If you are Interested in the video version of this Instructable and the embedded video does not appear on your mobile device, here is an alternative link

Step 1:

I cut off a piece of PVC pipe.

Then I heated it up with a blowtorch.

Make sure to wear a respirator when heating PVC

When it was heated, I flattened it with a wooden board.

Step 2:

Then I drilled holes for marbles and a hole for a bearing.

Holes for the marbles should be smaller than the marble's diameter.

I also trimmed the pipe to desired shape and drilled decorative holes.

Step 3:

I reheated ends of the pipe, so they would open.

I inserted the marbles and half-closed the ends.

Make sure that the marbles turn freely (unless you don't want them to)

Step 4:

Then I put in the bearing

Step 5:

That's it!

Your Fidget spinner is ready!
