Upcycling a phone cover

 Hello peeps, I hope you all had a good weekend?

I thought I would post my latest "make do and mend".  My phone cover finally fell to pieces, I was determined not to pay another tenner for one as this one was really good and has protected my phone well for the numerous times I have dropped it over the past 3 years!

So I got out my new duck tape and thought I would fix it myself!

 I heated the case and peeled the cover off the back of the holder and covered it in the zebra duct tape (which I bought from Cass Art when I was up in london the other week), making sure I pressed it down well all over, paying particular attention to the edges and where it overlaps.

I then added some of my small magnets that I use for altered art projects which I stuck on with red tape (that stuff is SO sticky...yep, once again I forgot and touched it with my finger....which now has a little less skin attached!!).

There you are, a revamped case for my phone!  A one of kind!

Not sure how long it will last, but it means that I wont have to buy a new cover for a while so that can only be a good thing for the environment as well as my wallet!

Deep breath all....its Monday tomorrow!



  1. WOW! What a clever idea. You may have started a new craft trend. One that I may just have to follow. Being a follower of the vintage Steampunk style I think this would be a fantastic project. Thanks for sharing. Also I would like to thank you for your kind words on my post Thank you for looking in.
