Step 1: Make the frame
The frame is easily made by referencing the picture. First, cut and bend the main piece that goes around the user’s neck. It should fit perfectly around the user’s neck. Adding the extender arm for the LED bar: cut a 4-inch piece of plastic and connect it to the main piece. The LED bar is a small 1-inch piece of plastic with four holes for four LEDs.

Step 2: Glue the speaker and LEDs on the main piece
For this step, please reference the picture to determine where to place the remaining items. The author also added a cork pad to the main around the neck piece for added comfort.
