Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Find a circular piece of wood (got mine from IKEA for about 9-10 dollar’$.
Step 2: Sand the base to level down (make it smooth)- bottom of bowl should be smooth
Step 3: Find out where you want to have the leather straps (Based on the length of your arm)
Step 4: Once you found the place, you want to leave enough room for your arm
Step 5: Then you’ll want to screw in a screw to the top and bottom of each of the leather straps (if the screws are sticking out through the wood after wards then grind it down. (with grinder)
Step 6: Then if you want, you can sand it more so that its smooth.
Step 7: If you get it from IKEA there may be a hole in it, If so you can fill it with whatever you please, but for example I filled the hole with hot glue, but it is up to you to decide.
Step 8 (Final Step): Then this is the fun part, you can paint/design it however you want. (Paint with Acrylic or spray paint)
-For example on the front of my shield I painted the BO3 (Black Ops 3) logo. - Or you can go with the original plan and paint the Captain America shield.
These are just some of the idea’s I came up with/recommend.
This is a very cheap way to make your own shield, Have Fun.
