• diy dried floral/leaf phone case {easy as cake!}

    about a year and a half ago, i wanted a fun and unique phone case and decided to make my own. since then, i have received a million and one questions about my case and where i got it. unfortunately, if it's something i feel like i can make, i don't spend a dime a test my creative boundaries - so i never had a link for y'all to purchase my exact case from. thankfully, this little impromptu leaf case test was a win and was so fun to make! so i thought i'd share the fun behind making one. i used my own pressed evergreen leaf. you can purchase dried florals online, or you can read a more in-depth leaf drying process here.

    tools you will need: 

    - pressed/dried florals and leaves

    - a brand new clear (and high quality) phone case, here are my recommended brands to purchase: iphone 6/6s, iphone 6 plus, iphone 7, iphone 7 plus, samsung galaxy

    - vinyl glue + water 

    - small old brush {i like purchasing cheap packs like this one to have more brushes for future crafts!}

    let's get to makin'!

    Create a 1:1 ratio mixture of the vinyl glue and water.

    On the inside of the case, place your dried leaves/florals in the places you want them to be. Then use a little of the glue mixture to stick each piece inside of the phone case. This helps ensure the leaves keep their place when you start adding top coats. Make sure to let it completely dry before applying top coating.

    Once dry, apply a few layers of the mixture over the leaves. Let each top coat layer dry before applying the next.

    It is best to let the glue dry over night, just to be safe.


    voila! you have your own, one of a kind phone case that your friends wish they had. leave a comment below if you'd rather nix the whole crafting idea, and you'd like me to make one for you! i find way too much enjoyment out of creating things like this, so don't hesitate to ask ;)

    xoxo celo
