In this instructable i will be showing you how to make a ninja star or shruiken out of some basic materials without using any power tools.This ninja star is dangerous if used irresponsibly; please do not blame me for any damage caused:)
Step 1: Things Needed
For this instructable you will need some nails(ranging from 2.5" to 4.5"), hot glue or a glue gun, and synthetic wool, string or thin paracord.
Step 2: The Base
Take two nails the same length and put them as shown on a hard surface.
Step 3: The First Glue
Take one of the nails and put a small drop of hot glue on the head.
Step 4: Yet Another Step
Fix the two nails together at the heads.
Step 5: THE THIRD NAIL!
Take a third nail of the same length, put a bit of glue on the head and stick it at right angles to the other two.
Then put another one on top to make a cross. I do not have a picture of this.
Step 7: Now It Starts to Get Interesting
When the glue has hardened, fixing the first four nails in place, take a slightly longer nail and glue it in the gap between, as shown.
Step 8: Second Part Complete
Do the same thing on the other three sides, using a bit more glue than necessary for extra strength.
Step 9: Extra Glue
To make it more secure, add a thick layer of glue to cover all the heads of the nails, as shown.
Step 10: Removing It
Once the whole thing has dried, take a long nail, insert it under the base of the star and gently remove it from the surface.
Step 11: The Next Step
Turn it upside-down and add extra glue like before.
Step 12: Strengthening
Take the wool or whatever you are using and stick it to the middle of the star as shown.
Step 13: Last Step!!!!
After you have wrapped about 5 meters of wool evenly round the middle of the star, glue the end of the wool down and you are finished!
This is it with all my other shruikens, I hope you liked this tutorial:)
