How to make a hologram with your smartphone is an easy DIY craft tutorial idea. Use this hologram projector tutorial and YouTube videos for amazing results.
I recently saw the coolest thing and I have been so excited to share it with you. You can make a hologram project using simple sheets of plastic and your smartphone! Seriously, and it really is so simple to do.
I created a free printable PDF with the instructions and pattern to make it even easier! You can download and print the free pdf here.
Supplies Used: Some links may be too similar items when exact items couldn’t be found online.
I do have a video if you would prefer to watch the tutorial. If you like my video subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you don’t miss out on any future video tutorials!
How to Make a Hologram with Your SmartPhone
The printable pdf pattern shows two different sizes. For small screens like smartphones, use the shape on the left. For larger screens like tablets, use the shape on the right. Take a fine point Sharpie marker and trace the shape onto the plastic sheet. The hologram projector is four-sided so trace the shape four times.
With a pair of scissors cut out the four shapes.
Use transparent tape to assemble the cone, but cut the strip in lengthwise first. This will make the strip thinner so you won’t see as much of the tape on each corner of the cone. Align the shapes by the sides keeping the short and long sides together.
When adhering the last two sides/corners together you will see the plastic take a cone shape. That’s all there is to it! Easy Peasy!
Now it’s time to use it! YouTube has a bazillion videos that can be used with your new hologram projector. Simple type hologram into the search and they will all be listed for you. The video I used while creating this tutorial is Hologram Project by Kiste.
Place the hologram projector you made on the screen in the center of the video with the small part of the cone down.
Get eye-level with the phone and see your hologram projector come to life!
