Happy Monday everyone!!!

I don’t know about you, but I hate when my headphones getย tangled. This DIY will not only solve this problem, but it’s also going to make your headphones look sooo muchย prettier!
I did this forย my old pair of headphones which I recently lost somewhere โ˜น๏ธย (UPDATE!!! I found them!!!๐Ÿ˜)and I just loved them so much. So now I am making another pair and here is a tutorial for you guys!

What you need:

  • super glue
  • headphones
  • colorful threads
  • scissors

Occorrente

  • colla Attak o simile
  • cuffiette
  • fili colorati
  • forbici

 

Let’s DIY!

So, basically what you will be doing is braiding a friendship bracelet on your headphone cables. There are many ways you can do this but I like the basic spiral effect.

Remember: 50cm (19 inches) areย approximately 6-7cm (almost 3 inches) braided on the cable. I always used 50cm (19in) of lenght.
Ricorda: 50cm diventanoย circa 6-7cm una volta che sono intrecciati sul cavo. Io ho sempre usato fili lunghi 50cm.

1. The first thing you need to do is to double knot the first thread you want to use, cut the excess and glue just the knot with the super glue.
Some people might have seen that some tutorials say to knotย allย the threads around the cable. I personally think this is such a waste of thread because most of it will be covered by all the other colours, so that’s why I am going to use the super glue in this tutorial.
1. La prima cosa da fare รจ un doppio nodo sul cavo con il primo filo che vuoi utilizzare. Taglia gli eccessi e metti una goccia di Attak solo sul nodo.
Alcuni possono aver visto che certi tutorial dicono di legareย tuttiย i fili attorno al cavo. Io, personalmente, lo trovo uno spreco di fili e matasse perchรฉ in questo modo la maggior parte sarร  coperta dagli altri fili. รˆ per questo che qui utilizzerรฒ l’Attak.

2. Begin making a “four” knot just like in the first picture. Cross the thread like in the second picture and then pull up towards the top to create the knot.ย Repeat this as many times as you want until you reached the length you wanted. I did 6cm (almost 3 inches) of each colour.
2. Comincia facendo un nodo a forma di quattro come nella prima foto. Incrocia il filo come nella seconda foto e tira verso l’alto per formare il nodo. Ripeti questo passaggio fino al raggiungimento della lunghezza desiderata. Io ho fatto 6cm per ogni colore.

3. When you’ve reached the length you wanted, grab the second colour and double knot it on top of the excess thread of the previous one, just like in the first picture. Cut the excess and glue the knot. Start knotting again and once you covered enough of the previous thread cut it. Do this every time you change colour! See, this way you won’t waste any thread!
3. Quando hai raggiunto la lunghezza desiderata, prendi il secondo colore e fai un doppio nodo sopra al filo del primo colore, come nella prima foto. Taglia gli eccessi e metti una goccia di Attak sul nodo. Ricomincia ad “annodare” il filo e quando hai coperto abbastanza del filo precedente taglialo. Fai cosรฌ ogni volta che vuoi cambiare il colore! Vedi, in questo modo non sprecherai filo!

4. When you reached the end cut the thread and glue the last knot. Start over on the other cable and that’s it!
4. Quando arrivi alla fine taglia il filo e metti l’Attak sull’ultimo nodo. Ricomincia da capo con l’altro cavo ed ecco tutto!

  1. Wow, Laura! Brilliant DIY as always ๐Ÿ™‚ I imagine that wrapped headphones would be less easily tangled, as well as looking amazingly colourful! โค I once covered my headphone wires in hamma beads that I cut into the side of and slid on, that was super effective too! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. haha c’est super! Comme je disais ร  une autre blogueuse, il y a d’autres maniรจres pour fair รงa si tu n’as pas du fil ou si tu ne veux pas le gรขcher. Par exemple utiliser les perles de plastique “beads” ou Washi Tape aussi!
