What you need: headphones, embroidery thread and scissors
Step 1: Select which colors, and how many, you want to use. Cut them longer than the headphone cord – you always need more than you think! Knot them around the headphone cord.
Step 2: Pick whatever color you want to start with and begin making “four” knots. Cross the thread as seen above, and then pull up towards the top to create your knot. Repeat this as many times as you want with each color.
That’s all there is to it! Now you’ve got a colorful new pair of headphones!
