Step 1: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

Find a working vent fan from any broken down electronics

Figure out which of the 2/3 wires in the back are the positive and negative ends.

Step 2: Step 2

Attach 2 sticks, or more if needed, on the sides of the fan using a glue gun.
These sticks will help make the fan stand upright.

Step 3: Step 3

Glue together the end of the stick to form a 'V' that would go inside the cardboard tube

Step 4: Step 4

Find a cardboard tube big enough that will support the fan to stand upright.
Put in the 'V' end of the stick inside of the cardboard tube and apply glue inside to keep it from moving around.

Step 5: Step 5

Find an old adapter that would work on the fan. In my case, I found a fan that runs on 12 volts, and luckily an adapter that would work on it.

Step 6: Step 6

Picture of Step 6

Cut off the end of the adapter and find which of the wires is positive and negative.

Attach the positive end of the adapter to the positive end of the fan. Do the same for the negative.  (ignore the yellow wire :P )
Tape the wires together and you're done!
