Pinterest Project: Headphone Wrap

For today’s Pinterest Project, I have something that I’ve been slowly working on for a couple of weeks now.  I got the idea, like everything else I do for this series, on Pinterest.  You take your headphones, the ones that are constantly getting tangled up no matter how neatly you fold them up and put them away, and knot some embroidery floss around them.  Not only does this make the headphones pretty and recognizable, but helps them from getting tangled in your pocket or purse.

Headphone Wrap8I made the mistake of leaving the half-finished project out one night and of course my cats decided to shed all over it.  That’s okay, just makes it more mine.

The main problem I had with this, why it took me so long, is because holding the headphone cord and the repetitive knotting kinda hurt my hand.  When I add up all the time I spent on the project, in bits over a number of weeks, it probably took around 3 hours, maybe a little less.  So, it’s a project you can do in an afternoon, if you put your mind to it.

Headphone Wrap5I haven’t decided if I want to wrap the two cords that lead to the earbuds. The cord is thinner and I don’t know how to remove the little slide-y thing.  Also, I kinda just like it the way it is.

So, this was actually the last week I had something planned.  I’ve got to take the upcoming week to plan out some projects for the rest of the month.  If you, my dear readers, have any ideas, please share them in the comments!

    1. I unfortunately don’t have the exact measurements for you, but I used three different colors of embroidery floss. All skeins were the standard 8.75 yards and in total, there’s probably a little over half of each skein left.
