This Instructable is being entered into the 3rd Annual Make it Stick contest and the Halloween Props contest. Don't forget to vote... even if it's not for me. :(

My wife and I decided to dress up for the release of the Avengers movie earlier this year. Considering the fact that I had been growing my hair out and that I had a beard we thought it appropriate for me to go as Thor. I decided to start by making Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. After all, what's Thor without his powerful hammer?

could you tell me how to make this
The Rambler (author)  Zender cool4 months ago
That's kind of what the whole instructable is. Just read the steps and you should get a pretty good idea of how to make it. I don't know what else to say other than the instructions I've put in each step.

Thanks! Welcome to instructables!
That hammer looks really great! Thor's hammer might be my favorite superhero prop to make, there's so many different and cool ways to do it.

Haha thanks, you're too kind. I'm pretty happy with it but next to yours it's like "Wuh, wuuuh".
Odin's beard, this is great!

I really love how you did the handle! Wonderful detail! Did you keep track of how you put the rest of the outfit together? It looks great!
