1. DIY Pendulum - Newton's Cradle
All you need to make this Newton's Cradle pendulum include thread, cardboard, toothpicks, small bead balls, and glue. The cardboard will be the base of the pendulum and it measures 20cm by 10cm. 3 cardboards of this dimension were attached with glue and the toothpicks were used to frame a square on it. Once you have the structure as shown in this video, Tue the balls with the thread and attach them to the frame with glue.
2. How To Make A Simple Pendulum
Check out this simple pendulum made from colored popsicle sticks, thread, and a hot glue gun. All you need to do is to assemble the popsicle sticks into a frame as shown in this guide. Then, attach the thread to the top and suspend a pendulum Bob with it.
3. DIY Pendulum For Fortune Telling
A pendulum is a balanced weighted object suspended by a single cord or chain. There are many things you can suspend and call a pendulum. In this video tutorial, you'll learn how to use gems, and stones to create a magical Pendulum.
4. How To Make A Quartz Pendulum
The stone used for this pendulum is quartz, though other types of stones can be used as well. This is a matter of what is available for use. Get a jewelry wire and wrap two strands together to hold the quartz.
5. How To Make A Pendulum
The simplest Pendulum you can make and carry around with you are keys. They come in handy. However, there are other types of pendulums you can make aside from keys. You can check this guide for many of them. They are such a divination tool that gives you quick answers.
6. How To Build A Pendulum
A pendulum moves in a consistent and measurable swing. The number of swings is called oscillation. One thing that makes Pendulum stand out is that it is very simple to make and requires fewer supplies and time. Among the necessary supplies needed for a pendulum is a thread, something to suspend on, and a pendulum bob. The bob can be anything ranging from stones. wikihow
7. Swinging Salt Pendulum
Here is how to make a simple swinging salt Pendulum. Get some food coloring and drop different colors on different bags of salt. Then, make a small hole on the bottom of the small container you want to use to suspend and pour each colored salt into it. Attach a role to the container and you're good to go. kiwico
8. DIY Wave Pendulum
The first thing you need to do for this wave Pendulum is to prepare and cut the base. After cutting, paint the base with black acrylic paint. Note! You can choose to stain or use different colors of paint on the base. instructables
9. Pendulum For Beginners
If you're a beginner, here is a video tutorial that will teach you all you need to know about making the Pendulum and its uses. The uses can differ depending on your preference; you can use a pendulum for divination, for map dowsing, or for fun. Check out the link below for more details.
10. How To Make A Pendulum
All you need to make this Pendulum are two pencils, a ping pong ball, a coke bottle, thread, and glue. Glue the pencil together at 90°angle. Attach one end of the pencil to the cap of the coke bottle such that the 90°avgle is facing down. Then, suspend the ping pong ball to it with thread.
11. How To Make A Simple Pendulum
This is the simplest way to DIY a simple pendulum. Get a ball and a long thread. The thread should be approximately 1 m in length. Wrap the thread evenly around the ball and suspend it anyways; you can suspend it with your hand or by attaching the pendulum to something.
12. How To Make A Pendulum Wave
A Pendulum wave is a series of Pendulums on the same structure. It was made in such a way that it will be easy for kids to build for their physics experiments. The waves are aligned such that if you set them swinging, they form all kinds of amazing patterns; spiral, double helix, and so on.
13. DIY Magnetic Pendulum
DIY pendulums are projects you can lay your hands on and be done with them as quickly as possible. They are fun projects! You only need four parts for this pendulum; Arduino, coil, resistor, and magnets. instructables
14. Electromagnetic Pendulum
The most important supply required for this electromagnetic Pendulum is a coil circuit. The wiring of the coil is 35 AWG magnet wire. You can follow this guide below to read more about this electromagnetic Pendulum. instructables
15. The Pendulum Wave
The materials needed for this Pendulum wave include wood pieces, super glue, nails, hex nut, transparent tape, drill, and hammer. Once you get all these materials you're way done. instructables
16. Chaos Pendulum DIY
Have you heard about chaos theory before! That is the technique this Pendulum is built on. The base of this Pendulum is built in such a way that it doesn't disturb the chaotic process of the pendulum. instructables
17. Making A Simple Pendulum
Here is how to make a simple pendulum at home. You will need some pebbles, thin aluminum foil, long thread, and a pen. Keep the pebbles on the foil and wrap them into a ball. Then, squeeze the foil tightly. Hold the foil ball(bob) with the thread and attach the same thread to the pen. After this, stick the pen on top of a jar and pull the bob to start swinging.
18. How To Make Pendulum Clock
This clock Pendulum is so amazing! It is made from cardboard, bob, and glue. This Pendulum can be divided into three parts; the round base, the long pole that holds the suspension curve, and the suspension curve that holds the suspended Bob. All these three parts are joined together using a hot glue gun.
19. How To Make Pendulum Wave
The structure of this pendulum is amazing. It is made from sticks and the two sides were in the form of triangles, the bottom is a square and a stick was connecting the top of both triangles to give a suspension line. Attach the bob to the suspension line. Note, bob can be anything.
20. DIY Pendulum And Divination Board
You have two alternative materials to build the base of this pendulum; you can either use cardboard or plywood. Other materials needed include jewelry strings, lightweight, chain, and any crystal or stone. The first thing you need to do is to wrap the crystal with wire or string. Ensure to talk in all extra wires to avoid picking yourself.
21. Pendulum Tether
You need a rubber band, different sizes of wood, metal balls, and a metal ring to bring the Pendulum tether idea to life. Drill holes on a wooden board and fit two dowels into the holes. Then, attach a metal ball to one of the dowels using a rubber band. Once you're done with this, you're halfway done. instructables
22. DIY Newton’s Pendulum
This is a simple pendulum system that requires simple techniques and basic materials to put together. The materials you need include thread, bobs, wooden boards, and steel. Curve the steel at an angle of 90° and attach it to the wooden board. After this, suspend the bobs with thread on the steel and you're good to go. instructables

A DIY Pendulum clock box. The first thing you need to do is to mimic the box frame and assemble it. Then, you can connect the pendulum bob and the clock wall itself. instructables
24. Newton's Cradle From Cardboard
Here is another method you can use to build a Newton's Cradle pendulum from cardboard. Instead of making a flat base with cardboard, make a square base and attach sticks to give the base. Then, suspend the bob with thread on the stick and you're good to go.
25. DIY Simple Pendulum
You will need Bob, stick, thread, and stopwatch to make this simple pendulum. Get the foam structure and set it up as seen in this video. Then, pull the stick into one side of the foam and repeat that for the other side to have the stick across the bob. Now, get a Bob and attach thread to it. Suspend the job on the foam structure with the thread and you're good to go. You can decide to change the length of suspension to know the minimum period.
A simple pendulum is a science experiment that is a physics toy. When you study the pendulum very well, you'll be amazed by the designated pattern of movement. In this guide, you have twenty-five DIY Pendulums that will show you all you need to know about Pendulums.
The period of the pendulum depends on its length. This means the longer the pendulum the longer the period of its swing.
