera strap and this is WAY cooler than the ruffly fabric ones.

  14. Love this camera strap, I want to try it but was wondering if the glitter “sheds”?

  15. This is just to cool…..and I think I just might have to tried this…Thank you for the tutorial…..looks easy enough…..
