Introduction: Mini Speakers!~

Finaly, 3 weeks and I got it! Mini speakers! very cheap and made out of school supplies. These are great for youngsters... (5-14)
I call these "Foofie speakers" because i was bored in class in 3rd grade and i made up Mr.Foofie!~ You well see him later in this instrutable.


Also Mr.Foofie has a rare case of skin desease
so, comment and help Mr.Foofie stay alive! He would...
accept that.

Step 1: Supplies

supplies and where to get:

Zephyrhills water cups (Any foam cup will work)---FREE! (10 cents)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ipod speakers---10$-50$
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ipod of anykind or mp3--- 25$-200$
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
tissue paper---Free! (Get it at school)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~sciccers---5$-10$

Step 2: Cut Cut!

Cut the tip of the cup off... ( if useing foam cup use a knife and drill a whole in the top ) Make it fit perfect.


This may take time. (1min-5mins... Lot of time!~)

Step 3: ½ Done!

Now, slip in a headphone to one of the cups. Hang it on the edge and get you tessue paper and stuff it in the top of the cup so it holds the headphone in place. Next move the headphone around to point it where you want to. Once you did that only 1 more step to go!~ Also... repeat this step




Note: This will NOT ruin your headphones. Mine are mest up because i tried many other methodsand this one dosen't ruin it!

Step 4: BAM!~

congratz!~ you have finished your first Mini speakers! please comment and give me any suggestions, or if you would like to help Foofie out with you instructables.

you need to use more powerful speakers and an amp these will destroy your earphones if the song is bassy and u have your iPod at max (which u would need to do to hear it.) i can barely hear my iPod on max volume on the earphones from across the room let alone hear any lyrics. and iPod earphones distort at max volume

u dont need to put the pod on max- the idea is that the cone amplifies the sound, i think. but youd need to turn them sideways and put the buds inside

...So. You're not using the cups as little cones to make a megaphone effect? You basically just stick headphones in cups and nothing changes to the volume of the sound itself? I'm confused. Nice instructable anyway.

lol it's for "mini speakers" but it's just for looks and if you raise the volume on your ipod and the song it might work

Have you thought of using a second cup and feeding the earphone in it (sort of like talking in a traffic cone) to amplify the sound? Sort of like this:

Bad. The earphones need an amplifier or something to make the sound able to hear from a distance

This is a cool Instructable! Really easy to do, small, easy, super easy, nice job! I might do this at school, maybe hide it in the bushes, but with super loud speakers, with some strange alien or monkey noises.... yeah... Nice Instructable!
