Earbud wrap-Simple Soultion

It seems as though almost everyone has an iPod, iPhone or some sort of MP3 musical device.  With this comes a pair of ear buds and a cord that becomes a tangled nightmare.  I’m not sure why, but the rubber coating seems to act magnetic and help tie itself in knots.  I don’t know how many times I have taken them out of a pocket or bag and they are all twisted up like this…..

A simple solution to avoid this mess is to wrap the cord with friendship string or a strong embroidery thread.   This should take you back a few years (or decade or two in my case) to when everyone made bracelets out of friendship string.  It is a little time consuming to complete, but the end result is well worth it.  Here I picked 3 colors that gave a camouflage pattern effect.

We bought a pack of the friendship string at Wal-Mart for under $5.  There were numerous color choices in the package.  Pick at least two colors, but you can choose as many as you want, to personalize your tastes in colors and alternate the pattern as you wish.  The package also has directions on how to perform each pattern. 

We hope you enjoy and try it out.  It will make untangling your ear buds a thing of the past.
