DIY Phone Amplifier and Stand 12



This craft was born out of necessity as I couldn’t find the little Bluetooth speaker we have for our phones.  So instead we went low tech and created a DIY phone amplifier and stand from a toilet roll and a couple of paper cups.

It is remarkable just how much of a difference this simple DIY phone amplifier and stand makes.  It ensured that we could all hear the music.  It was also a fab way to learn about sound waves, so yes we explored the science of sound too.  It is turning a fairly omnidirectional speaker (on the bottom of the phone) into a directional antenna. It is “pointing” the sound towards the listener rather than to the bottom of the table.

How to make a DIY Phone Amplifier and Stand

DIY Phone Amplifier and Stand

Take your phone and trace around the bottom on the toilet roll.  If you have a larger phone or want to do this for a tablet then you could use a kitchen roll tube.

Cut out the slot.  We found it easier to make the initial cut with the craft knife before using scissors.

Again we found it easier to make the initial cuts with the craft knife before using a small pair of scissors.

Do the same with the other cup.

We covered our tube and cups with monochrome washi tape.  However, you could colour them in or paint them.

Once you have decorated your tube and cup, slot your tube into the cups and et voila!
