Introduction: Ouija Board

Picture of Ouija Board

i will show you how to make an ouija board, a ouija board is a "portal to the spiritual universe" all in a little board!

Step 1: Materials

you will need:

a piece of cardboard around 1 foot long and 8 inch tall
a round donut shaped piece

and that is all you need to make an ouija board!

Step 2: The Board

Picture of The Board

get your cardboard and marker and write "yes" on the top left hand corner of the board. write "no" on the top right side. a couple inches below that wright all the letters of the alphabet so every letter is about a centimeter apart. below that write numbers 1 through 9 so they are also spaced about 1 centemeter apart. at the very bottom of the board write "goodbye" and that is your board. optional: i put some crosses on my board to ward off evil spirits, i suggest you do to.

Step 3: Donut Piece

Picture of Donut Piece

find a circular 3D shape witha whole in the middle. the whole should be able to show most of the letters/numbers on your board. i used some kind of plastic thing i found.

Step 4: How to Use

Picture of How to Use

to use an ouija board place your donut shape in the middle of the board, put two fingers on the donut shape lightly and move the donut shape around with your fingers for about 10 seconds, then put it back to the middle without takeing your fingers of. then ask the board a question and keep your two fingers on the donut shape and the donut shape will move on its own! see what response it sais to the question and keep asking more and more!

Step 5: Your Done!

Picture of Your Done!

WARNING: an ouija board is NOT a toy! it can be dangerouse because it can sometimes let spirits out into your home! some times evil spirits! i am not responsible for any demonic possesion!

You can use the Shoebox Telephone method to call a particular spirit.

yea be very carefull like it said in the instructable. these are REAL!

I'm doing it alone and nothing happened and I don't believe these work

Sometimes it doesn't work with one person part the reason own the rules is don't do it alone. And if there is a spirt and it contacts you while your alone. You ducked Bc it mean it's a strong spirt than can posses you

Can I ask from what country is your Grandmother is from??? And which Grandmother????

Most times when a person gets a spirit attached to them it's due to them or closing the door to the other side. When ou are finished using one of these you should say goodbye to the spirit and thank him for talking to you. They should then move the moving glass to the word goodbye. If they don't then tell it again that you are going to go. If it still doesn't then you must tell goodbye and drag it there yourself.

Some things to look out for are that the moving glass starts to count down from 9 if it does then this is a bad spirit coming in. Or if it starts to move to all of the corners you need to immediately close the door to the other side.

One way to stay safe is before you start talking make sure to put a ring of salt around you and the board put Quartz in the room and burn incense. Also only do it with two or more people because by your self there is a higher chance for it to latch onto you. Do not ask it questions such as when you will die because it might lie to have you keep coming back so it could one day latch on. Also before you start using one of these tools make sure to say out loud that you are only looking for good spirits. That you are being watched over and nothing can hurt you. Then continue on.

Make sure not to be drunk when doing this or high and not sick or tired as they have a better chance to latch on.

But most importantly remember to CLOSE THE DOOR WITH THEM SAYING GOODBYE.

guys, ouija boards are fake btw. oui means yes and so does ja, and also, they cant contact spirits, they were originally sold as toys for kids. Plus, someone mentioned tarot cards, which btw are just another type of playing card...

nhouchins (author)2011-10-30

Me and My friends did this last night, We talked to her dead baby sister. We said is this Nevah? It went to yes. We said ,"who killed you?" It said"Mom" then it spelled out"good bye" It scared the mess out of us. I told my friend to get rid of that ! Because then it starteed to movee to the pentagraam! Howeeveer yooou spell it. But that scared us to deead. >.<

Paul J Sanderlin (author)2009-10-13

ouija boards do not have anything to do with the devil, but with spirits, good or bad. if its a bad spirit, seek spiritual help to get rid of it, if its a good spirit  well thats good.
@ARVash, i have a question, how is it spiritual suicide? its a divinatory tool like tarot, is particapating in tarot commiting spiritual suicide? its just a tool to speak with spirits thats all. 

pikathebudgie1234 (author)2008-07-07

I made and have a ouija board and I have a priest,holy wate and my holy water that has been bleesed 30 times.and there fore I'm SAFE from the ouija board.

cry_wolf (author)2008-04-11

I advise being careful with these. It may seem like a joke, but this things real. Ouija boards can condemn spirits to your house if used wrongly. I advise staying away from them for its just like playing with fire, but instead Satan.

Aar000n3y (author)cry_wolf2008-04-11

Are there actually any recorded cases of an Ouija board causing a lot of strange events right afterwards? I'm not attacking the idea of the spirits and Ouija boards through this, I just don't know.

my friends decided to use one and not tell me a few months ago so I was pretty freaked out by the conversations of invisible people that seemed to come from right behind me and from the odd placeings of things throughout certain rooms of my house the faucets would turn on and off and when I would turn on my bed room light the kitchen light would turn on I was freaking out and stayed in a hotel for a few days after I kept seeing shadows moving about the bathroom while showering and upon inspecting the fogged up mirror read LEAVE US I was thinking I was going insane so I asked some friends to stay over while I went to the store I came home to find them waiting in their cars they said they had a terrible feeling of dread and worry and that they felt as if they were being watched they also said they thought they heard conversations (like I had heard) and that they kept seeing odd shadowy mist in the form of a being rush by knowing that I wasn't the only one noticing I called my friend steve and asked to stay with him within the hour he said of course when I got to his house I explained why I had to suddenly move his jaw dropped he then told me how him and some other friends had used a ouija board in my living room when I was in Florida he deeply apoligized and hugged me he said he had to witness things for himself so he went back and came out with scratches on the backs of his legs he said his sister called so he sat down and felt a burning on the back of his legs when he checked he found the scratches I told him we had to leave I took my beloved pets out and went back to steves house I found a priest who did an excorcisim on my house it seemed to only piss them off after 3 weeks of peace at my wits end I decided to deal with it myself I went in there slammed the door open and screamed at them to get the hell out I was amazed at their reaction the doors started slamming the faucets turned on and off the pictures and things flew from the walls I was piss myself scared so I just kept screaming at them that I wasn't afraid and for them to leave the house shook and there was a loud groan then dead calm there have been no more occurrences since then I strongly advise you do not use these

Well i read about this one account when a user burned an Ouija board, which caused a demon to be condemned to the house. This thus caused the Catholic church to be called and have a priest cast the demon out. One of my friends also happens to claim that she and her friends spelled out "gun" on one of them and then it was reported that someone was shot on their street that night.

Aar000n3y (author)cry_wolf2008-04-11

Those are just stories, I was asking if there are any recorded cases.

cry_wolf (author)Aar000n3y2008-04-11

Oh, im not entirely sure what you mean. (sorry) The account with the demon being condemned to the house and the church being involved was on tv however. A whole report was done on it, including interviews with the people in the house.

Aar000n3y (author)cry_wolf2008-04-11

I mean any kind of incident with an Ouija board that was documented by a credible source. If you have a link for that story I'd like to check it out.

do u need 2 people to use an ouija bored

Aar000n3y (author)2008-04-11

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking, but if anybody has any kind of credible source, I'm interested in it.

Nesagwa (author)Aar000n3y2008-04-12

There arent any. These were invented by hucksters to use during seanses (along with many other gadgets and gizmos.) Good clean fun to play with, but not to be taken seriously. Its just felt pen and cardboard after all.

Aar000n3y (author)Nesagwa2008-04-12

Yes, that's the way I feel too, but many people do take them seriously. And I'm just wondering if any of them have any kind of information about events afterwards to try and back up any of it up.

ARVash (author)Aar000n3y2008-04-18

I don't suggest ouija boards, if you believe in anything about souls at all, this is the equivalent of committing spiritual suicide.

tomonto (author)2008-04-12

I'm scared of Ouiji boards because i know as soon as I try it and it spells something like "bbhuvfcn hbhn 757699943902930" my cat will knock something over and I will have to hide in the garage trash heap until my mommy gets home...
