Introduction: LIFE SIZE MINECRAFT SWORD WALL PIECE.
It's halloween coming, so everyone is in a hurry of decorating their house.I think this project is the best and the easiest.So let's get started.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: GATHERING THE MATERIALS
- Pair of brushes
- A marker or pencil
- Cardboard sheet (from scrap)
- Glue gun
- Cutter (or anything else for cutting)
Step 2: PRINTING
Search the web for "minecraft sword" and print the image on an A4 size paper.This will really help while making the sword.
Step 3: STARTING WITH SWORD
So I had divided the sword in three parts:
- Middle part
- Bottom part
- Upper part
Step 4: MIDDLE PART
In the above image you can get an idea of how we are going to make the middle part.So for the middle part we are going to cut 3 square, 2 rectangle "A", 2 rectangle "B".The measurements in the above image are just for an idea the real measurements are as follows:
- 3 squares of length & breadth = 12 cm.
- 2 rectangles "A" of length = 15 cm, and breadth = 6 cm.
- 2 rectangles "B" of length = 12 cm, and breadth = 6 cm.
After cutting the shapes,join them as shown.
- Turn one rectangle in the diamond shape.
- Join 1 rectangle "B" to the right end of the square.
- Now join rectangle "B" to the right end of the square.(join them end-to-end).
- Do the same with the remaining rectangles and 1 square.
- You should get 2 same structures.
- Now join both the structures to the sides of the remaining square.
- It's done.HURRAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Step 5: BOTTOM PART
Bottom part is the easiest one.For the bottom part you will need to cut out two small squares and a big squares.The length of the squares are as follows:
- Small square length & breadth = 12 cm.
- Big square length & breadth = 15 cm.
Now for joining them, take the small squares and glue them underneath of one another then glue them to the big square. NOTE : drink some water after doing this :)
Step 6: UPPER PART
Upper part is also quiet easy.Fro the upper part you will need 8 squares of length & breadth = 15 cm.
Now join them as you joined the bottom part.For the perfection you should divide the square in 4 little squares and join one little square to the little square of the other square.Well a little confusing but you can get help from the images.
Step 7: JOINING ALL TOGETHER
Now join all the parts together well I don't know how to explain this topic but you can take the help of the printout we took out before.Join them with the glue gun and for the support I used some black electrician tape at the back.
Step 8: NEWSPAPER PASTE
Now get a bowl and mix water and glue in equal amounts.After you are done tear the newspaper into small pieces,after that put a piece of newspaper on the sword and cover it completely with the paste.This will give the sword some hardness and it will make the coloring easy.
Step 9: COLORING
This is the worst part.I used acrylic color as they are cheap and they works well.I used black,white,brown,blue and green acrylic color.For making the shades of brown and black I mixed black and white with the colors to make them lighter or darker,for making the sandy brown I mixed blue with orange.For coloring the upper part perfectly divide one square in 9 little squares as you can see in the images.
After the coloring is completed outline the whole square with black marker.
Step 10: HANGING IT ON THE WALL
I glued a jute thread at the back of the sword as its look's royal to me but you can use some other type of thread too.After that hammer 2 nails in the wall you need to hang the sword.I added a fox light at the bottom of the sword for special look.
