Hi we're Riley and Brooke and for our middle school technical theater prop project we made an axe. It's perfect for a play or as part of a Halloween costume.

Step 1: Materials

Step 6: Step 5

Mix red paint with glue and paint the outer edge of the axe head. The glue helps the paint to stick to the foil. You may need to do two coats in order to have a solid color.

Step 7: Step 6

Use hot glue to affix the axe head to the club shaft. You may need to glue multiple times to make sure it doesn't fall off.

Step 8: Congratulations!

You have made your very own axe.
