If you were wondering why we happened to be researching novelty phones, it was for props for the new photos for the site. What we quickly discovered was that despite having a million phones shaped like things, there was not a SINGLE fuzzy phone. It just really felt necessary that we have one for the shoot so… I made one! A DIY fuzzy phone. Perhaps not the most useful project nowadays, but it is the actual BEST desk accessory you’ll ever have.
I take pretend calls all the time now. (Not lying.)
So below, you’ll see our new project card! It’s a great way to keep all the instructions in one place, and you can print it if you’re DIY-ing on the go! We’ll be gradually updating old posts with it, too! =)
DIY Fuzzy Phone
Total Time: 15 minutes
Hot Glue Gun
1. Measure your boa around the phone's base and trim off the excess. Hot glue the boa around the base of the phone, working in small sections as you go along.
2. Cut two smaller pieces of your boa and repeat the above with each ear piece.
That's literally it, you guys! FUZZY PHONES FOREVER!
This project is the easiest though, and just hilarious. I love the idea of making this as a gift or for a slumber party, bachelorette or bridal shower. Every girl wants a pink fuzzy phone. JUST ADMIT IT, LADIES!
This is so funny, I love it!

I may be looking in the wrong place, but I don’t see the project card! The post goes straight from your paragraph about “below, you’ll see our new project card” to your final text paragraph and the PS. Just wanted to let you know! (I’m on Chrome, btw.)
I don’t see it either!
Looks like my web developers made the changes overnight that I had mentioned (WOO!) and I hadn’t had a chance to update it! You should be able to see it, in the middle of the post, now! (It may take a bit to show, so you can check back later if you don’t see it yet!)
I think I squealed with delight when I saw this! *insert heart eyes emoji*
