This DIY project has been along time coming. I had seen this phone case on Bleach Black and thought it was pretty spunky. However when I saw this tutorial I decided that I should have a go. So I headed straight to ebay for supplies. Glorious ebay. I decided to go for a bit of a less severe spike then the other two cases and thought that gold would give it a good look.
What You'll Need:
- Screw in spikes (I got mine from ebay)
- Silicone phone case (ebay again, I chose black but you can use any colour)
- Safety pin
- Metallic pen
- Pig stabber (I didn't know what it was called and was kinda shocked when I found out)
I was going to do a whole step by step process for you here but the truth is that this DIY doesn't even have that many steps, it isn't really hard at all.
First have a play with your spikes and see how you want to arrange them on your case. I decided to go with about 1.5cm between each spike. Next you have to use your metallic pen to mark out where you want the spikes.
Next I used a safety pin to make a small whole where the first spike was going through, then I used the 'pig stabber' to go through this whole and make it a little bit bigger. You need to be careful not to rip the silicone when you are doing this part. If you don't have a 'pig stabber' you can use anything, like a bottle opener or metal skewer.
Finally put the bottom (screw) part of the spike through the silicone case then twist the top (spike) part on until it is tight. Now Repeat this several times until all your spikes are in place.
Ta- da My finished product:
p.s. Did that even make sense?
