Headphones

 Hi,
    Need a headphone for your doll?? My doll wanted it. So thought of making one. I made this with found objects and the result came... so good. I liked it.

          Let's start. We need two grey tablet blisters, a bottle ring(cut it to open), a wire came with price tag of a dress, two rings of blister size(i used dress adjusters), a thin sponge(came with some packing), black cover(we will be using very small piece), scissors, glue, file(use it whenever smooth edges are required), some air hardening clay(optional), black color.



    Next imgs will explain the procedure.
Trim the edges of the blister as in img. While selecting the blisters n rings, make sure they are of the same size.
Cut the tag wire as in above pic. The center part will be our mic.
The arrangement of the parts:
Now make a small hole in blister and insert the wire. To fix it in place, i'm using clay or u can use m-seal.


It looks as in above pic.
  Now the head band part. Take the bottle ring and mark the required  size and cut it as in below imgs.


Now cut the rings, to insert band as in img below.
Cut two circles out of thin sponge and color them  and head band in black.



Let them dry.
 Now cut two thin strips of black cover and glue it to the ring and let it dry. Take the dried sponge circles and glue them inside the ring and the tablet blister on another side. Before gluing the blister with mic, check with headband(by inserting in the cut portion of ring ) and adjust the mouth piece before gluing the blister to ring.  Mouth piece and  ring (open side) should be on opposite sides. See the pics below.


Now insert the headband from both the ear pieces through the open part and glue it in place. You can even insert before gluing the blister to ring. See the img below.


Let it dry completely. That's it.. Headphones are ready for ur doll.
