Makeful Challenge: Cellphone Cases

Glitter Mandala Phone Case

Create a beautiful, henna inspired, glitter mandala phone case!


  • Optional:
  • a piece of paper
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • compass
  • Necessary:
  • acrylic adhesive
  • glitter
  • fluffy brush
  • clear nail polish

How to make it

Step 1: Optional:
Trace and cut out the shape of your clear phone case. Use the compass or freehand a mandala design for your glitter case. Place the drawing into the phone case so the design is visible on the back surface.

Step 2: Trace (if you've completed the optional steps) or draw your freehand mandala onto the back of your case by applying acrylic adhesive. Make sure your lines are solid and far enough apart to be legible when the glitter is applied. Wait for the acrylic adhesive to dry clear.

Step 3: When the adhesive is clear, use a fluffy brush or your finger to apply glitter to your design. Be generous with the glitter and make sure your entire design is covered. Use the fluffy brush to remove excess glitter.

Step 4: After the excess glitter is removed, very gently apply a generous coat of clear nail polish to the entire back surface of your case. Make sure you cover your entire design or you'll King Midas glitter onto everything you touch.
Leave it to dry and viola!
