You could have little Army men climbing them, you could give the cable a hundred legs like a centipede, etc. You are only limited by your imagination. It’s much better than just living with the mess they make.
Not everyone wants to pay hundreds of dollars for top of the line sound and quality looks. But others take a more minimal approach to speakers. For those people, you can now purchase a kit to create your very own DIY speakers. As a bonus, they’re eco-friendly.
The kit comes with everything you’ll need for the speakers including things to decorate them with. We find it interesting that they don’t say whether the crayons/pencils are eco-friendly or not. The cardboard set of speakers can be found for $18 through Urban Outfitters. It would be a great project for the kids.
