How to make… a homemade microphone!
It’s time to channel your inner soul singer! Create your very own microphone out of these simple household objects.
Step 1 – Gather your materials:
For your homemade microphone we’re going to need thefollowing: (1) scissors (2) PVA glue (3) a paper towel tube (4) a styrofoam ball (5) coloured card (6) tin foil
Step 2 – Make the handle:
Decide on the length of your microphone’s handle and cut a
paper towel tube to the appropriate length. Cover the tube with glue and place some coloured card around the outside.
Step 3 – Cover ball with tin foil:
Wrap tin foil tightly around a small ball (a styrofoam ball would work well but here we’ve used an onion!). Tape the ball to the handle securely.
Step 4 – Belt out a hit:
If you want to, feel free to decorate the microphone as you see fit. When finished, take your new microphone and practise those karaoke skills!
