Dress up boring cords with an easy craft for summer!

Add a splash of color to your boring charger cables while making them less likely to get tangled. This is also a great way to claim your cords so family members know which cords belong to them. Each family member can have their own color to help end the cord war.

What you need:

Start by tying a knot at one end of your charger.

Lay your yarn in an arch like shape over the top of your cord.

Bring your ball of yarn through the middle of the arch by passing your yarn under the cord. Pull and slide your knot toward the first knot you made.

Make sure to treat the tail of your yarn like the cord and cover it to hide it.

As you continue to make knots you will notice a spiral pattern, this is supposed to happen.

When you reach the other end of your cord trim your yarn so there is a 12 inch tail.

Use a yarn needle to sew in the tail. Skip the first knot and begin sewing through the 2nd knot. continue to sew up and under each knot for about 2 or 3 inches (of cord). Pull the tail tight and trim the rest off.
