Makeful Challenge: Cellphone Cases

Fake Calligraphy DIY Phone Case

With this project, I definitely wanted to do something simple and fun that anyone could recreate. With an oil based fine marker, I did free hand lettering on the exterior of the case. When it was dry, I went back and shaded the down strokes with a thick black line to add some drama to my phone case with this fake calligraphy look.

My favorite part was putting it on my phone. The contrast of gold and black was quite dramatic and pretty so I was pleased with the results of this ten minute diy project.
