DIY earphone holder

This project is genius! One of the most frustrating things about having earphones is that whenever you pull them out of your purse, they are incredibly tangled and it takes me about 10 minutes to untangle them. This DIY project fixes that problem by reusing old mint containers! This DIY tutorial comes from the great people at Bloglovin'.


For this project, you will need:
-- Electric drill
-- Icebreakers mint container
-- Keychain
-- Colored or patterned duct tape (optional)

Drill holes for the keychain in the mint container

Use the electric drill to drill holes in the mint container. Make sure you drill at an angle so that the keychain will fit in the holes easier. Thread the keychain through the holes.

Decorate the mint containers

Use the colored or patterned duct tape to decorate the mint containers if you want to. It's completely up to you whether you want to decorate the mint containers.

Put your earphones in the containers and clip them on your purse!

The containers will keep your earphones untangled!
