Batman Gauntlets




These Batman Gauntlets are great for completing your batman Halloween costume and even to just walk around with pure swag!

Step 1: The Materials You Will Need

Soccer Shin Guards

Spray Paint

Bread Knife 


Black Soccer Socks 

Cardboard Box

Hot Glue Gun

Black Heavy Duty Gloves


Piece of Paper

Step 2: Cutting the Sock

Take your soccer socks and your scissors and cut off the piece where your foot goes. Now that that's off, take the other piece and cut that in half horizontally. They should go on your arms and go up to about your elbows. If your arms are to long use two socks and cut one arm out per sock.

Step 3: Spray Painting the Shin Guards

Next, take the black spray paint and the the shin guards and spray paint them.

Step 4: Drawing the Blades

Then, take the pen and the paper and draw on three blades that look like the picture above.

Step 5: Cutting and Tracing

Now, take your scissors again and cut out the drawings. Then take the pen again, place the shapes on the cardboard and trace them on.

Step 6: Cutting the Cardboard

Now, take the bread knife and cut out the shapes from the cardboard.

Step 7: Repeat the Steps

Take the paper shapes, put them on the cardboard, trace them again, and cut them out so that you now have six cardboard shapes.

Step 8: Spray Painting the Shapes

Now, take the spray paint again and spray paint the shapes.

Step 9: Hot Gluing to Shin Guards

Now, take the shin guards, the hot glue, and the black cardboard pieces, and hot glue the cardboard pieces to the shin guards.

Step 10: Six More Cardboard Shapes

After that, take the paper shapes again and place them on the cardboard. Trace on six of them.

Step 11: Cutting Out the Cardboard Shapes

Now, take the bread knife again and cut them out. Take the spray paint and paint them....again.

Step 12: Gluing on the Shapes

Then, take the hot glue gun and glue the shapes on to the second shin guard. You now have two of them.

You are now done with the Batman Gauntlets

    This is cool. I've made batman gauntlets before, but only out of cardboard.
    P.S. you can tell the first two people that posted comments have a batman profile picture.

    I didn't expect much, with cardboard glued to shin guards. But i'm not going to lie, this looks real good. I might even make this.
