What you typically need to make a foam board sword:

Foamboar is an excellent material for making a sword. It is strong and it is easy to work with.

1. Design your sword first!

Do some drawingsThis is a fun part of the process. Grab a pencil and some paper and start drawing out your idea. If you don't have an idea yet that is ok. Idea's will come to you as you draw. Let me give you a little bit of inspiration. Thing of a sword as three different parts. The point, the blade and the handle.

So you can have a little bit of fun with this. Draw out tips, blades and handles. And you can mix and match them.




Here are drawings of ten sword types. This will help you in designing your sword.
