I’ll admit it, I’ve never seen a full Star Wars movie. I grew up in a family that loves it, my husband has a blanket from childhood that his mother made and we are saving for when out son is older. I laughed when a picture circulating facebook popped up that said something to the effect of being in the 1% of people who have never seen Star Wars. I was nervous to share it!I am however a little excited about this new episode and we have plans to enjoy it on Christmas day as a family. To get us ready to enjoy our first Star Wars episode as a family, JDub and I got to work crafting a DIY Star Wars Lightsaber for each of us.
All you need to make your DIY Star Wars Lightsaber are a few easy supplies and about 5 minutes! That’s right, a lightsaber in 5 minutes.
You will need a regular shaped pool noodle (you can find these year round at Target in the toy section)
Measure out the length you would like your lightsabers to be and make a small mark on the spot. Using scissors make a puncture on the marked spot and trim off the excess noodle.
Wrap your handle area with the black duct tape. I made mine 3 widths long. Using the silver decorative tape design your unique handle. All finished, now get out there and have an epic lightsaber battle with your kids and their friends.
