DIY Phone Case Makeover

Don't throw away those worn out cell phone cases. 
Give them a makeover!

The design had started to wear off of my case, but otherwise, the case was fine...

Rather than throw it away, I gave it a coat of Dixie Belle Paint in the color, Apricot...


After 2 coats of the Apricot had dried, I added painters tape and then painted on some Pure Ocean...


Once the Pure Ocean was dry, I added more painters tape...
then I added the Dixie Belle Goo and Gold Shine...



Of course, I couldn't stop there!
I added Dixie Belle Clear Coat over the Apricot and while it was wet, I sprinkled on a little gold glitter...
Once the clear coat dried and the glitter was set, I went over the entire case with Clear Coat.
Voila! Another item saved from the landfill!

  2. I'll be curious to know how it wears - I painted mine in checks (of course) and the corners chipped and wore...it lasted about 6 weeks and then I bought a new one!

  5. This gives me ways to refashion my phone cases. I don’t even spent money on buying a new phone case. Don’t throw your old phone cases away and begin to renew them with these DIY ideas.
