Even the littlest voices can lead the cheer with this sturdy homemade megaphone.

What you'll need

  • 22- by 28-inch piece of poster board
  • Clear Con-Tact paper
  • Pencil and ruler
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided tape
  • Colored tape
  • Craft knife
  • Metal cabinet pull (under $2 at hardware stores)
  • 2 paper fasteners

How to make it

  1. Mighty Megaphone - Step 1

    Cover one side of the poster board with the Con-Tact paper, then use a pencil and ruler to mark the board as shown. Cut out the shaded area.

  2. Line the long right-hand edge with double-sided tape. Flip the board over, being careful not to let the tape stick to anything, and line the right-hand edge on that side with another strip of tape.

  3. With the Con-Tact paper on the outside, roll the board into a cone and press together the two strips of tape to secure the shape. Trim the ends to even the edges, then decorate the megaphone with colored tape.

  4. Mighty Megaphone - Step 4

    For the handle, use a craft knife to cut 2 small slits along the seam, spaced the width of the cabinet pull's holes. Then attach the pull at the slits with paper fasteners.
