I love anything that sparkles no matter what time of year it is, but I especially love all of the glitter of the holidays. I’ve already shared how-to personalize an iPhone Charger in 3 easy steps. Since it is the holidays and I feel I need a bit more sparkle in my life, today I’ll be showing you how I changed the look of my iPhone charger by removing the old zebra and replacing it with a little glitter. Because afterall isn’t the fun of creating a DIY iphone charger skin so that one can change it up whenever they are ready to rock a new look?
Instead of buying a new custom iphone charger, why not use what you’ve got and DIY? To create this beautiful, sparkly, glitter iPhone charger and usb cord I first removed the old zebra skin that I had applied earlier. Then I wrapped silver Glitter Duck Tape around the area that I wanted to sparkle lining up the straight edge of the Duck Tape with the straight edge along the charger and carefully with an X-Acto knife cut off the excess Duck Tape to fit. To make sure everything stays securely stuck, I used my fingers to gently press the Duck Tape onto the charger.
CAUTION: An X-Acto knife is extremely sharp so please be very careful when using it. It can also very easily damage your charger if not used properly. Only cut the Duck Tape. If not comfortable with using an X-Acto knife, scissors will work just as well.
Did you know that Duck Tape came in Glitter? I didn’t until I received some samples from the craft folks at Walmart as a part of the Walmart Moms. You can find Glitter Duck Tape at Walmart as well as another new Duck Tape design Prism which I think would be awesome to bling out a phone charger with. What I like about the Glitter Duck Tape for this sort of project is that the tape is a tad bit sheer, easy to apply like most Duck Tape is, and when it comes to continual use it holds up a lot better than other DIY projects using glue and loose glitter as the glitter on the Duck Tape doesn’t come off when handled.
