It’s officially summer y’all, and we’ve come up with a little seasonal refresh for everyone’s favourite accessory. With a few tools and some colour paper, we whipped up a floral phone case that is sure to look ace in flatlays all summer long. 👌 Learn how you can make your own with our instructions below.

You will need:

Demetres' Summer Phone Case DIY Materials

  • A blank phone case for your phone – it can be transparent or a solid colour – whichever you prefer
  • Resin – you’ll need both the hardener and the resin. Luckily they’re usually sold in sets like this.
  • Mixing cups
  • Mixing rods
  • Colour paper
  • Exacto blade
  • Lighter (not pictured)
  • Cutting mat (not pictured)

 

Step 1:

On a cutting mat and using the exacto blade, cut out various floral and leaf shapes. If you need a few ideas to start, check out some vector templates from freepik like this one and this one.

 

Step 2:

Arrange the cutouts on the back of the phone case (i.e. on the outside of the case) until you get to a composition that you like. Then glue them down (use a clear drying adhesive if your phone case is transparent).

 

Step 3:

Mix the resin & hardener according to package directions. The resin we used is mixed 1:1 with the hardener, but that may not be the case for every kit. You’ll need just under 2 oz of resin in total once mixed.

 

Step 4:

Then spread the mixture carefully with a dowel or stir stick over your cutouts without going over the edge.

 

Step 5:

There may be a fair amount of air bubbles in the resin – but don’t fret, all of them can be removed with a little heat. Use the lighter and move quickly over the resin bubbles to watch them pop and disappear. Do this over the entire case to ensure a clear finish. Then wait for everything to dry thoroughly (usually 2 days+).

 

& there you have it!
