Step 1: Making the Shield

Get a large piece of card board and cut it into a circular shape.  We used a large mixing bowl.

Step 2: Cover the Circular Cardboard With Duct Tape

After you have cut the cardboard into a circle, cover with Duct Tape, we used yellow to mimic bronze.  Then decorate with a contrasting color of Duct Tape with a design of your choice, we used a praying mantis motif.

Step 3: Creating the Helmet

Get two large pieces of paper, tape them together so they can wrap around your head.
Cut a circular top.

Step 4: Tape the Paper Together and Measure Your Melon

Put the two (or three) pieces of paper around your head to make sure you have the right size.

Step 5: Cover the Helment With Duct Tape

Now cut out the paper into a face mask of a Spartan helmet and cover with Duct Tape, again we used yellow to imitate bronze.  For the horse hair top we used black construction paper.  Now you are ready to sack Troy, or whatever the Spartans sacked.
