    I have looked up on the net and can not find a tutorial that show how to make a cord cover that will hand down on the wall. It is a light and they do not like the cord showing any ideals?

    the ones i have seen are just a fabric tube that is made longer than the cord and kinda scrunched up to look gathered if that makes sense

    How do you get the scrunched up look when it is gong to be hanging down. Want the tube slide down also?

    You could put elastic in it at intervals to hold it in place.

    If you make it of very thin material it may drop down, but making it of quilting material or other medium to heavy weight fabric it will stay in place on it's own - the fabric is bulky enough to keep it from flattening out.

    Thank you that is a wonderful; ideal. I thought of one long strip but placing it intervals is a great. This way the seams across will be colled so it will not show as much. thanks again :P :P
