How to Make a Captain America Shield Out of Cardboard and Duct Tape!

About: I'm just a guy who likes making stuff :)

Hi there! I'm going to show you how to make a cardboard and duct tape Captain America shield. I forgot to take picture of the beginning part. But you could use briciius super-heroine shield tutorial to get the dome shape on the shield. So let's get started.

Step 1: Materials.

1. A large piece of cardboard.

2. Red, blue and gray or white duct tape.

3. Hot glue and hot glue sticks.

4. Scissors or utility knife.

Step 2: The Body.

Take your shield and cover it in one layer of gray and then two layers of red, I covered mine in three layers of red, but you can do whatever looks best

Step 3: Details.

Okay for the rings and the star on the shield I used seamster's Captain America shield template which can be found here. Once you cut the star out of the cardboard put it on the shield. For me this is the hardest part of making the shield

Step 4: Straps and You're Done!

You can make strap out of two old belts or some duct tape. I ended up using duct tape, but again do what is best for you. Well that's it! You now have your own shield to beat up bad guys with! Thanks for using my instructable and remember to vote for me
