you might not be able to clear that clutter on your desk - but you can at least make it look better!
i’m certainly not the first to wrap cords in other stuff, but mostly i’ve seen DIYs done with extension cords. i personally don’t have a big extension cord problem in my house. i have a big white apple cord and camera cord and wacom tablet cord problem. specifically on my desk. so i decided i had WAY too many cords sitting around to not do anything about it.

    sew the knot together a ton – if you’re using nylon thread, it’s practically invisible so don’t worry about how it looks. sew until it feels really tight.

    Step 3

    sit there and wrap. do it really tightly and keep pushing towards the end you sewed.

  • Step 4

    once you reach the end and have pushed the bungee or twine as far towards the other end as you can, keeping it all tight – tie a knot in the other end, cut and light with your lighter. sew to secure with your needle and thread.
