DIY Cord Organizer
You can make a DIY cord organizer for cheap using this tutorial! This cable organizer can be made in minutes – we even provide a template. Skills Required: None. You don’t need any prior crafting knowledge to make a cable tidy using this method. You’ll simply be hot gluing felt and attaching Velcro. Even a child can do it (supervised, of course!). One of the complaints I had about other cord organizers is that they still didn’t keep the cable tidy – I could stuff them in a pouch, but then they’d be twisted when they came out.
Keep in mind that there are two parts to Velcro, the male and the female. The male side has the hooks, the female side has the loops. That’s important as you follow the tutorial below, so that when you wrap the cable tidy, it’s secure. With this cable organizer, you have to tidy the cord first before wrapping it around. It works really well, actually. Plus they still keep the cords together even when you throw them in a bag. Trust me – I’ve done it, many times!
