Sometimes I take a peek into our guest room and office space and think, wow one baby step forward and 87 big steps backward. It seems with each small progression of updating the room, more stuff is pilled high and things are in constant mass chaos. That’s normal though… right? It always gets really messy before it gets really clean, at least that’s what I keep telling myself.
Today I am sharing How to wrap an Open Light fixture cord. I took an inexpensive Open Light Fixture and wrapped the cord for a little extra pizzaz of my own.
I bought three different yarns and planned on wrapping the cord with all of them in varying lengths, but after I had used a portion of all three… I decided I didn’t like that look at all. So, in the end, I just went with this Mint Green Yarn color for the whole thing.
How to wrap a plug-in light cord:
I started by doubling the yarn and cutting it off at about a 5-6′ length. I know zero “knot” knowledge, so there is probably a knot or string term for this ‘mickey mouse’ looking loop thing I have going.
Hold the center of your doubled yarn over the start of your cord and then pull the two pieces through, as shown below.
Then using your double yarn, start looping and looping AND looping. The double yarn makes the work go twice as fast, so that’s a big plus.
I love the slight graphic vibe wrapping the cord, brings to the amazing little light.
I’m also highly contemplating wrapping a few other desk lamp cords. I’ve fallen in love with that look!
