Make a Great Toy Lightsaber With Discarded Items

About: Who wants to know??????

All you need is:

an old 5 watt flashlight

colored cellophane

a glass tube from a florescent bulb

a small circular mirror

transparent tape

a case for a large toy lightsaber

a glass cutter


Step 1:

First you unscrew all of the screws and take out the lightsaber part leaving just the hilt.

Step 2:

Cut out a square of whatever color you want big enough to cover the top of the flashlight and use the tape to stick it on.

Step 3:

Put the flashlight in the hollow lightsaber hilt and tape it in place. Make sure you take out the red button on the lightsaber and the flashlight's switch is lined up with the hole that is left when you tape it in place.

Step 4:

Unscrew the ends of the florescent bulb and only save the tube and use enough tape to hold it in place.

Step 5:

take out the mirror part and use the glass cutter to cut it into the right size to fit into the tube. Tape it to the end of the bulb.

Step 6:

click the button through the hole and the colored light from the flashlight will shine up the tube and be reflected back down.

Thank You

    Hey, this looks like a good idea!

    To be allowed into the Fandom Contest though, you'll need to use your own original photos. Have you actually made this? If so, can you edit and put in your own photos? If you are able to make some changes, let me know!

    I'll then be able to let this into the contest. Cheers!
