DIY Perler Bead Cell Phone Case Tutorial from Tara Fra Sahara here. You could glue a piece of felt inside the case so the beads wouldn’t scratch the phone. Perler beads are extemely cheap and meltable. You can buy a bucket of 6000 beads plus their pegboards to make designs for $10 at amazon here (no affiliate links). *For more perler bead craft posts go here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/perler-beads
creativity-corner asked: Hey! I was wondering if you could help me out. I have an iPhone with the UGLIEST case, it's called an otterbox.. It's hideous but it's very protective. I was wondering if you knew of a way to spruce it up? I can't seem to find anything online to give me inspiration.
I’m assuming you have the black one and not the pink, light blue etc… I could suggest things like adding crystals using strong cement/glue that I’ve posted, but I saw that on your blog you have just posted a lace stencil tutorial for a black cell phone case that looks really elegant and easy to do - I mean I want that case! I also went to the link and she has also done a cool glitter version and studded version for cell phone cases. My suggestion is to go with that. I love how it looks and you wouldn’t be destroying your very expensive case with glue and I believe the right spray paint would adhere to the otterbox case. Worst case scenario - a messed up paint job that you can paint over. *EDIT: Thank you for introducing me to this fantastic DIY site: http://www.lookwhatmelissamade.com where the cell phone tutorial is from. I love her attitude, style and simple projects. This site is going on my bloglovin’ list!

DIY Cross Stitch Cell Phone Case (and I don’t mean DIY after you BUY the kit to cross stitch your case). This is a tutorial for those who don’t want to buy the kits to do this. Easy (for beginners - she even tells you to get the 14 count plastic canvas) and you can use it for all types of phones - not just the iPhone. Tutorial from weelittlestitches here.
