Light Saber Craft Tutorial: May the Fourth Be with You
Everyone’s favorite celebration is almost here — May the 4th Be with You, Star Wars Day! In honor of our favorite classic sci-fi series, we were inspired to do a Star Wars-themed craft tutorial. The best part of this craft is that is easy, fast, cheap and most of all fun! After you are finished, challenge your closest friends to an all-out light saber duel.
Materials: (You can probably find most of the materials around your house. If not, you can pick them all up at your local 99cent store. That’s what we did!)
Pool noodle, color of your choice
Permanent Markers (We used black and Red.)
Decide on the length for your light saber. Cut your pool noodle into to that desired size. We cut our noodle in half and it was the perfect length.
Starting at one end of the noodle, use the tape to make a “plus sign” at the base of your noodle to cover the end. This will be the handle of your light saber.
At the base of the noodle, which you just covered, wrap the duct tape around the noodle to complete the handle. Stop when it is at your desired handle length.
Use your sharpie to create the design of your choice on the light saber. Every light saber can be a unique creation and as complicated or as simple as you please.
You are finished and have created your very own light saber!
The last step is to find challengers for a battle of the light sabers.
If your friends can’t rise to the challenge, then we can help you out with that. Check our event calendar to see what we have in store for you. May the Force be with you!
