The picture below shows the tools and materials needed to do this project.
Materials & Tools:
Print up and cut out the six pieces of the template. These pieces make up the Spear Point and the Spear Butt.
Put the six pieces of the template on your cardboard and trace the patterns. Then cut out the six cardboard pieces.
Glue together the Spear Point and the Spear Butt.
Cut notches in the broomstick or the dowel. Do this in both ends. And make the notches approximately one inch deep.
Glue the Spear Point and the Spear butt to the handle. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly before proceeding.
Wrap electrical tape around both ends of the spear to make the point and butt stronger.
Wrap tape around the center of the spear. This is the handle. You can use black electrical tape or duct tape.
Here is a picture of the completed spear. Remember that this is just an ornament and even though the tip is cardboard it can still be very dangerous. You should never point it at anyone or throw it at anyone.
