DIY Leather Cord Keepers

DIY Leather Cord Keepers

I’m a bit of an organizing freak, so much so that I posted a series of organizing tips and DIYs for shoes, jewelry, files, scarves, and purses. I love seeing the finished results of a good organizing session or project. I’ve gone through several methods of organizing the wires and cords for my tech, but never found anything I truly loved, so I set out to make my own cord keepers. Continuing my trend of DIY’s that are easy, uses minimal amounts of materials and are quick to make, these leather cord keepers only require 4 materials and took less than 10 minutes to make!

Materials:

DIY Leather Cord Keepers

Leather – get whatever size you‘d like, I only wanted to make a few cord keeps, so I  got a 4“ x 8“ piece of leather.

Leather Hole Puncher | Hitch Fasteners |Scissors

Directions:

Cut the leather down to sizes you’d like. Mine are 2” x 3.5” (for smaller cords and headphones) and 2” x 6” (for bigger cords like the one for my computer charger).

For the first cord keeper, measure and mark where the center of the pieces of leather and ¼” down is.

For the other cord keepers, use the first cord keeper to mark where the fastener and hole will go (it’s much faster than breaking out the ruler each time).
