DIY Yarn-Wrapped Sconce Cords

I bought these sconces for cheap at Urban Outfitters a few years ago. They're super cute and look much more expensive than they really are. I had painted the cords to match the walls of our guest room back then, but I wanted to reuse the sconces in Evie's room and the dark forest green color needed to be painted out or changed.

I've always loved Schoolhouse Electric's cloth cord styles and thought I could do something similar here with just a dab of glue and a bit of colorful yarn.

You only need glue when you're starting and ending, and the tighter you wrap the yarn, the better! I found it was helpful to wrap the yarn around a glue stick or a popsicle stick before wrapping the cord. It helps keep everything tight and untangled. Also, just to be safe, I didn't wrap the cords all the way down to the plug (I left a good two feet unwrapped).

I love when simple projects make inexpensive finds look extra special! The project cost me nothing and I was happy to give new life to these sconces we've been storing for years! :)
