DIY iPhone Cord Protector

How many of you have had your phone charger cord (or any cord for that matter chewed on)? As in man’s best friend decides he likes the phone charger cord too! Well in my case it was the cat! I could see out of the corner of my eye my dog quietly snickering in the corner as I was chastising the cat!

I don’t know what Apple puts in their phone charger cords but I swear it’s crack for kitties. The cats just gravitate towards them! They have yet to meet an Apple cord they didn’t like. Gah! What is a girl to do? This is my solution…

cord

FYI, you can do this for any cord; even hanging lamp or chandelier cords you find unsightly! Try fabric that matches your walls to camouflage or bright fun fabrics for a pop of color!

To make this I had a very long ribbon that was used to tie a comforter closed. Of course I saved it knowing it would come in handy. But, if you don’t have a ribbon just cut any fabric to size: About 2 inches wide by double the length of cord you are covering. Fold fabric in half and sew along edge. You can turn fabric inside out so the seam doesn’t show, however I left mine unturned as I liked the contrast in thread color. There really is no wrong way. Just get those cords covered!!!!!

And you know what? It works! I haven’t lost a cord since this invention! I can’t guarantee the same results for you, but try it. What do you have to lose…well except for another cord!

I’d love to hear what you think about this easy to do project! Drop me a comment below. 🙂

  1. Lol I thought it was just our cat being weird. She’s full grown, but only a year old it’s hard to remember she’s still a kitten technically. We keep all our cords and electronics in a wicker basket (covered) from Hobby Lobby by our couch

      • Lol same. I’m thoroughly enjoying your helpful little diy projects.

      • I’m glad you find something useful here. It’s been years and years of my families encouragement. Fun to do the projects as well. Saves money and you get the outcome you want. Like when I laid hardwood floors…I also stained them the way I wanted. Please keep coming back. 🙂

  2. Is there anything you can’t do? What a great idea. Couldn’t help but laugh when I read about the cats dislike for apple products! They aren’t alone. I believe Samsung trains cats to eat Apple cords!! Looking forward to reading about the next project on the list. Be well.

    • I wish I could post more ideas and what not. It’s difficult for me to find the time to write. Thank goodness for the smart phone as I can still connect while being driven somewhere or in bits and pieces during my day. I am building concrete steps at the moment. One more to go, then I need to learn how to work with epoxy as I want to lay pretty rock over the concrete. I tell you since making the cord protectors I haven’t lost one yet! Those aren’t cheap! Samsung is smart! Teehee 😉 Happy adventuring with your buddy. Mine found something to roll in while I was out yet again mowing. Off I go to bathe him! Take care! 🙂

    • Please do. This is also a great way to decorate cords you just want to cover up! Also you can do this for the hanging lamps withy the chains. If you get tired of looking at the chain you can do this treatment in it. Change it with the seasons! Hahaha. 🙂

    • I can’t guarantee it, but I have yet to loose a cord since doing this! The savings!!! Right?! You know the cost of these cords? Crazy! Hahaha thank you for kindly commenting. Take care Carissa! 🙂
