Intro: DIY Puzzle / Magic Spring
In this instructable, I will show you how to create a nifty little puzzle for a few dollars, that you can then share.
Step 1: Material
You will need:
- Some hair curlers... those spiky cylinders that they use at the women's hairdresser for perms.
That is where you get the spring from
- Some key rings...
Pick a ring that is just a few millimeters larger than the cylinders.
I got the whole lot for 4$ at the dollar store and I was able to make a puzzle for each members of my family as an extra with each gift last christmas.
Step 2: Making
- Take the curler apart
- Compress the spring so it is slightly more compact.
You may have to adjust the size a little bit.
That's it. you now have a puzzle to impress your friends.
Watch the video on how to make it, and how to execute the trick!
