Phone Charging Station

Phone charging station

Hi, I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I had midterms all week so I’ve been kind of busy. Anyway, today I made this cute container to hold a phone while it is charging. I got the idea for this from makeit-loveit.com, but I decided to paint mine, instead of cover it in fabric like they did. First you need to find a good, plastic bottle for this. I used an empty body wash container that I had rinsed out and dried. You want a more oval shaped container, that isn’t too big, or too small to fit your phone. Next, I drew a line around the bottle as a guideline to cut on.

To cut out the shape, I had to use big kitchen scissors, but you could also use an x-acto knife. I cut a little above my line because it was very messy the first time, but then I went back around and cleaned up the line a little. Then I traced the shape if my charger on the back section and cut that out. This part would probably be easiest with an x-acto knife, but I just folded the plastic over so I could make a cut, then adjusted the size of the hole until my charger could fit through.

Lastly, you just have to design your bottle. I painted mine, but you could also use duct tape, mod podge tissue paper, or do fabric like the original one was. Now, your phone won’t have to sit on the floor while you charge it!
