DIY Sequins Camera Strap

With smart phones and other mobile devices gaining popularity by the second, it is becoming a rare sight to see people taking pictures with actual cameras… and it’s kind of a bummer! They may not be as sleek and portable as an iPhone or iPad, but nothing compares to the awesome-quality photos they take, especially the real-deal DLSRs out there! You know what’s even more awesome? The fact that the camera strap itself can be customized a countless amount of ways!

A dazzling, sequined camera strap will make you feel more like you’re carrying around a fashionable accessory than anything else. Here’s a no-sew DIY that puts a fresh, stylish touch on something that creates memories that last a lifetime…and if you’re spotted rocking one of these, you’ll surely be remembered, too! Smile!

  • Your camera

  • Liquid stitch
  • Cotton webbing or thick ribbon
  • Sequins ribbon about 3 ft long
  • How to:
    1. Attach clips to camera
    2. Add jump rings to clips
    3. Cut cotton webbing/ribbon to match the length of your sequins ribbon
    4. Fold over the end of the cotton webbing/ribbon through the D ring and apply liquid stitch generously
    5. Use binder clips to hold it in place until dry and repeat steps 4 and 5 on opposite end
    6. Once dry, apply liquid stitch and begin gluing the sequins ribbon to the cotton webbing/ribbon. Be sure to wrap it around the D ring so none of the webbing is visible.
    7. Continue to glue the sequins ribbon the entire length of the strap and repeat step 6 on the opposite end.

    Last but not least, snap away in style! Who else thinks this is an awesome gift for all of the shutterbugs out there?
