DIY Hama Bead Earphones

I remember a time when it was really cool to have earphones with white wire. Only those who had bought an iPod had these white wires hanging down outside their jacket. Nowadays everyone has white wires it seems. So if you wanna stand out, why not make your own DIY Hama bead earphones. Not only does it look nice, you also avoid wire mess.

Pick out your favorite Hama beads and use a pointy scalpel to slit them. Use your thumbnails and drag the bead downwards. Then bend the bead open and slip it around the wire. This can be a nice accessory to your outfit on your national day – use the colors of your flag. In my case I would use red, white and blue beads on the 17th of May, which is Norway’s National Day.

  1. What a creative idea! I am quite hard on my iPod headphones, so other than the risk of having to re-bead them every couple of months… I would be totally on board. :) This could also be a cute gift for someone in their favorite colors.
