DIY Googly Eye-Phone Case

I love my phone, and I love to dress it in new cases. I stumbled across some iPhone 4 cases at my local dollar store and couldn't pass them up. And I'm glad I didn't because this was so fun to make!

Step 1. Thoroughly clean off your phone case with rubbing alcohol.

Step 2. Organize the googly eyes by size.

Step 3. Evenly spread some super glue on the back of your case using an old paint brush.
Note: Super glue is not your friend, and will destroy your paintbrush from future use.

Step 4. Begin to place the googly eyes on the case. While the glue is still wet you can sort of slide the eyes around to position them to your liking. Start with you biggest eyes, and then fill in the spaces using the smaller ones. The tweezers will come in handy for placing the smaller eyes.

Step 5. When you're all done, let the case dry for 24 hours, then snap it on and you're all set!

DIY Elastic Ribbon Hair Ties

These Anthropologie-inspired homemade hair ties are perfect for summer. Unlike most hair ties, these don't crease or tug on your hair.
Note: I picked up my elastic ribbon from my local Michael's craft store. They only carry a few colors, so you can also buy ribbon here and here.

Step 1. Cut an 8 inch long piece of the ribbon.

Step 2. Apply clear nail polish to both ends to keep from fraying, and wait for it to dry

 Step 3. Tie a standard double-knot and you're done!
