I’ve been wanting a blinged-out, bedazzled, crystalized cell phone case for a long time. However, I was having a really tough time finding a case that I really liked. The more I searched, the more frustrated I was getting. All of the cases I saw online or in-store were not to my liking (either not a color I liked, or not a design I liked). I found a few online shops that offered customizing services, but those options were extremely expensive. Not only were the crystalized cases I found very expensive, I was also unsure of the quality of the cases.
Soooo, I gave up on trying to find a ready-made crystalized cell phone case that I thought was “the one” & decided to make my own custom cell phone case. By doing this, I was able to choose the materials I wanted, & I was able to customize my case however I liked. Also, I found this method to be quite cost saving, & it gave me a sense of self-accompishment. Well, here’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Let’s take a look at my finished DIY project.
- pink plastic shell cover for iPhone 4/4s (color: sweet pink w/ glitter effect)
- mixed rhinestone beads
- Swarovski crystal beads
- crafting bond glue
I bought this inexpensive case from an online Japanese retailer that ships overseas to most countries. I also got all the rhinestone beads from Etsy. The Swarovski crystals came from my own private crafts supplies collection. After arranging & gluing all of the beads, I allowed the crafting glue to set & dry for at least 1 full day before using the case. Et voilà! There you go. That’s the end of it. ❤
