Who knows how many phone chargers I’ve forgotten in assorted places, left behind (or nabbed) not sure if it was mine. And I’m sure this problem is compounded for those of you who work in an office. Even within our own house, there are continually accusations of swiped cords between family members. So you can imagine my delight when I came across this DIY customization idea. No more questioning cord ownership among family, friends and co-workers, peace and reassurance shall reign!
This will literally take you 5 minutes…
I used a Martha Stewart glitter craft paint I had on hand, then coated the glue/paint with glitter. Regular Elmer’s glue would work too. I don’t know why I chose yellow glitter, but I’m enjoying the fact that it looks like a Peep- I kinda want to lick it.
If you’re not feeling like a do-it-yourselfer today, here are a few great retail options out there:
Customized chargers- called ‘Whooz’, from Uncrate. Super clever- this idea just launched in December with the spiffy possibility of customization. You order comes with all the decals to label charger, it’s parts and headphones.
One of the many gems from from Lunatix Graffiti on Etsy where you can also find many glow in the dark and very-long-cord options for charging.
Chevron glittered charger available from Gifts that Glitter on Etsy.
Monogrammed chargers or get your own sticker collection or vinyl-letter-maker out to transform your charger. You could even put your address and phone number on there so you’re sure to get it back, right?
