Hide Those Outdoor Cords

I came up with an amazing solution to a common problem. Actually, I should give credit where credit is due:( My genius man did it but I LOVE IT! All those cords that come together for your christmas decorations and lights on the outside, you know the ones. I hate seeing all the plugs. But, you can’t get away from it. Or can you?

Introducing our cord keeper and also pretty decoration itself:


YEP, it’s a coffee container spray painted gold and with a little notch taken out of either side. Now all the end plugs go into it. I added a little bow for good measure. It seems huge in the picture but look at the full scale.


You barely notice it’s there, and if you do, you just think it’s supposed to be:) I LOVE IT! Plus, even though they are outdoor cords, it keeps them from the weather. Now, go on, use those empty cans you have laying around and hide those cords!
