Well, hello there! How are you? It’s nice to come back!
And with a “Do It Yourself” tutorial! Wanna learn how you can give a new look to your cellphone case?
You just need a few minutes, some washi tape and other materials that I’m sure you have wandering around your home.

washi tape

So, here we go!

MATERIALS:
– washi tape *to cover and decorate your cellphone case
– old cellphone cover *to renew it
– plain white glue (or mod podge if you have it) *to protect the case and make it waterproof
– cutter *to cut and open the holes in your cellphone case
– small container *to put some glue
– soft brush *to spread the glue onto the case

STEPS:
1 – take the plastic case out of your old cellphone cover (mine was fake leather, bought online);
2 – clean and scratch all the glue that the plastic case might still have on it;
3 and 4 – cover it with washi tape (I used two kinds of washi tape, both from IKEA, but you can use whatever you want and cover the case however you want);

Between steps 4 and 5 I forgot to take a picture, but it’s when you make the holes with the cutter in your cellphone case to match the buttons/camera sockets.

5 – using the soft brush spread glue onto the cellphone case. Wait a couple of hours and apply a second layer of glue to it. Let it dry completely and there you have it! A brand new case!

Note: if you already have a plastic case, skip steps 1 and 2 :)

(Podéis leer este artículo en Español aquí. ♦ Podem ler este artigo em Português aqui.)

Do you remember what I first did with my plain Ikea Lack side tables? Here, take a look! Well, I got bored of them, besides, they didn’t match anymore with the living room decoration. So, I undid what I had and transform them again! This time I used Ikea wall paper, a stapler, a pair of scissors and some washi tape. Now, I just have to add some wall decoration and some curtains and my living room will be complete! YAY!
