Step 1: Gather Stuff

You need
-a normal tennis ball
-a small speaker( I found mine at Walgreens)

Take the razor and cut the tennis ball. Try to spear the razor back and forth into the ball. When you're finished check to see if the hole is a little more than an inch wide.

Step 3: Put the Speaker in the Ball

After you finish cutting, place the speaker in the hole.

Step 4: Place Tape Over Opening

Place tape over opening

Step 5: Cut Place for Switch

You'll need to turn on your speaker so cut a hole for the switch

Step 6: Turn On

Step 7: Finished!

Turn over the speaker and plug in!

DO NOT WORRY, THE SOUND IS NOT MUFFLED BY THE TENNIS BALL :)
