DIY Phone Charger Makeover

With almost every electronic device that we brought to college needing a charger, it can be a bit chaotic. Oh, and let’s not get started with when you and your roommate always get your chargers mixed up. Well that stops now! Here is a simple, affordable and super cute way to manage. Glittering your charger with different colors can organize all of your chargers or even eliminate the confusion of whose charger belongs to whom because it will stand out. It’s cheap, quick and easy. All of the materials that you would need only cost about $7. This charger glamifying process only takes about 25 minutes, so it will not cut into any of your study time!

You will need the following items:

  • Charger of your choice (Does not have to be a phone charger)
  • Mod Podge (Matte recommended)
  • Glitter (Fine glitter works best)
  • Tape
  • Paint Brush
  • Clear Finger Nail Polish


Step One: Tape the metal parts of the charger for protection.

Step Two: Paint on the glue with the paintbrush.

Step Three: Shake glitter over the glued areas.

*To conserve glitter, use a paper plate or any surface that can be used as a funnel to replace unused glitter.

Step Four: Set to dry.

Step Five: If needed, paint a second coat of glue on the specific areas.

Step Six: Shake glitter over glued areas.

Step Seven: Once dry, seal with a single coat of clear fingernail polish.

Step Eight: Set to Dry.

Voila! You now have the cutest charger out of all of your friends. Enjoy!
