DIY Unlimited Customizable Phone Case!

Hey DIYers! Today's DIY, I think, is one of my most favorite DIY ideas ever! It's a DIY phone case, but better yet, it can be customized... UNLIMITED TIMES! This DIY is PERFECT for people on a budget, because instead of getting multiple phone cases, you only need 1!

What you'll need:
- A clear phone case
- Cardstock Paper
- Pencil
- Markers, Washi tape, glitter, stickers... Whatever you want to make your phone case look amazing!
- Exacto Knife (Please get parent's permission!)

Steps:
1. Using your pencil, trace the phone case, including the camera hole.
2. Use an exacto knife to cut the shape out!
3. Try to fit the paper in the case. Most likely it'll be a little too big because the outside of the case is bigger than the inside, so trim the paper accordingly to fit the inside of the phone case.
4. Once the paper fits inside the phone case, decorate it however you'd like! The only thing is that you CANNOT make the design 3D (like glitter glue that rises above th…

DIY Calendar!

Hey DIYers, happy 2018! I hope you all had a fun and safe night last night. Today's DIY is a DIY Calendar! Yes, you'll be a few days behind from crossing off each day as it passes, but you'll catch up in no time. Let's get started!

You will need:
- Balsa wood
- A black marker
- C-hooks
- 12 instax polaroid photos
- Small blank cards
- A hole punch
- A craft knife
- A glue gun
- A ruler

Steps:
1. Cut two pieces of balsa wood that are the same size with a craft knife. My pieces were 21cm long which fitted 3 cards with room around them. I suggest you measure out your cards in case they are a different size.
2. Paint one or both pieces of your balsa wood however you would like them to suit your room. One coat of acrylic works fine if it's a dark colour but you may need a few coats for something lighter.
3. Measure up where to put your hooks that will fit 3 different cards on one piece of wood. Then you should easily be able to screw them in.
4. Assemble your stand by g…

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?!

Hey DIYers! Long time, no see! I am SO, SO, SOOOO sorry I haven't been active recently. I have been swamped with extracurriculars, homework, and studying for the SAT that I haven't been able to sit down and write DIY posts!

I will try to start posting regularly again, so be prepared to see some new DIYs in the future!

DIY Riverdale Halloween Costumes

Hey everyone! I know I’m a little late to jump on the train,  but I recently become obsessed with the TV show, Riverdale!  I think the characters of Riverdale will be like last year‘s Suicide Squad Halloween costumes:  as in they will be the most popular.  Even I’m going to be Veronica!  Let’s get started!

1. Archie Andrews
 I love Archie in the show.  He cares about his friends, and honestly, I wish more boys in real life were as sweet as he is. I totally ship him with Veronica, #Varchie, and can we please mention... how freaking hot KJ Apa is?!

You will need:
- Blue and Yellow Varisty Jacket with a Yellow R taped/stitched on.  Not gonna lie, varsity jackets expensive, so might as well buy this already-made one from Amazon.
- Jeans
- White shirt
- Any shoes of your choice
- Red hairspray dye (optional)

2. Betty
 OK.  Betty kind of scares me because of how sweet and how angry she is at the same time. Nonetheless, I love her character, and how smart and adoring she is of the people ar…
