Transform Your Old iPhone Into Wall Art With This Tutorial

Kirstin Fawcett

Don’t know what to do with the old iPhone that's collecting dust in your desk drawer? You have plenty of options. Donate it to charity, trade it in for cash, use it as an iPod—or do as Lifehacker suggests and transform it into a hanging piece of wall art.

Instructables user Purincess offers a video tutorial on how to build a custom wooden frame for your iPhone 3G/3GS or iPhone 4/4S phone, using a board, a laser cutter, Exacto knife, or drill press with a circle cutting tool. Simply set your phone’s display to the picture or image you want, slide it into the frame once it's finished, and mount it on the wall. You can also turn the phone into a clock by switching the display to show the time.

Watch the video above, or read the tutorial's full instructions step-by-step on the Instructables website.
