Make gaming art from broken controllers!

Did you play so much you broke your controller? Don’t throw it away! Make it into art! 🙂 Here’s what you need:

• One picture frame
• A controller of your choice
• A piece of fabric or paint
• Glue
• A paint spray can with the color you want 🙂

You need a frame with a bit of room between the glass and the back of the frame. I found this square frame on Ikea called Ribba whitch was perfect!

Take off the back of the frame and either paint or glue fabric over the whole surface and let it dry! I did the glue fabric version 🙂

Then take your controller and cut off the cord, I pushed the leftover piece of cord back inside with a screedriver.

Clean the controller from dust and hair and dry it! Now it’s time to paint it! 🙂 I used spray can paint in a silver color cuz I love silver ^^ (don’t spray inside, it’s kinda smelly!) 😛 And for the best result spray thin layers several times and let it dry a bit rather than trying to spray it in one go! So pretty! 😀

When the glued fabric/painted picture back has dryed take a ruler and locate the middle of the back piece, take the pretty controller and glue it to the center in the desired angle. (Either to be hung as a square or twist it to a diamond shape) I removed the hook on the back and glued it back on in one of the corners to make mine hang as a diamond shape instead. Let it dry and then put it back into the frame! Done! 😀
