DIY penguin phone case

FullSizeRender-45

Hi guys, today I’m going to show you how to make this cute phone case. The cool thing is that you can make it yourself entirely and it isn’t that hard either. The case is made using Eva Foam, which is really handy because you are able to use all the buttons on you case trough the foam.

What you’ll need:

  • Black, white and yellow  Eva Foam
  • Scissors
  • Stanley Knife
  • Glue (I used Bizon Kit, but any strong glue will do)
  • A sharpie

Step 1: Make a stencil

Print a profile of your phone from the internet and draw little wings a bit above the middle. They don’t have to be exactly symmetrical.

Step 2: Trace your stencil onto the black foam and cut it out, make sure to leave about 5mm of foam around the stencil.

Step 3: Cut out a long strip of black foam that is as thick as your phone.

◊ Before you continue, you might want to wrap your phone in kitchen plastic to protect it from the glue.

Step 4: Wrap the strip around your phone and cut it to the right size. Glue the ends together so it forms a circle.

Step 5: Glue the circle with your phone in it to your black foam. Make sure to cover the whole circle before you stick it.

(Sorry for the bad quality, I couldn’t use my own phone as it was wrapped in kitchen plastic)

Step 6: While you wait for this to dry, cut out the form of your phone again, this time in white foam. Again, make sure you leave a border of around 5 mm. Then, trace the form of your phone in it and cut it out with your stanley knife. This should be the result:

Step 6: Take the white border and stick it onto the circle around your phone.

This is how it should look

Step 7: Now we’re going to decorate the case.

From the inside of the white border, cut the form of a penguin’s body. Draw eyes on with a Sharpie and optionally paint a little blush on it. Then, use yellow foam to make the beak and feet and you’re done!

(Only after finishing the case I realised I forgot to make a camera hole. Of course, you can just make this real easily by cutting a hole with your stanley knife)
