Learn what's trending across POPSUGAR. View in slideshow Mixed in with a week of tech news and Oscar movie watching, we found some time to get our craft on. Check out seven of our favorite DIYs that can make your Saturdays and Sundays more creative. If you haven't had a chance to complete these crafts, add 'em to the list of Spring activities! Paper iPhone Stand Save the money in your gadget fund account (we all have one, right?) and make an iPhone or iPod dock/stand for as little as the cost of a sturdy piece of card stock paper. This DIY from Dessine Moi Un Objet uses an X-Acto knife, ruler, thick card stock paper in the color of your choice, and Dessine's dock pattern template available on its website. With less than an hour of paper folding for a dock of your own, think of it as origami with a functional, tech twist. Custom Star Wars Poster No need for a background in knitting or sewing for this week's geek craft. Creating wall art for your media room or kids' room is as easy as a blank canvas, some paints, and a serious love of Star Wars. To get this craft, designed by Kim from the blog A Girl and a Glue Gun, take a blank canvas, acrylic paints, and a printer to get a handmade collage to display with pride. For the full tutorial, check out the post on A Girl and a Glue Gun. Cross-Stitch iPhone 4 Cover If the previous geeky iPhone cross-stitch case we featured got your juices flowing, and you want to try something new, check out the Leese Design iPhone 4 Cross-Stitch Case ($24) that comes with the grid case, three colors of thread, a needle, and a booklet of patterns for you to choose from. There's nothing like creating something on your own, so this case is sure to simultaneously satisfy your artsy side, as well as your need for shiny and new tech. Leese Design iPhone 4 Cross-Stitch Case $24 from purlsoho.com Buy Now iPad Clutch This pretty clutch is one of the many awesome do-it-yourself projects from P.S. I Made This. . . by Erica Domesek, a super-talented designer who also has a great NYC apartment. The case was created using a drawer liner, tape, and velcro (seriously!), and makes a unique, inexpensive, and on-trend home for your iPad. It was inspired by a recent Prada collection and reimagined on an everyday budget. Check out the step-by-step tutorial to make one of your own! Grid-It Gadget Holder I love the Grid-It system for storing my gadgets on the go, which is why I'm excited to try this DIY for myself. This gadget organizer uses the same concept as the Grid-It — flexible, elastic ribbon used to hold your tech in place — but adds a layer of nostalgia by incorporating a vintage hardcover book to keep it neat in your bag (and possibly thwarting potential thieves). It only takes a few supplies to get it done, so check out the full tutorial on DesignSponge. Macquarium Your geeky goldfish deserve better than their current run of the mill home tank. If you're a Mac lover, consider spoiling your fishies with this awesome recycled iMac Macquarium ($199). Made from actual iMac G3s, the aquarium is ready to go out of the box with a working filter and lights. You can even choose from the six original iMac colors! And if you're the crafty type (and want to save a few bucks), you can order a Macquarium kit and build your own for $135. this awesome recycled iMac $199 from holycool.net Buy Now Macquarium $199 from macquarium.jakeharms.com Buy Now Instagrahams We're big on geeky DIY projects, and this one is more delicious than most: homemade graham crackers in the shape of the Instagram logo. Bakerella has the recipe and full rundown on how she pulled it off, so all you need is the ingredients, fondant from a baking supply shop, and some free weekend time.
