11 Clever Ways to Cover Your Cords

11 Clever Ways to Cover Your Cords

Here are 11 DIY ways to make your cords way cuter.

1. Wrapped + Braided Extension Cords: We love this chunky sculptural braided trio of extension cords. Such a great way to deal with a TV that hangs on the wall, or a desk that’s far away from an outlet. (via Design*Sponge)

2. Electrical Tape Stripes: We love turning electrical tape into candy cane style stripes! (via Bambula)

3. Washi Tape + Leather Snap: Our old friend washi tape shows up yet again – and this time, the results are useful, pretty, and colorful. (via Design Love Fest)

4. Friendship Cords: Remember these little darlings? A project from the early days of Brit + Co (in fact, we were HelloBrit back then!), this is a fun and summer-campy way to keep cords untangled and stylish. (via Brit + Co.)

5. Firesafe Rope Wrap: This rustic look is gorgeous for the kitchen or living room. (via The Vow)

6. Perler Beads: It’s definitely been a while since we played with perler beads, and this gives us all kinds of ideas for DIY tech-cessories.  (via Craft and Creativity)

7. Dyed Wood Beads: Technically, this is a product and not a DIY project… but we’re dying to figure out how to DIY it. (via Les Carnets du Design)

8. Poppy Nature Accents: These adorable little clip on leaves and birds add a bit of whimsy to even the most unsightly of cords. (via Apartment Therapy)

9. Neon Nylon: Decorate a utility lamp cord with neon nylon cord to create this modern look. (via Vitamini Handmade)

10. Beaded Pendant Lamp: More beads! Seriously, we need to figure out how to do this ourselves. (via Riazzoli)

11. Create Wall Art: Last, instead of covering up your cords, why not turn them into wall art? Add string lights and you’ve got the makings for your own marquee! (via Michael Moeller)
