Love this idea because i alwayssss tangle my headphones.... D.I.Y. Headphones Tangle-Free in square/Chinese staircase knots. If you've ever used a cord in your life, you know they're prone to tangles. Headphones, especially earbuds, are some of the worst.If you know how to make the square/Chinese staircase knots required to make a friendship bracelet, you already have the requisite skills for pulling off this tangle-prevention headphone hack. If not, read this. You're essentially making a friendship bracelet around your headphone cables. You can use embroidery floss (which you can pick up at almost any craft store) to get the job done, you can also use wool/yarn or a thin string. Embroidery floss, however, will provide you with a softer finish and a much wider choice of colors. 1. To Start with, just tie a normal knot at the base of the earphones (where the plug is). 2. Pin the beginning (shorter end) of the string down to the cord with your finger, and tie a basic friendship bracelet knot over the top of it. 3. Continue until you run out of string, or you want to stop using that colour. If you still have a long-ish tail of string, just trim it so it's about 1-2 cm in length. 4. When you start using another piece of string, repeat step 1 & 2 but instead of just pinning down the string you are using now, also pin down the tail from the last string. 5. Repeat until you have covered the entire cord. 6. When you come to the section where the cord splits into 2 for the ear pieces, just repeat steps 1-5.HAVE FUN!
