Get sharp photos using a wall, fence, tree branch, door, car hood, bamboo pole, or a signpost.
Velcro, bungee or hang from a suction cup with the optional mounting holes.
Step 1: Mark and Cut
Wear good safety goggles. Blades can slip or snap.
Mark three tripod feet on the edge of the ball with a pen or pencil.
Each flat foot is about 3/4 inch (18mm) wide.
There should be about 2 inches (50mm) between the edges of the feet.
Cut arches between the feet to make the basic tripod shape. Arch size and shape are not important.
Cut a 3/4 inch hole in the top of the ball.
Optional step: cut a side slit in the top hole for more tilt.
Optional step: make bungee cord holes above each foot.

Step 2: Make Washers
Each should be about 1.5 inches across.
Drill, cut, or punch 1/4 inch holes in their centers.

Step 3: Assemble
It should be 1/4 inch diameter and have 20 threads per inch. This is close to the standard camera mount size. Since the bolt is soft plastic it will not strip or damage your camera.
Push the bolt through a washer so it sticks out of the felt side.
Then put the bolt through the tripod base from underneath.
And finally press the other washer on the top.
Now you can screw the tripod into the mounting hole on the bottom of your camera.
