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.
Note: It is cheaper to buy the super long pipes than to buy pre-cut ones.
(NOTE: Yoda would have said this to me if here were reading this post!)
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.|
|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!!
