  • Clothespins
  • Acrylic paints
  • Nail polish
  • A fine brush


​We have all lost our earphones and do not remember where we left them ... at home? in the office?

This time, we are going to show you a simple, fast and fun way to solve this problem. Let's start!

15 minutesDifficultyEasy

Step 1: The materials

For this project, you can easily find all the materials at home: wooden clothespins, acrylic paints or nail polishes, a brush and a lot of creativity!

Step 2: Let's paint!

​First, choose the colours with which you would like to paint the clothespins and the designs that you would like to use; points, lines, waves, etc.

Paint with a fine brush on each side of the pin, making sure to leave the paint dry thoroughly for the colour to last longer.

An alternative is to use washi tape instead of paint to decorate the clothespins.

Step 3: Wrap the cords

Organize the earphones, either by placing the cords in the space of the upper part of the clamp, or simply by wrapping the cable around the pin and then fix it with the other end of the clamp.

Now the cord organizer is ready! What do you think of the result?
