DIY Rhinestone Ipad Cover

When I bought my iPad, I knew I needed a cover for it.  The cover that I found was pretty boring.  It was just a plain black leather case.  Customizing it was a no-brainer.

Here is what you need:

iPad Cover
Assorted Rhinestones
Fabric Paint & Paint Brush
Painters Tape
E-6000 Quick Hold

Start out by taping off the area you don't want painted.  Then paint the other section with the fabric paint.  I chose a red paint with a pearl finish.

When your paint has dried completely, you can start adding your rhinestones.  I randomly added them until I started to see a pattern that I liked.  Use the E-6000 to glue the rhinestones into place.  A toothpick or small dowel rod can be used to apply the glue to avoid putting too much glue onto the rhinestone.

Let the rhinestones set up overnight before using.

It was a little messy putting the stones on, but other than that it was really easy to do.  It took about an hour to glue them all on.

This is the last of the red and black projects, for now.  More projects to come soon.  I would love it if you became a follower of my blog.  Thanks for stopping by.

Your Whims Wednesday


  1. Where did you find your rhinestones?

    1. I got all the rhinestones from Michael's craft store.

  2. Aw, this was a really good post. Finding the time and actual
    effort to create a top notch article… but what can I say… I
    hesitate a lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.
