Everyone knows that somehow, magically, earbuds get tangled into an impossible knot no matter how careful you are with them; however, I found a way to keep them tangle free and easily accessible thanks to Pinterest! To make your DIY (tangle and knot free) earbud holder you will need the following items.
– Decorative paper
– Old mint container (I stole my brother's IceBreaker's container)
– Mod Podge
– Hot glue gun
Using your pencil trace around the old mint container. Then cut the paper, making sure that it fits well on the container (and doesn't cover the opening).
Use your hot glue gun to attach the decorative paper to the top of the container, again making sure to not glue the opening shut.
Now you are going to seal the paper and make the earbud holder more durable and waterproof by covering it in a thin layer of Mod Podge and letting it dry for 10 – 15 minutes.
Take your tangle prone earbuds and wrap them up neatly, then place them in your DIY Earbud Holder!
Your finished product will look something like this:
Now for some bonus steps!
These steps are totally optional, but they may make your DIY project a little more functional, because they will show you how to hang your DIY earbud holder from your bag.
– Your DIY earbud container
– String of some sort
– S keychain (optional)
– Hot glue
Measure out the length of string you need and if you want, attach a keychain to the end of your loop of string (as pictured above).
Hot glue your string to the back of the container, creating a loop. This loop will allow you to attach your DIY Earbud Holder to your backpack or purse.
Now you have an easily accessible earbud holder that you made all by yourself! These also make cheap, but awesome gifts, for your fellow friends who like to jam out on the go!
I hope these tips help and that you try to make a DIY earbud holder (because it's actually pretty cool — and handy!).
