Handmade swords

Zainab here!
Sumayyah and I made a couple of handmade swords.

We used:

Thick cardboard
Gold paint
Black marker

First of all draw your sword shape on cardboard.
Draw two identical handles as well.

Then cut it out.

Paint the handle of your sword with
gold paint. When it dries go around the
edge with the black marker.

Wrap and glue the sword with foil.

Glue the handles to the front and back of the sword.

If you want you can cut out small shapes
of jewels and paint them, then stick them on
to the handle.

If you have silver paint, you don't need the foil.

Have fun playing with your swords!
