Introduction: Dollar Bill on a String
This one is classic. You attach a string to the underside of a dollar bill and hide behind a corner. And when somebody reaches down... you yank it away. If the victim really doesn't get what's happening, you can keep pulling ant they'll keep chasing. Fun and simple.
Step 1: Gathering Materials
You only need a few, pretty common things for this project:
- A dollar bill (Crisp and clean is more tempting)
- Fishing line (Clear is better, but all I could find was a light blue)
- A small keychain ring (Optional)
- Tape (Scotch)
- Scissors (I couldn't think of anything to put in the parenthesese here)
Step 2: The Main Step
First thing you'll need to do is cut about 6-8 feet of your fishing line. Take one end and tape it on the underside of the bill (Not George's head) with some Scotch tape.
Step 3: Nearly Ready
For ease of pulling, I hooked the other end of the fishing line to a keychain ring. You don't have to do this, but it makes it easier and better looking.
Step 4: Now Go Fooling!
You're done! Now go and fool some people. If you want, you can put some tape on the ground to lightly hold the bill so it doesn't flutter away in the breeze. Make sure to exercise quick reflexes if you are dealing with a $20, $50, $100, or more. If you want, you could attach one of those janitor ID holders (little clip-on thing with spring wound fishing line inside) for quick pull-aways. By the way, I'm not liable for any lost or stolen money!
