Pirate Sword Cardboard Craft

Here's a simple, pirate sword craft made from cardboard and aluminum foil. Great for a Halloween party costume or prop for your play. It's easy to make and so much more satisfying than a store bought sword.


  • cardboard
  • pencil
  • strong scissors or knife
  • paint (optional)
  • glitter
  • glue


  1. Draw your sword with handle on a large piece of cardboard and cut out. There are 2 example swords pictured. If there is a label, you might want to tear that off at least the handle part if you plan to paint.
  2. Paint the handle on both sides. Red, brown, or gold are good choices. Allow to dry.
  3. Apply a little bit of glue to the blade and wrap with a large piece of aluminum foil. Actually, you don't need glue, but it will make the foil more secure.
  4. Add a few dabs of glue onto the handle and sprinkle on glitter to simulate gold or jewels. Allow to dry.
  5. Don't forget to make a pirate hat to go along with your sword. Maybe an eye patch, too.
