Glitter Phone Cover DIY

By on May 20th, 2014

Its always fun to reuse the older stuff just to make it beautiful again, I enjoy doing Refashion & Restyle things just to make them pretty & different, even when I look into my crafty stash & there are things which are not too much in use, I started doing experiments with them! my today’s post is also among one of those experiments which I did recently!

I paint this leather pouch with glitter acrylic paints, before I stitch this cover but it was plain, so I put some foamic sticker on this black leather cover. but with time, the stickers were going to fall off.. So one day I peel off all the stickers.. and try this glitter experiment with it..

Here it is.. super easy & simple how-to. All you need to do is just apply the glitter & wait until it gets dry.. thats it..

I use Plaid Extreme Glitter, Red & Gold. I receive some plaid goodies as gift once, so trying these on & off in my crafts.

Apply it with foamic brush applicator. The little heart shapes you are looking at the cover is the stamp impressions which I use first but they were not going good/neat. so I skip that & fill the surface with glitter glue paint..

The first coat was golden, and it was not totally dry when I apply the red glitter & merge a little.. If you feel its going sticky, use zero sand paper & apply & if you want some more glitter, apply another coat of the glitter glue..

Here it is the Before image! simple..! so I make it more colorful & fine!

And this is what I have done in past, I make it a pencil pouch before but later I use this pouch as my phone cover pouch! it is the perfect fit for my phone that’s why I thought to redesign & make it for my phone..

I am using this cover with my phone from a few weeks but the glitter is not felling off, everything is well, glitter is perfect at leather! So you can try it..!

Keep experimenting & enjoy doing easy/quick ideas.

Thank you!
