Pirate Sword Craft

Finished Sword

My son loves pirates, so what is he going to be for Halloween? A pirate. Pirates need swords don’t they? I didn’t want to spend the time or money looking for a store-bought sword and thought he’d love a homemade one just as much.

What you Need:
Heavy Duty scissors or knife
Paint (optional)


1. Draw out your sword shape on cardboard.


2. Cut out sword.

3. I decided to rip off the side of the cardboard that had pictures/packaging stuff on it. But if you are painting you might not need to do that.


4. Paint. I just sponged some on with a paper towel.

5. Cover with Foil.

6. Glue and Glitter your own design or add sequins or fake jewels.

  1. Very cute. I totally want to make one of these. I’ll probably have to paint the whole thing though. Last time I tried to make a crown with aluminum foil my kids ripped it off and tried to eat it đŸ˜¦

  2. I bet he’ll be the cutest pirate ever!

  3. Cute project!

  4. […] The busiest day of the year was March 25th with 493 views. The most popular post that day was Pirate Sword Craft. […]
