The Usage Of Bungee Cords Around The House - Solved All Of His Wife's Problems
FaithTap Staff 12/25/2015
Bungee cords are often neglected and forgotten about in a corner of the garage, but now you can put them to good use all around your home.
With just a few minutes time, they can be transformed into holders, organizers, clamps and everything in between! So grab your bungees and let's get started!
Secure Your Tablecloth
Grommets (the little metal rings seen in the material below) and a bungee cord can help secure your tablecloth in the wind! Simply poke holes in the tablecloth, insert the grommets on both ends and run the bungee cord through the holes!
You can follow more detailed instructions on how to make them on the Martha Stewart website!
Now you'll be able to host a classy, flap-free picnic in the rain or shine! Your time will be spent enjoying your family's presence instead of trying to hold down a rogue tablecloth.
By nailing together 12 wooden beams (eight shorter beams and four longer beams) and attaching nine bungee cords that run the length of the longer beams, you'll be able to create an effective and fun toy storage container!
All of the stuffed animals, plastic cars and beloved dolls strewn across the floor will finally have a home that takes up much less space than a traditional toy box! Just place it in the corner of your child's bedroom so it's basically out of sight and out of mind.
You can actually apply the same box-making tactic to your garage to keep any basketballs, baseballs, volleyballs and soccer balls off the floor! Your car can fit inside without running over anything - phew!
Grocery bags that fall over in the trunk of your car is one of the most annoying things about going shopping. The milk rolls to the far corner, cans are spewn all over and your delicate items, like bread and bananas, get squished!
But now you can use bungee cords to solve the loose bag woes! Simply run a bungee cord through the handles of the bags and attach them to the small clips on each side of your trunk!
This little trick will also make unloading much easier since the bags will be right in arms' reach. Who knew grocery shopping could be so easy?
Give your home an ellegant look by hanging two sets of curtains on one rod using this cool trick! All you have to do is run a bungee cord through the blackout curtains that will sit behind your decorative curtains.
Once the cord is through the lining of the blackout curtain, attach it to the base of the rod holder (like you see in the image below). Once the decorative curtains are hung, no one will be able to see the bungee cord and you'll save yourself hours of frustration in the meantime!
This project take a little work but when it's done, you'll see that it was totally worth it! First you'll need to gather three planks of wood that are all the same size.
Then you'll need three bungee cords of different colors. Cut the hooks off of each of the bungee cords. Next, you should drill holes on either sides of the plank. If you want to give the planks a little something extra, try applying a different stain to each of them!
Once the stain has dried, run the bungee cords through the holes (like you see below). Now tie the ends of the cord behind the planks and hang it from your wall!
You can use wall-safe hangers like this to attach them to your wall. Then you can drape your scarves, sunglasses, headphones and whatever else you'd like from them! How cool!
