DIY Inspiration - Phone Cases

diy phone case inspiration

I've got another inspiration post for you today this time focused on customised phone cases. Although all of the tutorials below are for iPhones, most could be adapted to suit whichever phone model you use. Here are 5 of my favourite ideas...

1. Needlepoint iPhone Cases (via The Purl Bee)
Cross-stitch phone cases? Yes please! The cases over at The Purl Bee were created using Leese Designs iPhone Cases which have cross-stitch grids on them so you can create your own designs. I really love this unique idea and think they would make great gifts!

2. Painterly iPhone Cases (via 52 Weeks Project)
These cases have a sweeping ombre effect created using acrylic pints and a large brush. With their bright colours and simple concept these striking cases really caught my eye. If you don't have acrylic paints, try using nail polishes to paint a design onto your case instead.

3. Tribal Print iPhone Case (via Unexpected Expectations)
This amazing, intricate design was created using everyone's favourite - Sharpies! Denise has used a whole range of colours and Aztec/Tribal inspired patterns to cover her iPhone case and the result looks beautiful.

4. Starry iPhone Case (via Whimsey Box)
This super simple idea looks very effective and is perfect for the festive time of year. All you need to make your own is some spray glue and star sequins. Instead of covering the whole case Alicia has sprinkled on the stars, creating a beautiful effect.

5. iPhone 3 Cases (via Even Artichokes Have Hearts)
Finally, we have another project from the lovely Skye who used pretty wrapping paper and washi tape to create inserts to use with a clear case. I love that you can make lots of these and switch up your design whenever you want! I also love these map cases (from maps.com) which use the same technique.

Which idea is your favourite?
