Video: It took Antonio Stradivari months to create one of his instrumental masterpieces, but you can make yourself a tiny wooden violin in just a few hours using Popsicle sticks, toothpicks, coffee stirrers and string. It can’t be used to play Mozart, but you can still pretend to play it whenever your friends start complaining about their inconsequential life problems.
