DIY Laptop Skin

Laptop skins are a great way to personalize your laptop. They can be expensive and sometimes it’s hard to find exactly what you are looking for. This is an easy DIY laptop skin.

I love to be unique and decorate my beloved electronics in a unique way. I change my mind of how I want them decorated a lot so I try to save money when decorating as much as possible.

I came up with this easy DIY laptop skin and though you my readers would love to learn how to do this as well.

I’ve done this two different ways. One way was to use pattern scrapbook paper. This method I’m going to share I used a finished adult coloring page.

Supplies:

Of course you need a supply list. The great thing about this craft is that you probably have all of the supplies on hand in the house already! You’ll need a finished coloring page (Would be great to use a child’s drawing too), tape runner, scissors, paper trimmer (or you can use a ruler and pencil if you can cut a straight line.) You will also need clear packing tape.

Directions:

Step 1. With your paper trimmer, trim any excess paper from the coloring page. If you are using a printable coloring sheet you can resize it on your computer before you print it to help it fit your computer better. I did not because I decided after I colored this design to do this craft.

Step 2. Using the tape runner adhere your coloring page to the lid of your laptop. Be sure to have it in the correct direction that you would want others to see it when the lid is up on your laptop.

Step 3. Take the clear packing tape and cover the coloring page completely. This will help protect the page and keep it looking beautiful on your laptop. This is especially important if you travel with your laptop a lot. I go into the city to work a lot so I take my laptop in and out of my backpack.

This is it finished product. It took me less than 10 minutes to do. It was a spur of the moment idea and I love the look. This is a great way to display those beautiful adult coloring pages. Perhaps you want to show case your child’s work of art. This is a great way to do that as well. It’s easy to change the design as well.

Here is the finished product:

Hope you enjoyed this craft. Do you decorate your laptop yourself? I’d love to see pictures of your finished product.
