Do visible cords bother you? They're like the panty-lines of a house! Go ahead and cover up your cords with a bit of yarn.
Many thanks to Amy @ Delineate your Dwelling for the yarn-spiration!
You will need:
- Yarn that matches your wall color (or floor color, if the cord is resting on the floor)
- Unsightly cords to wrap
These cords have been bugging me FOREVER! Cords to the cable box, xbox and wii. I could hire an electrician to place all the cords inside the walls ... or I could cover them in yarn. Guess what I did :-).
Find some cheap yarn that matches the color of your wall or floor. Wind a large length around your hands or wind it into a ball.
You'll end up with a clump of yarn like this. Much easier than trying to contend with the whole skein of yarn!
Tie a knot around the cord a couple inches above the area you're trying to hide.
Wind the tightly around the cord and tails of the yarn, leaving no spaces between the winding lines. Tie a knot at the end and tuck the tails up into the area you just covered with yarn.
