Smartphones are very useful nowadays, especially during our fast-paced lives. Technology changes everything, including the way we consume music and video. Old school camcorders and boom boxes can now be found on our so-called “smartphones”. There are a lot of speakers and sound improvement gadgets for our beloved mobile phone, but most of them would cost you an arm or a leg. Here, we will be making a very inexpensive, upcycled mobile speaker that will greatly improve the way we listen to music.

Step 1: Gather all the materials needed for this project:

  • Pringles can
  • 2 small plastic or paper cups
  • Hot glue
  • Cutter
  • 5-inch thick pink ribbon
  • Short-pointed scissors
  • Black marker
  • A piece of construction paper
  • Small designing materials e.g. star, buttons, etc.


Step 2: Get one of the plastic or paper cups and using the bottom of it, make a mark on the Pringles can. Make two for both sides.

Step 3: Cut the marked circles on the can.

Step 4: Wrap the whole construction paper around the Pringles can using hot glue



Step 5: Hot glue the pink ribbon on the side end of the can.

Step 6: Hot glue the pink ribbon on the opposite side as well.

Step 7: Make a small opening on the construction paper using a cutter, in reference to the hole that was made in step 3.

Step 8: Totally cut the circles on the paper using the short-pointed scissors.

Step 9:  Get your smartphone and place it on the mid-top part of the Pringles can. Use a marker to get the exact measurements of the mobile phone.

Step 10: Cut the marked part in step 9 so that the smartphone fits on the can perfectly.

Step 11:  Remove the bottom part of the plastic or paper cups.

Step 12: Insert the plastic or paper cups into the two holes.

Step 13: Hot glue the insertion point of the cups and the can to avoid sound leakage.

Step 14: Decorate the speaker can.

Step 15: Insert your mobile phone and check if it fits well. Make any necessary adjustments.

Step 16: Done! You can now use your cool Pringles can mobile speaker!

The volume of the mobile sound will improve by as much as 50% since the sound is tightly contained in the can. This can be used for sound tripping or maybe a movie marathon on your mobile. This is easy and inexpensive to produce! So, what are you waiting for?! Try this Pringles can mobile speaker and be amazed with the results!
