DIY Colored Cracked iPhone

Doesn't this look sick!! I've seen people do this with their phones all over Pinterest and I've secretly always wanted to "accidentally" crack the glass on my iPhone so I could give my phone this effect! Fortunately {knock-on-wood!!} my phone has never cracked but a friend of mine wasn't as lucky. So I asked her if I could use sharpie and "bleed" it through the cracks to give it this cool effect, and she let me!! But don't get me wrong, I'm not advising you to run outside and "accidentally" drop your phone on the sidewalk to make it shatter. This Sharpie bleeding concept is just a cool way {I think} to spruce up your already {unfortunately} cracked iPhone. 

How To Do It:

1.Grab as many Sharpies or permanent markers you'd like and your iPhone.
2. Take one of the markers and color all over one area of the cracks {you can color not just on the cracks but also all the glass around it to give the whole area a dyed effect} 
3. After a minute or two, you will notice that not all the dye will soak into the cracks or the glass. With a paper towel wipe away all the excess marker/dye. 
4. Repeat the above steps with however many marker colors you'd like!

If you try this DIY out on your phone or have already done it send me pictures!

  1. Wow! This is so cool! I never would've thought of something like this.

  2. Soooo cool! My sister did this one the back of her phone, it was awesome! Too bad my phone is black haha.

  3. Oh wow, that looks awesome but I am way too chicken to try this because I don't want to break it! Heh. Nice way to turn a broken screen into art though.

    Thanks for the button swap with my blog - looking forward to getting to know you! :)

  6. It looks great but errrrn , broken phone is like a broken heart (or probably , I'm not being good at humour)

  7. Oh! Who would have thought that a cracked iPhone can be transformed with such a cool design? This is so amazing! This idea would really keep you from crying over your already cracked iPhone! Thanks for sharing.
