Products needed for this DIY project:
1. PVC pipe
2. Thin rope
3. Hex nuts
*Just with one unit of these three cheap products you can make at least about a dozen begleri fidgets so this DIY is extremely cost-effective!
Before we start with the instructions on how to make these begleri fidgets we just want to warn you about the small components are used in this activity. These may pose a choking danger to some youngsters. Please make sure that your build is used under adult supervision in these situations.
Let’s get started with our DIY project!
First, you need to take your half-inch PVC pipe and cut two small two-centimeter sections. You can even sand the cut PVC tube gently to give it a smoother finish.
Insert two or three hex nuts each into these two-centimeter PVC pipes. Make sure that the hex nuts are big enough to fit snugly into the PVC pipe so that they don’t fall out while using the begleri fidget.
Now take a thin rope and cut it so that it’s 15 centimeters long. You could use a thicker rope too instead of the thin rope. The idea is that a thin rope will spin faster and a thick rope would spin slower. Use whichever rope you are comfortable with.
Rope this thin rope through the PVC pipe so that the PVC pipes are on the two ends of the rope. Tie a knot on both sides of the thin rope so that the rope doesn’t fall out of the hex nuts and PVC pipe.
Now comes the fun part! It’s finally time to decorate your begleri fidget. You can let your imagination run wild for this step. You can use anything from paint and glitter to printed tape. Let your creative juices flow and decorate it however you want!
Your begleri fidgets are now ready! You can make dozens of these for the price of one in the market. Enjoy your new creation and share it with your friends and family!
