When I saw this pair of Juicy Couture ear muff headphones, I knew I needed to DIY a set. I ended up making two, with requests for many more. BTW, I live in LA so hopefully you can see the irony in this.
My first version was created with off-the-shelf headband and faux fur. With the second pair, I decided to make it a bit more "rock and roll." I dyed my own fabric and designed the headband using leather and spikes I had lying around the studio.
This project is pretty addictive. It's super easy to make and you can style your ear muff headphones in so many different ways! They also make great gifts.
The great part of this design is that the cord is detachable so the cord will not get in the way when you simply want to use them as ear muffs.
For those of you who don't know how to solder, take a look at this tutorial. It's pretty easy. You can also entirely eliminate the soldering portion — and make a set without the detachable cords.
I hope you enjoy the tutorial and please share your creations in the comments below!
