What It Is
Earphone Couture-Wrap It! is a new craft kit from Alex Toys that brings a dose of fashion to the plain look of an ordinary pair of earphones. The kit comes with a plain white pair of earphones with pink ear buds that girls can transform into a fun fashion accessory by using a similar method to creating friendship bracelets or hair wraps. Follow the instructions to tie five colorful pieces of embroidery floss into knots around the cord of the earphones, alternating colors as you work. You can also use the beading thread and needle to string colorful beads wherever you chose.
Why It’s Fun
This craft kit offers a fun activity that kids who love listening to music will really enjoy. Plus, it's a fun and personalized way to jazz up the often dull look of plain earphones.
Who It’s For
Earphone Couture-Wrap It! is for ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The directions were okay, but could have offered a bit more guidance. For example, you will likely need to add more thread as you work and knotting over a shortened piece of thread can be frustrating. The beading needle and thread can also be a bit difficult to work with.
We worked on the craft a few hours over the course of three days to complete, so kids who have the patience to complete the craft will get the most out of it.
Earphones are compatible with iPhones, iPods, iPads, and other MP3 devices.
