Now what if I told you that you don’t necessarily have to stick with those cheap earmuffs? Blogger StacyD from Does it Pew? has published a step-by-step guide on how to transform your cheap headphones into an expensive pair.

It really doesn’t look that hard, the instructions are simple and there are pictures for every step. You’ll have to get everything on her What you will need-list, but that shouldn’t be a problem, because she links to where you can get the ingredients.
