DIY: Fancy Up Your Phone

Lately it seems like everyone and their relatives has an iPhone. Seeing as I have had the same iPhone for almost four years without it breaking I am very particular about my iPhones case. I have had a Lilly one on it for almost four years (probably about a month after I got the phone I ordered a Lilly one) and swear by it. Everytime I drop my phone I pick it up as one piece. I am very lucky. My friends who use Otterboxes don't have that kind of luck! *(As I am writing this I am thinking about how tomorrow I will probably drop my phone and it will shatter so fingers crossed that that doesn't happen.)* When my mom and I were in Orlando we had a ball at the Lilly Pulitzer store and my mom got me a new phone case for Easter since my other one was looking pretty rough. I love it but the only thing I thought it was missing was a monogram and let me just tell you I found a creative and new (I haven't seen this anywhere else so I am very excited about my originality) way to monogram your phone without having a monogrammed case. 
Exhibit A:

(I apologize for the bad quality of the pictures but I am using my macbook's photo booth. At the bottom I will attempt to include better quality pictures in case anyone wants to Pin this idea or share it with friends.)
Here is a picture of my case:

So how did I monogram the center button? I took a vinyl decal that I had in my desk drawer and realized that it was the perfect size to place over my iPhones button and ta da there you have it. When I put it on the button I was careful to line up the decal in the center so that the circle of the monogram matched the circle of the button and the rest is history. The decal I used was 1/2 inch high and I found that to work very well for me and I ordered them from GS Monograms. They aren't expensive at all and are a cute and creative way to spice up your phone!

I hope y'all enjoyed this DIY and email me a picture if you decide to do this because I would love to see them!
