Hope your phone is ready for a complete makeover
because today I'm going to show you 20 easy DIY phone projects that will leave you speechless! Hey Sara! You look great today. Oh, thank you! No offence but you look kind of boring. Can I pimp you up? Umm, really? OK, let's do it! The phone agrees, I'm super excited, so forget
plain phone cases and let's make 20 awesome phone DIYs. Come on! Ah, this happens to me all the time! The screen of my phone gets all scratched
when I carry it in my bag or pocket. To prevent this from happening let's make
an adorable phone pouch out of fuzzy socks! That's right โ€“ this cute pouch is made out
of a sock, no sewing required and it takes no more than a minute to make! Take a fuzzy sock of your choice – I went
for the pink one. Grab your scissors and cut the top part โ€“ which
is the part above the ankle. You need a piece that is big enough for your

Apply a stripe of hot glue along the opening
on one side of your pouch. You can even sew it if you prefer. Turn the pouch inside out and now you can
decorate it however you like! I decided to stick on a pair of googly eyes
to give a face to this fuzzy cutie. And of course who doesn't love bows! I'm sticking one in the corner of the pouch
to make it even more adorable. What an epic DIY project right? Phone pouches can be super expensive and I
bet they aren't even half as pretty as this one. Besides looking extremely cute, this phone
pouch feels so snugly! It's almost like a plushy. It will keep your phone protected from scratches
even if you throw it in the bag together with keys and other sharp objects! If you're not using a phone pouch, you definitely
need a cool case to protect your phone.

Check out this amazing beaded one! I love everything about it โ€“ the design,
the colors, the texture… It is just so unique and cool! To make it we're going to need a bunch of
beads. You know me – I'm obsessed with colors so
I went for the brightest colored beads out there. Get your pegboard ready and using a clear
phone case measure how big design you need to make. It's time to get creative! Start placing colored beads on the pegs, creating
any kind of shape or word that you like.

I decided to write LOL and I also made a huge
hot pink heart above it. If you use black beads to outline your shapes
or words, the design will turn out bolder and more cartoon-y like, which I love! Here are the last two beads so let's quickly
seal our masterpiece. Take some parchment paper, place it on top
of your work and run the iron over the entire surface. Heat will melt the beads and stick them together.

Lift the beaded creation from the pegboard
and we're ready to glue it on a clear case or any old case that you want to recycle. I'm using a glue gun for this but any kind
of glue with a good hold will work. Our new phone case is all ready, looking amazing! This is just so unique and I've never seen
something like it in a store. Also love the beaded texture and the fact
that you can literally write or draw anything using this technique. You can write your name and use the colors
that you love! Or make this case for your bestie! I'm sure anyone would be super happy to have
a gorgeous case like this. Ouch! How many times has this happened to you? Please tell me I'm not the only one who slaps
own face with a phone on a regular basis.

But this ain't happening again โ€“ we're making
our own DIY pop sockets! Did you know that you can use drawer or cabinet
knobs as pop sockets? I have this pretty glass one that will work
perfectly. All we got to do is glue it on a phone case
and we're done! I want to make my solid pink case a bit more
special and the easiest way to do this is using stickers. I especially like puffy stickers as they give
a cool texture and 3D feel to your case. I decorated mine with a bunch of little pony
stickers and it turned out super girly and adorable! The pop socket will give you a great grip
when taking selfies, recording musicallys plus it looks super pretty and sparkly. You can find an amazing selection of cool
knobs like this in stores and they are quite affordable too.

An even better idea is to use old knobs and
recycle them. And don't stress out if yours is plain and
boring like this wooden one. You can pimp it up! Color the knob with spray paint or acrylic
paint. I chose yellow as I want to make a heart face emoji on my pop socket. Now take your sharpies and decorate it however
your heart desires. I'm drawing two red hearts for the eyes and
a big happy smile to my pop socket. I decided to glue it on a transparent case
but we got to decorate it first. A great way is to use a piece of denim fabric
and a couple of iron on patches. Now it's time to attach this adorable buddy
on the case.

Take a glue gun and stick your emoji pop socket
on the denim patched case. All done and looking fabulous! The denim phone case with patches is so unique
and trendy. And the emoji pop socket makes it even more
epic! I love how these two look together. A match made in heaven! In my previous video I show how to make an
aquarium in a jar and guess what today we're making an aquarium in a phone case! I know it sounds insane but see how legit
this looks. A real aquarium with fish, water, glitter
bubbles and all that. You'll need a silicone phone case, 2 small
acetate sheets, parchment paper, blue food coloring, glitter, some fish charms, baby
oil and an iron.

Place the acetate sheets into the fold made
from a piece of baking paper and iron along the edge. Heat will melt the plastic and seal the two
sheets together. One side is done, we still have to melt these
two. When the plastic melts it turns white. That's when I know it is 100% sealed and waterproof. Before ironing the fourth edge, we need to
fill this pocket up. I'm starting with glitter! I went for these blue dots which will represent
oxygen bubbles.

Pour them into the aquarium pocket with a
help of a funnel. Prepare a small amount of baby oil and some
water. To make the water blue, mix in a bit of blue
food coloring. Now we can pour these into the acetate pocket. First comes the baby oil, which doesn't mix
with water so together they will create an awesome lava effect. Pour in the blue water and as you can see,
baby oil has lower density, therefore it floats above it. Our aquarium is not complete without these
cute fish! I actually made these charms myself using
common household items. The first fish is ready to jump into the aquarium! But it needs a friend so here comes the fish
number two. Let's pop in a little starfish as well, because
the more, the merrier, right? Time to iron the remaining top edge to seal
our aquarium pocket completely.

Shake your pocket to distribute the fish and
glitter allover the aquarium and check out how cool it turned out. Take a pen plus a ruler and sketch a rectangle
leaving about 5 millimeters wide frame along the edges. Go ahead and carefully cut along all these
lines using an exacto knife. Now we can remove the silicone rectangle in
the middle and we're left with the frame for the aquarium. So grab that beautiful aquarium pocket, which
we made earlier and place it inside the silicone frame. We did it! How creative and special is this phone case?! The only pet I ever had was a little gold
fish years ago.

Maybe that's why I like aquarium DIYs so much! But also I simply love how unconventional
and insane this is โ€“ having an aquarium on your phone โ€“ Amazing! The world has been going crazy over fidget
spinners lately and I must admit โ€“ they are actually super fun to play with. So why not having one always on hand! You can use your fidget spinner as a pop socket! How brilliant is that?! The coolest pop-socket ever for sure! Also, don't you just love this awesome galaxy
phone case? Well guess what – I'll show you how to DIY
it! Print a galaxy picture of your choice and
cut out a piece, which is of the same size as your phone.

This one fits mine perfectly. Place it in the clear case and you have the
coolest galaxy phone case ever! Let's make it even more epic by adding a fidget
pop-socket. Apply some glue on the middle of the case
and place on any kind of small rounded object. I'm just using the lid of an old lip balm. Add a bit more glue on top of that and stick
on the fidget spinner. There we have it – our galactic fidget spinner
phone case! It is so much fun to play with plus it gives
a great grip when holding your phone. I'm sure all your friends will be like what? Where did you get that! The beauty of DIYโ€“ing! You can make so much cooler stuff than you
could ever buy in stores! Another crazy awesome idea for a DIY pop socket
is using a fake flower! I'm using daisies because they're one of my

You will also need a little suction cup like
this one. Apply a blob of glue on the top part and place
on your flower. Now I just like to pop it on the phone case
without glue. This way you can remove it from the case any
time. However if you want to make your pop socket
more sturdy, use a bit of glue and stick it on permanently. This floral pop socket turned out super cute
and it took us no more than a minute to make. Bingo! How about making our case look like a delicious
birthday cake with a yummy pink glaze dripping down and a ton of holographic sprinkles? Umm… yes please and thank you! All you need to make this beautiful phone
case is some nail polish.

I'm starting up with hot pink! Slowly pour some of that polish, while you
keep moving across the the entire width of the phone case. You don't need to use a lot of polish at all. Let's repeat the step with a slightly lighter
pink color. Pour it across the phone and wait for the
color to drip along the case. This already looks pretty but we aren't quite
done yet. Take the lighter pink nail polish and color
the entire top part of the case like me. You may need two coats to make it completely
opaque. Now our design will look super neat and pretty. The last step is to grab any kind of glitter
or confetti polish and apply it on top of the pink. This will represent the sprinkles on the glaze.

I have holographic stripes but colorful ones
would look amazing as well! How gorgeous does it look when sprinkles catch
the light?! Wow, love it! Wait for the paint to dry and your phone is
ready to wear the most yummy looking costume ever. Cute store bought phone cases can be so expensive,
while you get plain ones for very cheap and you can customize them however you like. I love this one so much but there are more
epic phone cases coming up in this video. Just you wait! What? Ugh! Are your earphones getting tangled all the
time? Mine definitely do and I hate that! Luckily here's an epic DIY project which will
assure that our headphones will never get tangled again.

Plus they will look super cute! Stick the end of your earphones in place with
a piece of tape. Take a piece of fluffy or regular yarn and
make a knot around the cable. Grab the longer piece of yarn and make a 4
shape over the cable, lead the yarn end under the cable and up through the loop. Pull to tighten the knot. Now you need to simply repeat making these
exact knots all along your headphones. Make a 4 shape, go under the headphones, up
through the loop and tighten. If you like you can switch up the colors.

Cut away the excess yarn and continue with
a yarn of different color. I decided to alternate between the mint green
and pink. Rainbow headphones would look amazing too! Here comes my last knot so let's snip off
the excess yarn and these amazing headphones are finished. All that's left to do is to plug them into
the phone, play your favorite song and dance like nobody's watching! I'm so happy that they will never get tangled
again and that they look totally adorable. Seriously you have to give this DIY a try,
it is just pure awesomeness. Are you guys ready to make your very own squishy
phone case from scratch using only 2 ingredients?! I bet you are so let's do this! You'll need some silicone, corn starch and
optionally food coloring.

Before we begin, let's protect the cell phone. Cover the screen with a piece of cardboard
paper and wrap it in a transparent foil. Set it aside and get excited cause we're about
to DIY a silicone play dough! Mix together about half a cup of corn starch
and quarter of a cup of silicone. You can buy 100% silicone in any shop where
they sell building materials and supplies or just take it from your dad. Work the two ingredients together with your
hands. This part is so much fun โ€“ the silicone
is so squishy and satisfying! At this point you can add more corn starch
or silicone if you need it.

After a while you will end up with an even
soft and squishy ball โ€“ just like play dough. The silicone hardens quite quickly so let's
continue before it does. If you want a colored phone add a bit of food
coloring to the mixture and work it in. A very important note is to use food coloring. I tried with acrylic paint and it completely
ruined the texture. The silicone never hardened and the dough
just kept tearing apart. Food coloring is designed in a way that it
doesn't change the texture of our dough. On top of that it is very potent โ€“ you only
need a tiny amount to get a great color payoff. Sprinkle a bit of corn starch on a flat surface
and roll your dough. Keep rolling until you have an even piece,
which is roughly double the size of your phone and about 5 millimeters thick.

Place your protected cell phone in the middle
of the rolled dough and fold up the edges. It's like you're wrapping your phone in a
present using play dough. Wait about 5 five to 10 minutes for the silicone
to set and harden. Time to grab an exacto knife and cut out the
window where the screen is. Luckily we've protected our screen with cardboard
paper beforehand, but still be careful so you don't end up scratching your phone. Take your phone out of the silicone case. We still need to make the hole for the camera! Grab any old phone case that you own and push
it inside the silicone one. Now you know exactly where the camera opening
needs to be. Using an exacto knife cut out that piece. You can keep your phone case in a solid color
or you can decorate it and make it even more adorable. Of course I'm gonna decorate! Mix up a bit more silicone dough but this
time just keep it white. Roll it until you have an even thin layer.

Leave the silicone to set and now you can
start cutting out small fluffy clouds. They don't have to be perfect or neat because
clouds come in all different shapes and sizes. I cut six clouds and all that's left to do
is to glue them on your phone case using that same silicone. Yay, we've successfully finished our squishy
phone case from scratch! I think it's so incredible that you can make
a legit phone case from corn starch and silicone! Especially because I'm pretty sure that majority
of you already have these two ingredients at home. Corn starch is a staple and silicone – I'm
quite sure your dad has it! This literally feels like making a phone case
from nothing! Got to love that DIY magic! A great way to DIY pop sockets is to buy plain
white ones online. These are super inexpensive and you can customize
them however your heart desires. I'll show you 3 cute ideas but the options
are literally endless! For the first one I'll be using nail polish. We're going to make a beautiful neon gradient
pop socket and a swimming pool phone case! How beautiful do these two look together!! OK let's start with the pop socket.

Grab any kind of sponge and apply 3 stripes
of nail polish. I started with pink, followed by the neon
yellow and lastly I applied a bright orange polish. Quickly dab these colors on your pop socket
moving back and forth a couple of times. This will create a pretty gradient. If you need to strengthen the opacity you
can apply more polish on the sponge and repeat the step. Finish your design with a clear top coat or
even better a confetti polish. I have this orange pink confetti one and it looks so lovely paired with the neon gradient underneath. I'm sure our neon pop socket would look amazing
on a phone case with a swimming pool design so let's quickly make one from scratch. Print out a swimming pool picture and cut
out a piece, which is as big as your phone. Place it inside a clear case and the gorgeous
swimming pool phone case is ready! All we got to do is to stick on the pop socket.

Here it is our stunning swimming pool phone
case with a neon gradient confetti pop socket. These two are so perfect together โ€“ I love
the bright pop socket colors against that blue color. I just can't stop staring at it โ€“ looks
so happy and summery! Another way to decorate plain pop sockets
is by using sharpies. You can personalize them by writing or drawing
anything you like. On the first one I'm going to draw a cute
cactus design. If you suck at freehand drawing like me you
can sketch the shape with a pencil first.

Outline the cactus with black and then color
it in using a green sharpie. To add a bit more color let's put some hot
pink flowers to each of the three cactus tops. What else is missing?! The spines of course. Ouch that hurt! Draw a bunch of short black lines allover
your cactus. Many of the cacti grow in the desert so of
course we got to make a desert phone case.

Print a picture of the desert, cut out a piece
to fit your phone and place it in a clear case. Now our cactus pop socket will feel like home! Remove the protective paper from the back
and stick it on the phone case. How adorable it looks, right! Kakti designs have been so trendy the past
couple of years. I've seen them on clothes, accessories, pillows…
everywhere. And I can totally understand that โ€“ they
are simply gorgeous! I made one more design using sharpies โ€“ this
time a kawaii cloud with a rainbow and bright blue sky. To make your sharpie creations more vibrant
try coloring the same design twice โ€“ it makes a big difference! This fluffy cloud is so sweet and full, therefore
I decided to keep the phone case white.

It's like plain on the case, party on the
pop socket! See how many beautiful creations you can make
on inexpensive white popsockets? I show you 3 different options but of course
sky is the limit. You know I love anything fuzzy, snugly and
plushy like. So of course we got to make a fluffy monster
phone case! You'll need a pair of googly eyes, a piece
of furry fabric and a phone case. Outline the shape of your phone case on the
back of the fabric. Don't forget the little camera opening on
top. Take your scissors and cut out the piece of
fabric, which will be as big as your phone case. For the camera hole you can use exacto knife
or nail scissors because they are smaller and easy to work with. Take a phone case plus a glue gun and apply some hot glue on the case. Grab the furry piece of fabric that we cut earlier and place it on top. Time to glue on the googly eyes! I love using them in my DIYs because I feel
like they instantly give a personality to whatever I'm creating. From a simple fuzzy phone case this became
a cute monster case.

What a great idea for all the animal lovers
out there. Also it's perfect for recycling old phone
cases. If you're tired of the same case you've had
for a long time, simply transform it into a gorgeous fluffy monster! Why buy expensive phone accessories in stores
when you can make way cuter and more amazing things with your own hands! Some crafty spirit is all you need. AAA! No, I can't take it anymore! Leave me alone! Hope you liked these ideas and if you did
don't forget to press that like button, because it makes the video feel happy. Question of the day! What color is your phone case right now? I'm currently rocking this one, so blue for
me. OK, thank you so much for watching guys, I
love you take care and I'll see you soon.

Bye! Mwah… These little devices allow us to be constantly
in touch. Connected to our loved ones โ€“ friends, family,
connected to the world. We take them everywhere and it seems like
we do everything together. Of course, sometimes we have to play a little
dress up too!.
