DIY Lace Phone Case

 I love the look of my new phone case!!!  I had this case in mind while shopping for my “new” iphone 3g.  Of course I couldn’t find a case with lace printed on it… so I made my own.  It is really easy and the results are beautiful!
Lace Phone Case
UPDATE: My phone case only lasted 2 days… so unless you have a better way to paint this don’t expect the results to last… suggestions? 
what you will need: 
plain color hard plastic phone case (I used white) this will be he “lace” color
spray paint in color of choice
optional rhinestones and super glue
wide lace trim or lace fabric
fine grit sand paper if your phone is super glossy
Directions:  First scruff up the phone case a little with the sandpaper so the paint will stick.
Cut the lace a little bigger than the case.  Wrap it around the backside of the case and tape very tightly.  When you turn it around it should look like the pic below.
You will spray paint over this side over the lace- be careful not to spray too heavily- you want a thin layer of paint.  Take the lace off pretty quickly after spraying.  Spray the front of the case if you want the same color on that side… do not handle the front side after painting until thoroughly dry.
From here I just added some Rhinestones with super glue and I was done!  Super stylish!  Also i didn’t plan on it, but the black stones on the back sort of protect the cover when i lay it down… If you don’t like the raised rhinestones… look for sequins.
I love lace!!!
 Happy Creating!

All you need to do is seal it... A coat or two of mod podge, and if you really want it to last, a coat of Americana Triple Thick Glaze on top of the mod podge (triple thick alone will strip your paint).

You can also modpodge the lace directly onto the case for a more textured look.

You might want to try a different kind of paint like acrylic... unfortunately my case didn't last very long.
