DIY: Earbud Holder

March 2, 2017

This week’s DIY can be of use to just about anyone. It is an easy way to organize your cords for anything. For example, earbud cords. They always get tangled together and are a struggle to untangle. This small project can make life a lot easier.

This DIY only took me five minutes. It is very quick and you can easily make two or three at once if you want. My friends seem to really like the idea and even asked me to make some for them! I found this idea at


-two wooden clothes pegs

-washit tape


-all-purpose glue or wood glue


Step One: Make sure that your earbuds fit. Clamp one of the pegs around the wire right below the jack plug. If it falls through both sides, then it is too small. You may need to get smaller pegs.

Step Two: Tape the washi tape on one side of each peg.

Step Three: Glue the pegs together. Make sure the open dies of both the pegs are on opposite ends of each other.

Step Four: Finally, wrap your earbuds around the pegs. Clamp the jack plug side on one end of the peg, and wrap the rest of the cord around the sides. Then, clamp the other end where the earbuds are in the other peg.

    I’ll tell you, I really need these headphone holders. I have a lot of earbuds and sometimes struggle removing the knots. I get good items from this link
