What I love about this prank is, well... everything. It is very simplistic, cost little to nothing, provides a great scare, and you can not get in trouble for doing it! It consists of telling someone you found a rattlesnake egg and it in the folder, then they of course open it and a very loud rattling noise starts, scaring them very good. And yes I know, rattlesnakes give birth to live young, but most people don't know that or don't think about that because they just want to see it! I have gotten my teachers, friends, and parents with it and it always ends in a good laugh... of course after the screaming and what not.
Step 1: Materials
Here are the materials needed to do this prank:
Clothes Hanger (Metal)
A large washer or some other type of ring with a hole in the center (Mine is a Hard Drive Disk Spacer)
Rubber bands (Probably a lot because you will break a few until you gt used to how much to tighten it)
A manila envelope
A magic maker (not needed, but is a good add-on)
Step 2: Close Hanger
Take your clothes hanger and your envelope and just cut the top off of the clothes hanger and discard the top. Then, Straighten the hanger. Now bend the hanger at a 90 degree angle, 6 inches down. Now find the width of your envelope. Mine is 6". Subtract a half and inch from that and you have the length that the middle of your clothes hanger should be. After you do this bend at 5.5" (for me), a 90 degree angle. Now you will have a lot of clothes hanger left. Just cut that to 6" from the last bend. Now you should have a "U" shaped clothes hanger.
