Let’s face it; our world revolves around our smartphones. Have you ever accidentally left your phone at home or had it lost or stolen? And how did that make you feel? Empty? Like half a person? Yep. Since our phones are practically an extension of ourselves, it makes sense to accessorize them and make them look pretty!
10 Phone Makeover Projects Video + Individual Projects on Descriptions
We have to say, this makeshift crochet loom made from bobby pins and a paper cup is absolutely ingenious! Just make sure you have a cup that fits your phone snugly and then crochet away to make your cute little phone sock. It’s a great alternative if you find the regular covers to be too bulky, but still want to protect your phone from scratches when it’s bungling about in your handbag.
If you’re the type who constantly listens to music or the radio with your earphones in, you might as well transform the boring cord into something of an accessory. All you need is a bunch of soft plastic beads (like Perler beads), a pair of scissors and some patience as you cut them open one-by-one. Then you can arrange them in whatever color pattern you want. Apart from looking lovely, these beads also prevent your headphones from getting tangled – pretty and useful!
Phone Case – Marbling Stickers
We love the psychedelic look that you get with the water marbling technique – it’s a firm favorite with the nail art lovers. After leaving your designs to dry for a few hours, you can simply pick them out of the water, trim to neaten, and then stick them straight them onto your cover. Pure genius.
4 & 5. Phone Case – Washi Tape
Washi tape has become somewhat of a new obsession since it comes in so many different patterns that inspire a plethora of decorating ideas, so you’re likely to find it in any craft store. Your possibilities are pretty much endless with this tape, and since it’s easy to peel off, you can update your designs as frequently as you like.
Phone Case – Duct Tape
With just a few seconds and one piece of wide scotch tape, you can take your phone cover from drab to minimalist fab! Just find a pattern or solid color that you really like, and voilà! You can even use duct tape to create a bow embellishment for your phone.
Phone Case – Stickers
Remember when you were younger and you used to collect and even trade stickers? If you’re a sentimental hoarder type, whip out your old sticker book; otherwise, go buy some cute, fun and cheap stickers to jazz up that phone! You could even design your very own sticker to personalize your phone.
Phone Case – Googly Eyes
Yes, googly eyes! They’re adorable. You just need a bit of super glue to attach these little peepers to the back of your phone.
9 & 10. Phone Case – Customized Picture
This last idea is our favorite because you it’s fully customizable and the most personal of them all. With a transparent phone case you can print out any image that you want and simply cut it to size to fit the case. You can create your own patterns, collages, or simply use photos of your friends or cute little pets. Love it!
