Need something new for your phone? Some of the best accessories are not sold in stores, but you can make them. Check out these awesome ideas.
1. Iphone Dock From Old Books
This idea is pretty ingenious! I had looked at book-phone chargers on Etsy, but they’re $50-60 and that’s more than I want to pay for something I don’t need. And then I found this awesome DIY project tutorial from At The Pink of Perfection. Her husband made this Iphone dock for her, how sweet is that? Not only is this a book charger, but it’s a storage box as well. What a creative idea!
2. Family Charging Station
Looking for a family charging station to organize all of your family’s electronics? Problem no more! Here’s a game changer that will solve your charging problem in the house – a family charging station. There’s an outlet that was converted to a 4-port USB charger so you can now say bye-bye to those ugly chargers. I have to get one of those USB outlets for my kitchen.
3. DIY Smartphone Stand With Binders
This is one nifty idea for an Iphone stand. Who knew that you can use binders to create a makeshift phone stand? All you need are binders and some washi tape for decoration and you’ll be all set. Akamatra has the complete step-by-step instructions so you can start making your own.
4. DIY Movie Projector For Your Smartphone
I have always been fascinated with the idea of a DIY Movie Projector. And this one just costs around $15 to build and make. I think it looks much nicer than an old DIY shoebox movie projector. I’ve been wanting to figure out a way to have an outdoor moving showing, but just couldn’t bring myself to buy a projector. Love this idea so much.
5. DIY Phone Jack Cover
This decorative wall box can totally disguise phone jack that cost less than $10. It’s made from a recycled cigar box that has been decorated to match the kitchen decor. It’s an easy DIY home decor project and there’s even a little bit of hidden storage inside.
6. Clean Your Phone The Right Way
Disinfecting wipes are effective at killing germs, but they can corrode and remove the protective coating of your phone which repels oils from your fingers and face. So here’s a safe way to disinfect your phone that’s way less abrasive but still effective at killing all the germs.
7. DIY Portable Phone Charger
Make your own portable phone charger with this DIY Portable Phone Charger tutorial. It’s easier than you think. With an empty mint container, punch a hole in the side with a nail, and widen it with needle nose pliers. Push the USB port against the hole, and tape in place with electrical tape. If your mint case is big enough, you can store some extra batteries.
8. Using Your Phone Abroad
The cheapest way to approach data roaming abroad is to use a foreign SIM card for the country you’re traveling in. These can often be purchased at the airport and usually cost between $1-2. You can then purchase a prepaid data and texting plan with your new international carrier.
9. Easy DIY No Sew Phone Charging Pouch
Here’s a handy way to keep your phone and cords contained while charging overnight. I loved this idea! I sewed it instead of just glueing it because it was going to be a gift and I wanted it too look extra nice. After I finished it the thought of the pouch slipping off the charger and falling to the ground with little protection scared me… so I added an extra layer of fabric and stuffed it full of a soft padding then sewed it shut.
10. DIY Cell Phone Pocket
For this tutorial, you will need your pattern. These are 4 of the new pattern pieces for the right leg. Lay tracing paper over the top of this pattern and trace each piece, leaving space in between. he black lines represent the old pattern, so obviously don’t add seam allowances to those sides. Any sides that are red or purple will need seam allowances added.
