Wrapped Headphones

So I got a new phone (yay!) that came with new headphones (yay!). The thing is, we have A LOT of headphones in our house, and I'm forever tangling mine. I've seen wrapped headphones around the internet and on Pinterest, so I decided to do a little work and fix the problem. This is how they started out:

I picked out some pretty embroidery thread colors and got to knotting:

I just used macrame knots and spun them a little each to make spirals - very similar to how you make friendship bracelets. I only went up to where the headphones split, just because I got tired of knotting (it's easy but it VERY time consuming), but I think it will cut down on tangles significantly.

ImageThe spirals don't exactly match up between the colors, but you can't really tell unless you're really close.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and it matches well with my pink case :).
