Game of Thrones: Iron throne phone holder

By far my favorite DIY yet…. Your very own G.O.T iron throne phone holder.


  1. An extra thick sponge from the dollar store ( it comes 3 to a pack).
  2. A leather strip (Link here: Leather Trim)
  3. A box of cocktail swords from the dollar store ( I got a pack of 100 for $1.00)
  4. Hot Glue
  5. Scissors, X-Acto Knife
  6. Toothpicks
  7. Krylon Spray Paint – Dark anvil grey


  1. Leaving 1 inch from the edge of the sponge, measure the dimensions of your phone’s base and cut out the little rectangle with the knife.                                                     IMG_3035
  2. Cut the sponge in half. On the half that has the rectangle, cut out a 1.5 inch at the center. On the other half, make a corresponding rectangle to fit into the small opening.IMG_3036
  3. Join the 2 halves together at a 90 deg angle, to look like a chair.                                         IMG_3037
  4. Cut out 2 small strips of another sponge from your pack and attach to the sides of the chair as arm rests ( I had to use a green one…. the color doesn’t matter since you will be spraying it with the paint).                                                                                                        IMG_3049
  5. Use 2-3 toothpicks to secure the 2 pieces together at the base.
  6.  Cut out small strips from the leather with a triangle shape at the end. You will need to make a lot of these strips to cover the entire chair.IMG_3048
  7. You will need to make some longer strips to cover the entire seat of the chair, leaving enough room to drape over the cut out.
  8. Use hot glue to attach the strips all over the chair. Make sure the strips hang a little past the chair on all sides. 

  9. Start gluing the cocktail straws, all around the throne, by using a google image as reference. 

  10. Spray the entire chair, swords and all, with the grey paint (Do wear gloves and do this outdoors. It gets pretty messy). You will need 2-3 coats. Let it dry for 24 hrs.                             IMG_3126

Hide the inner bits of sponge with more layers of leather and paint.

And it’s ready 😀 My phone looks so royal now. I took a picture with my phone case so you could see how it fits.
