diy phone/charger holder

this is one of the best diy's i've come across in so long. it was another one of those "how did i live without this?!" moments (i seem to get those a lot).
the tutorial can be found here and you should definitely head over to make it and love it for other awesome diy's. ashley blogs about everything diy related, from recipes, to home decor, to no-sew projects and i think it would be impossible for anyone to have a browse and not feel inspired!

so here is my version of the amazing phone & charger holder, made from a mouthwash bottle and some wrapping paper that i had stashed away. a practical and completely recycled project- i'm in love. 



excuse the bad lighting in these photos by the way, have you ever stopped to notice what the lighting is like near your plug sockets?!

  2. What a bloody brilliant idea!! I like this muchos! & also the blog that you linked to!
    I normally stick my phone in the top of my bedside radio ipod dock thing (which I had for 7 months before I realised that I could do this and it would charge/play music from it!) BUT I might make Sam one of these!!

  4. Ohhh my gosh, this is such a genius idea! My charger is just about too short to reach my desk or bedside table, I really must take a few minutes to make one for myself. xx

  7. This is a really clever idea! I'm forever tripping over my charger cables and knocking things off the table when charging so this is something I'm really going to have to try! Thanks for the inspiration! x
