From protection to fashion, a phone case serves many purposes. However, they can sometimes be quite expensive – especially if you’re the kind of person who likes to change it often.

One of the easiest ways to personalise your phone is to get a transparent plastic case. By itself, it isn’t the most eye-catching thing, but simply slide a colourful piece of paper between the case and the back of your phone, and you’re ready to go, there are thousands of mobile phone accessories in the UK to choose from.

For the more artistically minded, there’s also the option of directly painting your plastic case – it can be as easy as getting a bottle of nail varnish out. Stock up on clear phone cases now, because you won’t be able to stop changing your phone’s look.

Here are 8 easy tutorials to help you DIY the perfect phone case!
