DIY Personalized Cell Phone Cover
I make this one for my friend Maggie for Christmas, she has an iPhone 5 but you can easily make one of these for any phone.
Maggie had been dreaming of the covers with bows on them for quite some time so that is what I decided to make her for Christmas. You could make one any way you like, without bows and with different colours, or an entirely different design. Below is how to make this one so just change what you like to get your own personalized phone cover.
- Blank cell phone cover for your descired type of phone. I used a clear one that looked like this
- Paint – I used Martha Stewart’s all-purpose paint in black, gold and gold glitter
- Glue and a plastic bow (or any other embellishments you might want)
First I covered the clear case in two coats of black paint using my pouncer and let that dry. Once the black was dry I did VERY light coats of gold and didn’t go as far down with each coat. In the end I did 3 VERY light coats with the gold so that it would have a faded effect.
This is what it looked like at that point:
After the gold was dry I added another 2 VERY light coats of the gold glitter just to give it a little sparkle and then let that dry. Then I glued on the bow and it was ready to go!
I hope you like it! I have a couple more blank phone covers so there will probably be more to come!
