Glitter iPhone and lipstick cases!

Hello! My name is Tabby and I’m addicted to… Glitter! I’m a London based Makeup Artist & Beauty Writer (My Makeup My Medium, Spindle Magazine) and I don’t know how it happened but I have become a self confessed proud Mod Podge Geek! Thankfully a website exists full of others out there just like me : )

photo copyLooking for some kind of Mod Podge info online, I randomly came across Amy’s fantastic blog! I’m fairly new to this Mod Podge business but like most of you once I bought my first pot, I couldn’t stop myself from Mod Podging the house up. It all started when I got fed up of looking for a glittery iPhone case,  I have a particularly unhealthy obsession with glitter you see and no phone cases seemed “sparkly” enough!

I decided to take matters into my own hands! I got a little carried away when I discovered that you can pretty much glitterfy anything with Mod Podge so I’ve thrown in a how to mod podge your lipstick as well for good measure!

  • Assorted Craft Glitter
  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • A Small Art Brush (I used an old makeup brush from Benefit)
  • 1 iPhone Case (Mines from Paperchase)
  • 1 Lipstick (Mines Mac Peach Stock)
  • 1 Piece of Paper
  • 1 Almost Empty Glitter Pot Shaker

On a piece of paper or in a small bowl mix together all of your craft glitter to get a beautiful multi colour glitter solution. Alternatively add more or less of certain colours to get different glitter effects

On a piece of paper or in a small bowl add your Mod Podge Gloss Sealer into the Glitter & stir it up with a brush

Paint one layer of the glitter/Mod Podge solution over your iPhone & lipstick case then leave to dry for about 30 minutes. The solution will look grainy and white but will dry clear to leave a pretty glittery effect.

Once touch dry, mix up another batch of the glitter glue solution & spread over another layer. Once you have coated the cases in the wet glitter glue scoop up the remaining glitter by folding your paper  into a “v shape”  and empty the rest of the glitter back into the glitter pot (like a funnel.) Using this loose glitter and the glitter pot shaker slightly tap the side of the glitter shaker to let loose glitter catch and drop all over the cases. This will intensity the glitter effect!  Leave to dry for another 30 minutes. Meanwhile clean your brush in Fairly Liquid and leave to dry on the side of the table.

Step 5

Lastly with the newly dried clean brush coat a final layer of plain Mod Podge Gloss Sealer all over both cases. This will “set” the glitter into place ensuring that you won’t get glittery hands and cheeks every time someone calls you! Leave the final coat to dry over night and then wake up to your new sparkly iPhone and lipstick :) Ta da!
