The Blogger’s DIY: Hack Your Headphones With Lego, Thread and Studs

There are many great things about winter, like mulled wine and staying in bed and hot toddies and weekends when you don’t have to go outside ever. But if you do have to venture out into the harsh outside world, you might as well do it with some souped up headphones that double as super rad ear-warmers.

The clever people behind Brit + Co. have rounded up seven ways to make your music not only sound good but look good too, starting with this embroidery technique for boring Plattan headphones. Got thread? A needle? Satisfactory hand-eye coordination? Actually the last ingredient is only to stop your own blood become part of the pattern, since any needlework mess-ups are easily erasable with this DIY 101.

And if you’re looking for something more ostentatiously nostalgic, check out the amazing Lego headphones soup-up pictured below. More ideas here.
