Most teens and college aged music lovers go through headphones like they’re going out of style. While there are several things I use the old headphones for – including garden ties and ties to organize extension cords – my favorite by far was taught to me by my seventeen year old daughter.
Here she is modeling her recycled craft idea – she reuses the old headphones creatively as a choker necklace. What an awesome idea!
HOW TO MAKE A NECKLACE FROM AN OLD SET OF EARBUDS OR HEADPHONES
One set of old earbuds or headphones, a charm (if you prefer)
Step One - Tear the two cords apart to the base (the part that plugs into something)
Step Two – Start knotting the way you start to tie a shoe (left over right and pull it from under).
Step Three – Repeat knotting. It helps to switch left over right then right over left because it evens out the ear buds.
Step Four – Leave enough room to be able to knot the ear buds over the plug.
Step Five – Tie on with the earbuds worn in the front. For a more creative look add a large stone or charm on the necklace and wear the earbuds towards the back with the charm on the front of the choker. Very cute!
