DIY: Cell phone holder

Why charge an expensive smartphone on the ground? This quick and easy D.I.Y. creates a protective pocket for a phone so it won’t get dirty or stepped on. Rather, it will chill and stay safe in a comfy and cute cell phone holder.


Empty lotion bottle


Sharp knife (or X-acto knife if you have one)

Sharpie (or something to mark with)

Decorative duct tape


Get an empty lotion bottle that has enough length, depth and width to support the cell phone, then measure the height of the phone.

Use the Sharpie to make a line around the bottle and above the phone to know where to cut. The back should be an inch or so higher than the front.

After the outline has been made, follow the outline and cut the shape out. On the back, draw a small box that’s the size of the plug outlet and cut along the line.

Use the duct tape to decorate the holder.

Place the cell phone in the holder and plug it in the wall socket.
