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 TOLO Proposals

Hey DIYers! It's March which means TOLO, also known as Sadie Hawkins, is happening at most high schools! TOLO is a school dance where girls ask guys/whoever they want to ask (for example, I'm asking my best friend instead of a guy!) Today's DIY will show you 5 poster ideas for you to use. Let's get started!

For the gamer: This FortNite poster will give you a yes in under a second! So cute!
A post shared by Prom, Hoco, Sadies, & more! 💕💍 (@the.promposals) on Mar 23, 2018 at 4:31pm PDT
For the comedian: Sticky-note your date's car for a good laugh between the two of you. (Spell out TOLO instead of Homecoming though)


For the foodie: Everyone loves Chicken Nuggets, and this poster's pun (lucky nugget) would be perfect when asking out your date!

For the athlete: The best part about this poster is that TOLO has two O's, so you can draw your date's sport as replacements. For example, draw baseballs for the O's if he/she plays baseball, or tennis balls…

DIY Fake Piercing

Hey DIYers! If you're anything like me, you think piercings are super cool but you're too scared to get them. That's why today's DIY will help you achieve a fake piercing, so you won't have to live with a permanent hole in your face. This specific DIY is intended to look like a cartilage piercing, but you could also use it for a nose, lobe, or lip piercing.

You will need:
- Silver paperclip
- Pliers
- Clear nail polish
- Chapstick

Steps:
1. Straighten out the paperclip with the plier
2. Wind the end of the paperclip around the chapstick
3. Cut the unwound part of the paperclip with the pliers
4. Pull the ends of the winded paperclip to make enough space to put it on your ear.
5. Paint the ends of the paperclip with the clear nail polish to soften the sharp edges.
6. Let it dry.


You're done! I hope you enjoyed this DIY tutorial for DIY Fake Piercing! Stay tuned for more DIYs coming soon! -Madi from DIY With Madi

DIY Polaroid Photos WITHOUT a Polaroid Camera!

Hey DIYers! Today I'm going to show you how to make DIY Polaroid Photos WITHOUT a Polaroid camera. Polaroid cameras cost SO much money, plus you have to buy the film, and in my opinion, it's not worth the expense when you can just make your own polaroids for super cheap! Let's get started.

You will need:
- Copy and paste this polaroid border in Microsoft Word. Resize as needed, and then print.
- An exacto knife
- White cardstock paper (or you can use others if you don't want the classic polaroid frame color)
- Your own photos that will fit inside the polaroid frame.
- A pencil
- Scotch tape

Steps:
1. Using your exacto knife, carefully out the center of the polaroid frame you printed.
2. Trace the polaroid frame on your cardstock paper.
3. Use the exacto knife to cut out the center of your cardstock polaroid frames.
4. Tape your photos to the polaroid frames.


You're done! I hope you enjoyed this DIY tutorial for DIY Polaroid Photos! Tip: If you filter your photos fi…

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!

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…
