Halloween is almost here, and costume choices have been made.
For me this year, Ms. Frizzle is the obvious choice. I’m pretty excited for Halloween.
By excited, what I really mean is I’m obsessed. Pumpkins, Pie and those slutty cop costumes, I love it all.
But for this week, I did a summertime throwback circa 2002.
When I was a kid, out at the cabin, we would make these round bracelets with different coloured yarn. We called them the Chinese staircase, and they were awesome.
This week I took a new spin on that old craft. HOW? you’re asking yourself.
Well, my loyal reader.. I amped up every 10 year old girls favourite pastime by adding headphones.
I got the idea from a girl at the gym who was rocking this look and decided I had to make them for myself.
The one thing I didn’t account for was how long headphone wires are. They’re like, really, really long.
But thats besides the point, because the craft itself, is awesome.
For my pair, I chose four different coloured strings. Really, you could use any number and all that will change is the width of you cord. The more you add, the thicker it will be. Also you’ll want to cut your pieces of string VERY long, because as I mentioned.. headphone wires are REAL long.
Below, I’ve attached a link to a simple guide that explains the stitch. If you’re unsure how that works, check it out. But, if you already know the stitch, don’t even bother.
Just tie a knot at the bottom of your cord, right by the headphone jack, and get going.
I’ve attached some picture of my headphones and their new look. Not complete, but still just adorable.
The cord, looking cute.
Some might argue I was a bit excessive with the string… Haters gonna hate yunno?
That’s all for now,
Enjoy the ‘ween.
Can’t wait to see the costumes.
