How to make a Pirate Cutlass

It has been fully established now that the children in this house are Pirate obsessed!

Everyday we have to dress up as pirates, and everyday I am trying to patch together bits of two outfits between three. The two swords were becoming an everyday argument  occurrence and I was beginning to see first hand the damage plastic can do when ‘pretend swiped’ at unarmed brother or sister without a sword.

I decided to put a stop to this by confiscating said weaponry on the agreement we would make cardboard (less damage) jewelled pirate cutlasses (exactly like Captain Hook!) and that they would all have on each.

You will need:

A cereal box (1 for each sword you intend to make)

Silver foil

Jewels (basically stick on things)

Coloured card or coloured foam

Scissors

Tape

Glue

1. Open out your cereal box. On it draw your cutlass shape. It is basically and angled banana shape with a D on the end for the handle!

2. Cut it out

3. As the sword will overlap on the fold of the box it will feel floppy. Strengthen these folds with some strips of card from the leftover box and fasten with cello-tape

4. Cover the sword in Silver foil. It wraps quite neatly and just need a little bit of tape to hold in place.

5. Draw around your hand twice on to coloured card or foam of your choice. Cut out and stick on.

6. Decorate with you treasure. I had in mind to decorate the handle, but the children wanted to decorate the blade. BB was being very helpful with his brother and sister.
