Yes I like ‘Agents of Shield’. So I decided to make DIY swords and shields for my son. Not only is it christmas time but also I felt like my son is an angel (well sometimes he can be devilish :), I called these: Angels of Shield.
For the swords and shields you will need:
(a lot of them, since my husband starts to paint he orders canvases and this was why we had a lot of cardboard which I couldn’t throw away. This is one of my crafts. You can find the other cardboard crafts here:
- any acrylic colors
- same colored scotch tapes
- same colored felts
- craft knife
- hot glue or craft glue
- aluminium foil tape
- golden or silver acrylic color
- stapler or a needle and a string
Cut out long rectangular shapes from the felts and sew or staple them to the shield cardboard, which ever is easier for you. I cut my felts 30 cm long (for the big one) and 15 cm (for the little one).
Paint the outer circle with the color you like and after the colors dry glue the wings in the middle of the shield. But be careful to glue the wings in the right direction or when the wings will be upside down on the shield 😉
I taped the front with aluminium foil tape and the bottom with different colored tape. But I recommend you to leave a space on the sword for the angel wings, because the glue does not stick well to the tape.
Then glue the wings to the empty place.
try to center both wings.
We are waiting for Noah, Bulut and Cinar 😉P.S: you may want to keep the backing of the aluminium tape in order to make a nice Santa wreath, which you can find here: Santa Door Wreath
