Are you a huge fan of the Star Wars series? Then I can promise you that this DIY project will excite you! Today we will be talking about how to make lightsabers. But not just any lightsabers, we’re going to be marking ginormous Star Wars lightsabers! If you’re interested, read more to find out how it is made.

 

Products needed for this DIY project:

1.      Large cardboard cylinder

2.      Clear corrugated roofing panel

3.      Screws

4.      Drill

5.      Paint

6.      Wood

7.      LED spotlight

 

Let’s get started with our DIY project!

 

Step 1:

Let’s start off with the handles of our ginormous lightsabers. To make these handles all you need to do is take a large tube made of cardboard and spray it with some silver or black spray paint to cover all the writing. Once the paint has dried you can decorate it however you want! Let your imagination run wild for this part. You could use duct tape or other stickers.  To add some more details, you could also paint a large red circle on the handles that would look as if they’re the on/off button.

Step 2:

Let’s move on to the main part of the lightsabers. For this first, you need to take a large sheet of clear corrugated roofing panel and make a cylinder out of it. To do this simply put some screws to hold the two ends of the roofing panel together.

Step 3:

Next, you need to cut some 2 x 4 wood into two pieces that are twelve inches long. Then cut these two pieces into half to finally get four pieces of one and a half inches of wood.

Step 4:

Screw these four pieces of wood along the base of the roofing panel with the help of a drill. Make sure that all the pieces of wood are equidistant from each other. This step is necessary for the roofing panel to fit into the hollow of the cardboard cylinder handle.

Step 5:

Now take another piece of 2 x 4 wood and screw on a LED spotlight of a color of your choice on it. Then screw the piece of wood on the bottom of the cylinder made with the roofing panel.

Step 6:

Insert the cylindrical roofing panel into the cardboard handle and screw it into place by inserting screws through the cardboard cylinder into the four pieces of 2 x 4 attached to the roofing panel.

Your ginormous Star Wars lightsabers are now ready! Connect the LED lights to have some fun. Make two of these ginormous Star Wars lightsabers to have a friendly battle with your friends and family. Enjoy your latest creation!
