First you need some stuff to build them^^

 

Stuff you need ( for both Chakrams):

·          4 X Sticks out of wood (Length: ca. 12 inch ; bore: Not important you should be able to grab it.^^)

·            8X Circles of styrofoam (caliber:  ca. 8 inch)

·            Printer paper (it should be pretty thick cause we will made the blades out of them. And they will be hollow inside.)

·            A lot of old newspapers

·           Glue

·           Wire ( for the external circle)

·          Tape

·          Paint ( you need just two colours   Red and silver. Use that kind of colour you prefer. I used a combination of Spray and normal wallpaint. )

·          1 X Deco - marker  from Edding ( not necessary but it was helpful to correct the paint. You never be able to paint it completely perfect.  ;)   )

·           Some stain to make the whole thing water-resistant

·          Three rolls of  Tennis grip band

 

Tools you need: (well the tools I used ^^)

·        Saw

·         Brush

·         Cutter

·        Ruler

·         Chisel

·        Hammer

·         Rasp

·        Pincer

·        (And some workspace)


Ok. Now let´s start’: (with one Chakram)
1.
At first you have to mark the middle of your sticks. Then you should cut a slot like in this picture.  The slots are as long as the sticks thick. Try to do straight slots. When you put two sticks together it should be a cross.

2.
Stabilize the cross with tape. Don´t worry, later you will not see the tape. So you can use a lot. But you should be able to grab it later too ;3
Then add the Styrofoam circles also fix them with tape. For a better hold you can also make some slots in the rings. But careful they are fragile.

Awesome!! Love kingdom hearts! 1000000000000/5

You might want to separate this step into two steps, like this:



Step 1 Materials Needed

Step 2 Let's Begin!

Ok. Now let´s start: (with one Chakram)...

... But be careful, because they are fragile.



Most readers skim through the materials needed section and go on to see the build process, so by doing this, it's less likely for your reader to miss the important first steps of making the chakram!



Hope this helps. :)
