I have successfully held out against the iphone to avoid more distraction and higher phone bills, but I must say I wish I had one just for the phone case options! My lovely HTC inspire doesn't quite have the case options, so that is why I decided to bling it up a little. I have seen many versions of studded phone cases (like such) and new it was as easy to DIY myself. I am sure many others have had this same idea, so if you have done this, show me your pics!
Here is my version for all you iphone and non-iphone users alike, here is the easy way to stud your case!
Studs in your color of choice (got mine on etsy)
Super Glue or E- 6000
Here's the trick: You need studs with iron backs on them for even gluing surface vs. the hollow studs. The iron backed studs are filled with an adhesive that is hardened so you can add super glue or E-6000 to the backs.
1) Pre-design your back so you know where to place your pieces.
2) Add a dab of glue to the center and use pliers to place evenly. You can also use your hands if you are steady enough!
3) Let dry long enough to ensure no smudged pieces.
Time: 15 min
Total Cost: (Varies on case and stud cost) My case came with my phone and the studs were $5.00 with plenty leftover!
Hope you enjoyed the back to back DIY's this week! More coming up next week:)
