Nowadays everyone has the same old Apple gear. Bleh. Especially working in an office or group work station your charger will get mixed in with everyone else’s. Here is a very simple way to make your charger stand out and look beautiful.
Here’s what you need to make this happen:
-Charger (or could also do a phone/ipad/nook/kindle charger)
-Magic Eraser (if your charger is really dirty and no longer white)
-Stickers/sharpie or your choice of decorative items
What’s great about this project is that you can customize to your taste. Right now I’m into simple glam with gold accents! I chose gold washi tape and a gold sticker that I put my initials on. I got all my supplies at Paper Source.
First, prep your charger by making it clean and white with the magic eraser. Then make sure whatever surface your washi tape is going on has been dusted with the microfiber cloth. We want to make sure that washi tape stays in place.
Now you can choose your design! I always suggest putting the same color washi tape at either end of your charger so when it’s plugged in alongside a million other electronics you know exactly what to unplug when you’re ready to go. I chose this streamline gold washi tape for that.
I also began my design by placing a gold circle sticker in the center of that white cube (over the apple).
It already looks better right? Now I wanted to add something a little decorative with my gold doilies washi tape. I decided to wrap it around my monogram.
How gorgeous is that? I just love this new design. Plus whenever my “work stuff” looks pretty I am a little more encouraged to actually get to work… ha! I’m not the only one, right?
There are about a zillion options for washi tape and stickers so you could customize this in any way for a guy or girl of any age. Make it your own! Send me your designs after you complete it – I’d love to see! I adore bringing crafts and art into every day use items. Life needs a little more fun and beauty even in the small things. Maybe ESPECIALLY in the small things. Enjoy!
