Washi Tape-Embellished Phone Chargers

Put an end to any family squabbles over whose charger is whose.

Photography by: Aaron Dyer

With one roll of patterned washi tape (make sure there’s a light color in the design) and some markers, everyone can identify—and spruce up—a charger. Wrap the tape around each USB wall charger, USB plug, and phone plug, cutting to fit. Then give each family member a different colored marker to fill in the light areas of the design, identifying his or her charger. Seal with découpage glue and let dry.
