10 Latest and Coolest DIY Phone Cases

by JingruWong 15 Feb 2022

Phones are expensive and worth protecting, but with what? Store bought cases can be bland and uninspiring. Beautiful phone cases can cost more than you're willing to spend.

While some courageous souls might opt to go caseless, we're all about skinning your device with a DIY phone case. No matter your level of crafting, you'll be able to find a case here that is both affordable and entirely do-able to recreate.

1、Marbleize a Clear Case

Have you ever tried to marbelize your nails? This DIY project is much easier to recreate without a huge mess. To make this phone case, drop nail polish in a bowl of water and swirl. When the marbling on the surface of the water is to your liking, dip the case. For best results, use three complimentary nail polish shades.

2、Cross Stitch a Fun Pattern

Want a case that will be the subject of conversation every time you're caught on your phone? Add a little thread. This project is a smart way to combine the age-old craft of cross stitching with modern technology. The best part is that the options are limited only to your creativity. To make this DIY phone case, first purchase a blank cross stitch case. Next, create a design on your own or look up smaller scaled patterns to follow.

3、Add Bold Patterns With Washi Tape

For a bold and contemporary phone case, add some geometric details. To do this as simply as possible, use tape. Washi tape is still a popular way to add fun details to craft projects relatively inexpensively. To recreate this look, head to your local craft store and pick up three different colors or patterns. If you're having trouble, look at color palettes online to get inspired.

4、Cover Your Phone With a Bohemian Tapestry

All day texting can be hard on the hands when your phone case is hard and has blunt edges. This DIY case adds a soft and thick piece of tapestry to the back, which will make the phone much more comfortable to hold.

5、Add Some Glitter

If you're one of the many that ordered a rose gold iPhone, you may have experienced the upsetting feeling when you realized the metallic backing would be covered up by your case. Many people opted to either leave their phone caseless or purchase a clear case instead. Clear cases lack personality, so this DIY works to show off the color of your smartphone but also adds some glitz into the mix.

6、Change Out Your Design With Craft Paper

Clear phone cases are perfect for crafters because they make it simple to change out your case as often as you change your purse. If you're into scrapbooking, take a look through your paper stash and pick out a few designs you like. If you don't have a paper stash, you could also repurpose old wrapping paper, tissue paper, or an old greeting card.

7、Print Off Designs From Your Favorite Graphic Designers

If you don't have anything in the house that you could use as a case, consider printing a pattern from the internet. Many graphic designers have released free graphics and patterns that are perfectly scaled for phone cases.

8、Create a Case Using Paint Chips

Another option for a bright DIY phone case is to head to a local hardware store and pick up some paint swatches. Create a template and cut the swatch to size. Cut out a hole for the camera, place in a transparent phone case, and voilà. Your very own customized phone case.

9、Experiment With Pressed Flowers

Pressed flowers are used to make an array of craft projects, but did you ever think to use them as a focal point on your smartphone? Some pressed flower cases protect the petals by gluing them to the inside of a clear phone case. This project uses an opaque white case instead, which really makes the petals pop. The exterior is hardened using a resin mixture.

10、Make a Tiny Piece of Art Using Watercolors

Artists and crafters alike will appreciate this simple but impactful phone case project. Grab a piece of medium weight white paper and pick an art medium. This case art was created using watercolors, but markers would have a similar impact. If you doubt your artistic abilities, consider cutting out a page from an adult coloring book, coloring it to your heart's desire and using that as your phone case.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
