DIY Earbuds Holder

A couple of years ago, I purchased a few sets of Shabby Chic® clothespins. They are so beautiful that I kept them in their original packaging for the last four years, waiting for the right craft to come along until I saw this easy DIY earbuds holder project all over Pinterest.

Making this earbuds holder was super easy. Especially because I already had the decorated clothespins available. But if you have plain clothespins, you just have to pretty them up with washi tape.

How to Make The Earbuds holder

Add a thin line of hot glue on the back (non decorated side) of one of the clothespins.

Attach clothespins together back to back. One end should be facing right and the other end should be facing left. Make enough pressure to spread glue evenly. Work quickly as hot glue dries fast.

Your Earbuds Holder is done!

How to Get the Perfect Wrap Every Time

When I tried to wrap my cord around the clothespins for the first time, I started with the plug end. Once I reached the microphone, I could not make a perfect wrap because it is not flexible so, it left me with an awkward hanging end.

That hanging end beats the purpose of an untangled wire.

So, no rocket science! Here’s what you have to do to avoid that:

Start by clipping the earbuds end  first. You should have enough room to center the microphone so it lays straight across both clothespins without forcing it to bend.

The first loop will be the wire in the front, the second loop will be the microphone (in the back), and the picture below shows you the third loop of wire again. So, the mic stays firmly in place and does not bend. If you start with the other end, you won’t know where the microphone will end up.

Keep wrapping around. Secure the other end with the top clothespin and you are done!
