Star Wars Party- Party Favors

When UNO finally decided on a birthday party theme, 
I started searching for THE perfect take home favors.

Hello! Light Sabers!!!

I searched for ideas that ran from pool noodles, to dowels, to PVC pipe.
I chose PVC pipe.
I saw a post about making them here.
I made my adjustments to share with you.

My light sabers are 2' long...  the perfect length for 5 year olds and under.

The above link has her's 3', which I think is great for older kids and adults.

I went to Home Depot to buy the supplies.
They even cut it for me.
(Thanks Adam!)

Note: It is cheaper to buy the super long pipes than to buy pre-cut ones.

For 1 Star Wars Light Saber
2'- smallest PVC pipe
2'-  Pipe insulation that fits over the PVC pipe
6"-  PVC pipe for insulated pipe to fit snugly inside
Grey Duct Tape
Colored "Duck" Tape

Slide the Insulation over the thinner PVC pipe

Slide the Insulated pipe into the 6" pipe

This is what your light saber looks like before taping

wrap the handle with the grey duct tape

A light saber, this is going to be.
(NOTE: Yoda would have said this to me if here were reading this post!)

Next, wrap your colored duck tape overlapping the grey at the base of the handle

YES! The force is with me!! A Light Saber!!
Honestly, it took me about 15 minutes to make one!!
