project // elongated hexagon cord keeper
Okay, first things first. I'm here to brag that I have the cutest earbuds on the planet. When I saw them in a gift shop, I HAD to have them. Never mind that I could have gotten them cheaper on Amazon. There was never any hesitation on my part.
But no matter if you have squirrel and acorn earbuds or plain old black or white, one thing we have in common is that the cords like to tangle. A lot. Cut down on the knots with a cord keeper!
This one is made from leather and is an elongated hexagon shape. Wrap that cord and keep it in its place!
You will need:
A small piece of leather (or vinyl...maybe even felt)
Snap, snap setter, and hammer
A large needle

Cut out an elongated hexagon shape from the leather.
Press the prong side of each snap piece into the point at each end of the elongated hexagon. If you have super strength, you might be able to press it through the leather.
For normal humans, pressing the prongs into the leather will just leave an indent. Use the needle to make holes through the leather. Then you'll be able to get the prongs all the way through.
Use the snap setter to secure the rest of the snap pieces. Seriously hammer them in place.
Coil up your earbuds and snap your new cord keeper around them. Now when you toss them in your bag they'll stay more organized and less knotted and frustrating.
And with gold leather wrapped around them, your earbuds will also look a lot snazzier. Yes, I said snazzier. I just can't promise that they'll ever look as adorable as my squirrel and acorn headphones.
