Step 1: Materials Needed

For The Hammer

- 2 Boxes roughly the same size, or 1 big one

- A 1ft long cardboard tube. A foil tube works best

- Aluminum Foil

- Brown paper

Other Materials

- Scissors

- Masking Tape

- Scotch Tape

Step 2: The Hammer Head

Align the 2 boxes by the wide sides, and tape them using the masking tape all the way around.

If one of the boxes is slightly taller, (like in my case) make a small slit on all sides, and bend them down and tape them together. It's okay if there's a gap, it'll be covered anyway (2nd pic)

Take the foil and wrap it around the boxes. Any extra foil can just be folded down to cover the other areas. Cut extra foil to cover any uncovered areas. It's okay if there are any folds or creases, it adds texture. (3rd pic)

Step 3: The Handle

Cut a bit of the foil on the bottom, then tape the tube to the box using masking tape. Tape or replace the foil that was cut back around the tube.

Cover the tube and create the strap using the brown paper. I didn't cover mine, since the tube was brown enough.

Step 4: Finished!

Now that the hammer is finished, all you need to do now, is get the costume, the ability to summon lightning, some facial hair, a long blonde wig and you're ready to become the god of thunder!
