My son wanted to be a Viking for Halloween. So, with a few sheets of cardboard, a bowl and some duct tape I built him a Viking shield even Gobber would be proud of. Remember,

“Your most important piece of equipment is your shield. If you must make a choice between a sword or a shield, take the shield!" 
- Gobber

Step 1: Materials

Materials for the shield,

-   Two large pieces of cardboard
-   Small metal bowl
-    Three rolls of duct tape
       - one roll of red
       - one roll of silver
       - one roll of brown
-  One roll of mat-tact (sticky vinyl wood sheets your grandma placed in her cupboards)
-   An exacto knife
-   Black marker
