Step 1: Materials

At first you are going to need patience to find some heavy gauge wires. Do not run away if you do not have one. Search for some low gauge wires and wrap around to make a strong piece. Make sure that it will hold the weight of your camera because you do not want to see the LCD/ Lens shattering into pieces right in front of your eyes.

Step 2: Cutting the Wire

cut the wire into

1) 14'' X 1

2) 7'' X 3

Step 3: Prepaing the Wire

take the 14'' inch ( 1'' stripped from each end) and bend it right in the middle. Take a pliers and punch them hard until it looks like two straws are lain together.

Step 4: Making the Legs

Take those 7'' pieces ( 1'' stripped on one end only) and bend them into 90 degree angle.

Step 5: Wrapping the Legs

Take the U shaped wire. then start wrap the stripped ends of the 7'' wires to the U shaped wire. it doesn't matter how you wrap it just keep it balanced. after you finished wrapping the wires it will look something like in the picture.

Step 6: Attaching the Bolt

Now take a Bolt that fits your camera and wrap it up with the stripped end of the U shaped wire. Wrap around the bolt tightly and then put a nut and screw it tightly until it stops turning. 

Step 7: The Finished Product

when its finished it should look something like this.
