Google+ That Flour Child: DIY Fall Leaves Phone Case

DIY Fall Leaves Phone Case

I made this very fall appropriate phone case and wanted to share with all of you how to make it !
I ordered clear iPhone cases from Amazon (link at the bottom of the post) and knew I wanted to make a case that would work through fall.  You've seen me use these cases before, in studded case I made.

So I started by pressing leaves from my backyard.  To do this, you just need a phonebook or other thick book and some parchment or wax paper.  Sandwich the leaves between the parchment or wax paper and close it in your book and stack some heavy stuff on top.  Leave the leaves for 7-10 days (or forget about them for awhile like I did).

Grab your Mod Podge and paint it on to your phone case pretty thick, stick down your leaves where you want them.  Don't worry about the overhanging leaves, you can trim them up later.

Then because I have a black iPhone, I didn't want the black showing through behind the leaves I took some burgundy paint (you could use whatever you wanted really, spray paint, nail polish, etc.).  You could also do this before hand on the outside under the leaves, but I painted the inside.

Seal it all with a spray of a clear spray paint.

This project cost me only what I paid for the phone case (which was just over one dollar!) because I already had the other necessities.

I have a winter themed phone case in mind, so stay tuned!
