Use a mini wood easel to create a useful and cute DIY phone stand for your desk. You just need to add washi tape. So easy, anyone can do it.
Even though sometimes electronics can distract me while I work, I started thinking a little easel for my phone would be great.
I can stream music at the desk while making sure none of the paints, glues or glitter at my fingertips creeps onto it. Just one problem . . . the easel was boring looking.
Enter washi tape to make this DIY phone stand!
DIY Phone Stand
Here’s how I dressed it up. You’ll need:
- Table easel
- Patterned washi tape sheet
- Thin washi tape rolls, two different colors
Peel the white backing off and stick to the surface, rubbing out the bubbles with back of your thumb. Cute already, right?
Recently I purchased thin washi tape rolls, which are half the width of regular rolls. It worked out perfectly here and gave the easel a cool color block/outlined effect. Just center the tape and use scissors for clean ends.
In less than 15 minutes, my phone had a cute little easel it could sit on while I worked. When I’m not playing music, I can use the easel for displaying business cards or even a small desk calendar. This would also make a sweet gift for a technology loving tween/teen.
