Introduction: Headphones Makeover With Paint and Fabric

Picture of Headphones Makeover With Paint and Fabric

I got a pair of dirty and sad but working headphones from my offices junkpile. They needed some painting and  sewing and ended up stylish in my own freaky taste and happier again.

The microphone was hanging on its wire, this got fixed with hard putty.

For painting I used Hammerite metal paint, but it sticked to plastic very well. Not spray, but brush paint.

The fabric was some scraps of natural silk. I know my uneven stitches can be irritating to some people, but I personally like that definite DIY look enouch.
