Headphones wraps are a great way to keep your nice ear buds in ship shape. There are plenty of options out there (from dead fish to apple cores), but if you’ve got $2 and about 5 minutes, I’ll show you how to make your very own, two- (or one-) color headphone wrap!
The key ingredient is a little thingy-ma-jigger called a Pen Pal.
The Pen Pal (and not the kind you wrote letters to in 2nd grade) is made of a soft silicon rubber, has an adhesive strip on the back, and, as their website says, is “the great little pen holder that you can stick anywhere.” So why would this be of any use when we’re trying to wrap up headphones? Check it out!:
- 2 Pen Pals (I found several colors at OfficeMax for a buck each).
- A pair of scissors.
Peel the backing off of the adhesive strip on both of your Pen Pals.
Stick your two Pen Pals together in a mirrored fashion, as shown:
With your scissors, cut a notch open on the top and bottom of your Pen Pals, like this:
Now just wrap your earbuds (or any other cord for that matter) around your new headphone pal!
Here’s an example of how to wrap it:
