Step 1: What You Need

- A speaker (i used an old headphone as speaker, yes i know this doesnt amplify my volume but it was loud enough)

- A box

- A bit off netting ( i used stockings)

- An exacto knife

- A hot glue gun

Step 2: Tracing

first trace the outline off the speaker to the back side of the box so you know how big to make the cut-out.

Step 3: The Hole

Cut the hole a bit smaller this makes sure you have edges to glue the speaker itself on later.

Step 4: The Netting

Glue the piece of netting in the inside of the box. This is pure for looks and not necessary at all.

Step 5: The Speaker

Glue the speaker in place on the inside of the box. Make sure it's really sturdy so it wont fall off if it gets a nudge.

Step 6: The Wire

I glued the wire to my box so it would stay in place and not make to much sound if you move the box around

Step 7: The Finish

To finish it off make a hole in the side to run the jack plug cable trough. This is bassicly it, you can decorate the box however you want after this.
