Can you tell I had time to kill this weekend? I decided to go on the hunt for some jewels to pimp up my phone because every time I've been out and about looking for a phone case I either can't find one for a Samsung S4, or they're just too dam expensive.
I already have a white removable back on my phone so I decided to add some jewels and make a Skinnydip lookalike. If you haven't spotted Skinnydip cases on blogs recently, then where the hell have you been. Bloggers now have the power to make or break a brand, and Skinnydip have been lucky enough to fall into the 'make' category.
So even though I find the customer service in John Lewis Oxford Street absolutely rubbish - as I also do in Clapham Junction TK Maxx and Debenhams - I headed upstairs to the haberdashery department to see what they had in terms of bling. I came across these cute green and clear/silver sew on gems at £2.50 and £3.00 for an assorted pack, while the superglue was £3.49.
I'm sorry this is my second super-basic DIY post but I'm only learning myself on how to do these things, so again thought it might be nice to inspire any crafty novices along the way.
All you have to do is find a covered surface in a well-lit area. Lay out all your jewels and plan how you want the pattern to look before you even open the glue. Then, piece by piece, glue everything to the surface. All though a random pattern can look good, I'm all about symmetry and things matching so I worked around a line of green gems down the centre and added bits from there. This all together cost less than £10 and took 20 minutes max - I did, however, glue my fingers together more times than acceptable so watch out as the smaller bits get fiddly.
What do you think to my craft post's of late? Would you like to see more? I'm always inspired by blogs such as A Pair, A Spare and A Beautiful Mess so I'll see if there is anything on there I can turn my hand to next weekend. Have a great week lovelies.
