DIY Phone Case - Vintage Junk Jewelry


 
Check out the DIY iPhone case I made with vintage junk jewelry.  I'm not usually a girlie girl, but sometimes you just need pearls, rhinestones, charms and buttons, right? 


What you need:
– phone case (I used one I found on sale)
– Vintage jewelry, gems, buttons, and beads
Aleene's Jewelry and Metal Glue
– Jewelry pliers/cutters
 

So, when I found this marked down iPhone cover at Ross, I couldn't resist picking it up for $5.99.
It was the perfect base for me to start with and add a little bling and sweetness.

 
I have to admit that I'm a little bit of a hoarder when it comes to vintage jewelry.   And it was really hard to choose exactly what I wanted to glue to the cover.  But I knew it needed just the right stuff.
 
Seriously, I could have just started at one corner and cover the entire thing, but I really wanted the flowers to be part of the design.  So I chose a handful of my favorite things and the charm "inspire".
I grabbed one of my favorite glues, Aleene's Jewelry and Metal adhesive, and it worked great.
 
Some of the pieces were earrings and buttons, and I snipped the backs off so that they would lay flat against the case and insure that the glue would hold when I shove the phone in and out of my purse.
 
And of course, I had to add a little "WACK" to my design with fabulous silver alpha cubes.
I hope you like it, and will be inspired to personalize your own phone cover with whatever you love.
