1. Rivets

This is one of the easiest ways to create an original iPhone case with your own hands. These rivets can be easily ordered online. Moreover, they can be found in any store accessories and sewing supplies. They can be attached to a case with a ready-made decoration on it or use your personal design. In fact, the fantasy here is endless and you can come up with any pattern or ornament that will look good, laid out with such rivets. They can be glued to a solid plastic case or screwed onto a foldable rubber boot. But in any case, such rivets look very stylish, solid and fashionable, so you will not go wrong with them.

2. Galaxy

The space print always looks very beautiful and somehow even slightly mysterious. Not everyone has the courage to use it in their wardrobe, but there is a wonderful opportunity to apply it on such a small, but very important part, like an iPhone case. In fact, this is an ideal opportunity to apply it without undue effort and effort. All that is needed is nail polishes ... By the way, here we have found the use of old nail varnishes, which already go bad and throw away a pity. In addition to them, you still need an old sponge, which is not a pity to cut into pieces. Pieces of sponge will need to put multi-colored "stars" on the previously applied sky background. White paint and a very thin brush to “drip” small stars do not hurt.

3. Custom design

One of the easiest ways to create an individual iPhone case is to paint it. To do this, you can use any felt-tip pens, but best of all - thin permanent markers. Then it all depends on your imagination. Ethnic patterns and prints look very beautiful and stylish. The main thing is to make them bright, using as many colors as possible. But, in fact, you can draw anything you want.

4. Charming

Such a charm is very easy to make. You can use anything you want and to fully display all your imagination. Cute beads, old pendants, pendants or other elements of jewelry and other trinkets simply stick to the iPhone case in any order, as you like. An ideal way to turn garbage lying around at home into something worthwhile.

This is a way to make an iPhone case not only original, but also intellectually filled. You just need to choose an interesting quote (it’s better if this is your life credo, or you can make it such) and write it on the surface of the case with a beautiful handwriting or original font. After that, thematically arrange the composition by completing something or by gluing the corresponding elements.

6. Simple but tasteful

If you are a fan of minimalism, this idea is just for you. Draw or glue some emblem or symbol on the case that will add details, without being too overloaded. The most popular symbols and signs are the infinity sign, anchor, cross, rainbow, diamond, ankh, etc. Choose what you like, pick the perfect color and try to do it yourself.

7. Yours and mine

This is the perfect way to give a present to your young man, best friend or girlfriend, sister, brother or other close person. You need to select the appropriate pattern and apply it on two cases for iPhones. It is very interesting when they seem to be completed separately, but at the same time create one common composition when together. It is both fun and beautiful.

8. Swarovski

If you like everything shiny and sparkling, then this idea is for you. It’s not necessary to use Swarovski stones, although they will look amazing on your iPhone case. You can use beads. Yes, sticking small beads onto a phone case is not easy, long and tiring, but the result is worth these efforts. Moreover, it is not necessary to stick it all out completely. You can make a specific pattern of beads or stones. The main thing is to use imagination and choose the right colors.

9. Shines and sparkles

Here is another idea for lovers of radiant glamor. Again, it’s not necessary to cover the entire case with sparkles. You can come up with an interesting pattern or pattern that will sparkle on the main background. Here you will need a special glue for blending and cosmetic sparkles. Apply with a pencil a drawing that will sparkle (if you decide not to cover the entire cover completely), grease this silhouette with glue, fill in the top of the sparkle. Let them dry, brush off the leftovers so that only a brilliant picture remains and cover them with a layer of glue on top. Do not rash too many sparkles and do not apply too much glue. If the pattern is very thick, the smooth effect will disappear.

10. Spray paint

Such a case for an iPhone is very simple to make, in fact. Everyone knows how to spray paint. Remember this school drawing technique and go ahead to create your own individual and unique cover design. It is best to cover the cover with special glue for blending before spraying, so that the paint is guaranteed to fix and not peel off. Spray paint only after the glue dries. Choose your favorite colors and go!

11. Wildlife

Every young lady in life has a place to have a phase of passion for animal prints. Why not make an iPhone case in the same style? To do this, you need thin permanent markers (in this case, one is black) and an example of coloring. The print can be zebra, tiger, leopard or any other.

12. Gradient

Making a gradient is not so easy, but if everything is done correctly, it will look simply gorgeous. Take paint, water, sponge and get to work. You will wash away the paint with water, going to the place where the next color should begin. Sponge will help mix colors. Any colors can be used. Before you ruin the case, it is best to practice on paper. When you understand that you have reached perfection in technology, you can take on the cover. Remember to use glue for blending before applying paint.

These simple ideas here will help create an absolutely original and unique case for an iPhone that no one else has. Be different from others. Do it yourself!
