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 Drink Covers

Hey DIYers! It's finally summer, which means we are going start drinking cold, yummy drinks. But isn't it annoying when bees start buzzing around your cup, taunting you? Today's DIY will help solve that. It's DIY Drink Covers! These are sooo cute, so lets get started!

You will need:
- Perler beads
- Circle pegboard
- Ironing paper
- Iron

Steps:
1. Heat up your iron on a low setting.
2. On the perler pegboard, use the perler beads and make a design. I suggest fruit designs, like the ones shown in the picture below! Kiwi's, grapefruits, lemon, orange, watermelon, etc. are all so cute!
3. Take some of the beads out of the center of your design. This will the hole for the straw.
4. Carefully put the ironing paper on the design.
5. Place the iron over the ironing paper that is over the design and irom until you can see the entire design through the paper. This shows you that the beads have fused together. Do not iron them too much though or the beads will melt.

DIY Apple Cider Bites

Hey DIYers! Are you obsessed with apples but don't like drinking them? Aka apple cider? That's me. Today's DIY is DIY Apple Cider Bites, which are apple slices that taste like apple cider. You suck on them and get all the juice (apple cider?) out, and then eat them! Yum, right? The best part about this DIY is it's incredibly easy! Let's get started!

You will need:
- Apple
- Knife
- Microwave

Steps:
1. Slice thin slices of an apple of your choice (my favorite is honeycrisp apples!) with a knife. Be careful that you don't cut yourself!
2. Evenly place the apple slices on a plate.
3. Microwave the apple slices for 20 seconds or until you hear them sizzling.
4. Let the apples cool for a few minutes.


You're done! Just pop the apple slices in your mouth, and suck on them. Yuuummm! They kind of remind me of lollipops. But healthy lollipops. ;) Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this DIY tutorial for DIY Apple Cider Bites! Stay tuned for more DIYs coming soon! -Madi from…

DIY Lip Stain

Hey DIYers! Today's post is the third and final post in my prom series... And it is DIY Lip Stain! I love lip tints because they don't wear off when you eat/drink, don't need to be reapplied, and give a more natural look than regular lipstick. Let's get started!

You will need:
- 1 Small Beet
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

To make the stain:
1. Cook the beet. (Click HERE for directions)
2. Cut the beet into 1x1 cubes. This will be EXTREMELY messy, and your hands will get stained in the process if you don't use gloves.
3. Put the beet cubes in a blender along with the coconut oil.
4. Pour the liquid into a small jar or bowl.

To use the stain:
1. Using a lip brush or q-tip, apply the stain to your lips.
2. Leave the stain on for an hour. Make sure not to lick your lips, or eat/drink.
3. After the hour is up, dampen a washcloth and lightly wash the stain off your lips.

You're done! Now your lips are a perfect pink-purple color! I hope you enjoyed this super cheap an…

DIY Prom Clutch

Hey DIYers! Today's DIY is another post in my DIY Prom Series. I will be showing you what to pack in your prom clutch to have the best night ever! This DIY is perfect for you if you overpack, like I do. :) Let's get started!

These are things you probably want in your clutch:
1. A pack of mints or gum. If you get mints, get the mini version of altoids. If you get gum, get Trident: their gum packs are small and compact.
2. Go to Nordstrom and get a free sample of the perfume that you're using for the night. They are small, so they'll fit in your clutch perfectly.
3. Bring money! You never know if you'll want to ditch the night and get pizza.
4. Portable charger! If you're taking a lot of pictures during the night, a portable charger (along with the charging cord) is essential.
5. Your lipgloss or lipstick for touch-ups after dinner, as well as lip balm.
6. Blotting paper! Dancing will make your face really oily.
7. Pads or Tampons if you're on that time of th…

DIY Prom Corsage

Hey everyone! Welcome to the first post in my DIY Prom series. Today's DIY is a DIY Prom Corsage! A corsage is a small bouquet of flowers usually given by the guy to the girl to wear on her wrist. Corsages can be up to $45, which is why today's DIY is essential if you want to save money. (Prom can be extremely expensive, so it's definitely worth saving a few bucks!) Let's get started!

You will need:
- 2 inch wide satin ribbon: choose a color that coordinates with your date's dress.
- A flower: my favorite flowers to use for corsages are roses and carnations. Tip: If you buy a bouquet, your friends can use the other flowers in the bouquet for their DIY corsages!
- A "filler flower": baby's breath is a great filler flower because it completes the look of the corsage.
- Floral wire (Thin green wire made for wrapping flowers)
- Floral tape (Thin green tape made for wrapping flowers)

Steps:
1. Cut the stem off your flower, but leave 2 inches under the bud.…
