Three easy steps to making a quick and easy lightsaber!
Star Wars Day or May 4th is tomorrow! My husband loves Star Wars and last year for his birthday, my daughter made him his own lightsaber. A quick and easy craft you can make in a few minutes.
What you need:
- Wrapping paper tube
- Green – Glow in the Dark Paint
- Green Acrylic Paint
- Black Acrylic Paint
- Red Acrylic Paint
- Silver Acrylic Paint
- White Glitter (optional)
Step by step process
Step 1 – Prep your lightsaber
Take your wrapping paper tube and measure about 12 inches from the bottom up and paint it black.
Step 2 – Paint your lightsaber
Mix the Green acrylic paint and and Green Glow in the dark paint. This way you don’t have to paint several coats of each. Paint the rest of the paper tube (about 2 coats) and let dry.
Optional: add white glitter before it dries
Step 3 – Add the finishing touches
Paint some pretend on/off buttons to complete your masterpiece.
Tada! MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU. Get Inspired!
