However, this hanger is going to be for cables. And you can put it on the desk for quick reach as well. Something I thought would be cool to use and you guys will see the finished look in few minutes.
There are a lot of cables, but this one will be for chargers and headphones. The headphone is something I added because it could fit. I’m sure we all have a lot of chargers and sometimes it gets messy if there is no place to put it.
So this project will help you to organize it in one place and it’s easy to make at home.
For This project will be using cardboard and paper, my usual materials haha. Which things we can find easily in the house. It doesn’t matter what cardboard because a white layer will be added later.
Also, the important tools which for this project will be pencil, gun glue, and scissor. I don’t usual mention these, but I’m sure everyone already know that for paper and cardboard, we use them.
The papers on this project will be, normal A4 papers. Three colors, red, white, and blue.
Anyways, lets see what this project all about and the things we will use. There are few things that I cut and made which are important.
The required items
The first thing that I cut for this project is as you can see in the picture above. Cardboard with 27cm long and 20cm wide. This will what we will use to hang the cables and headphones. It’s a cardboard wall if you would call it haha.
Second, I’m going to need a base where I can put everything on it. So the picture above is a base with 23cm wide and 24cm long. It will be enough to put everything on it.

It would be plain if I only make this project to hang the cables. So I thought to add more to it. And that’s what we will use the cardboard showing in the picture above.
Two circles and few cardboard pieces to hold them together. This will be a stand and you will see in a bit it for what. Keep reading to know what it will be for.
Next, I’m going to need hangers for the cables. this project is fully cardboard and paper. So the picture above is going to be three hangers.
Two small circles and cardboard sticks to hold them together will make a hanger. You will see how it will look in a bit if you haven’t seen cardboard hangers haha.
What a project without a decoration, you know? so these blue and red circles will be used to give this a nice look at the end.
This is not it, I still have one more idea to decorate this project. You guys will see it when adding the white layer to the cardboard wall. Something blue, and can be seen in the sky when it’s raining heavily. Do you have any idea what it will be?
So the last thing that we will need is four pieces of cardboard. And I will make a cube out of these which will be on the circle. I showed you earlier. This will look cool when I add the colors, don’t worry.
One more thing that I used on this project. is Two pieces of cardboard with 5cm long and 4cm wide to hold the cardboard wall later. I had pictures of this but it got deleted and now I don’t have a picture to show. However, you will see it in the finished look.

The making of the project
Now that I showed you guys the important things which we will need for this project. Let’s start building it and reveal the finished look.
I’m going to start easy and the first to build is the cube. As you can see in the picture above. I glued the four cardboard pieces together from the edge and it’s the usual way to make a cube.
However, the fourth piece is not shown in the picture because I paused a little bit to take a picture and flex that I made a progress hahaha. I’m kidding, to talk about now lol.
I also added the white layer before going to the next thing. And as you can see in the picture above, the finished look of the cube without the colors though haha.
The circle stand
The next thing I did was making the circle stand. And it’s easy too. I just glued cardboard with a plus sign. So I can glue the two circles together and give this stand more strength.
Here I added the white layer to the circle stand. And I glued the paper around the circle from the side. However, I decided to add more colors to it. I changed it to the color red, but you see it white in the picture above.
And then I started working on the hangers. As you can see in the picture above. Just like the circle stand but this time it won’t stand and it’s longer haha.
It’s easy, I glued the cardboard sticks because they are long on a plus sign so the two small circles come together and make a long hanger haha.
This is how it look when I added the white layer to it. For this one, I’m keeping it white. However, we will need three of these which allow us to hang more cables.
One thing you should pay attention to is don’t squeeze the hangers too much. Otherwise, the look of it will be ruined.
I used to work on the base first, and this time I put it before the last step. As you can see, there is nothing to do with it, but to add the white layer to it. This will allow us to add more colors and decoration to it.
The cardboard wall
Since this will be on a desk. I made a cardboard wall as you can see in the picture above. And I opened three holes for the three hangers and added the white layer.
I couldn’t keep the wall plain white. So I decided to add blue belts on the side. And I cut 4cm wide and the same length as the wall. You can choose any colors you want.
For this, I wanted to make sure that everything is measured right. So I drew lines on the wall where the belt will be glued. So 2cm of the belt on each side.
Well, the last thing before moving on. I said earlier that there will be another decoration and you can see it in the sky when it’s raining. Are you guys ready to see it?
BOOM! I don’t know if you guessed it right but it’s the blue lighting and I already glued it on the wall. As you can see in the picture above. This is a last-minute idea and I thought would be cool to add it. You can add any decoration you want though.
The process of gluing everything together
Alright, now I will show you the process of gluing everything together.
So Enough talking, and lets see the project coming together. Enjoy!
Alright, here is the finished look of this project. As you can see in the picture above, I added the two cardboard pieces to hold the cardboard wall in case of adding more cables.
Here is how it looks when you put the cables on the hangers. Also, you can make one for headphones and it would fit perfectly. If you have long chargers, you can fold them one or more.
