Sometimes the best things in life are the ones that come easiest. Or for free. Am I right? Just like an old Eagles song or something. Anyways, this is one of those things. A DIY car phone mount. There are lots of phone holders on the market. And I’m sure they all work great. BUT, we have to buy them. So, instead of going that route, we’re gonna DIY one in about 30 seconds (that’s if you have trouble), for FREE. At least, free if you already have the cell phone. Goodness knows THOSE are NOT free. *This post contains affiliate links. Please read our full disclosure policy HERE.*

how to make a FREE DIY car phone mount
So easy, right?! This is certainly not the first time this idea has been thought up. I did a search for rubber band phone mount, and several hits appeared. No one that I saw though showed how to get it into the vent without trying to wedge your finger into the vents though. Luckily, I had a random paperclip in my car…necessity is the mother of invention (side note: I’m fairly certain necessity also drives a minivan). Now, just like the disclaimer on the packaging for all those pricey phone holders states…DON’T USE YOUR PHONE WHILE DRIVING. PERIOD. But you already knew that, right?!
