Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been busy on Star Wars party mode. Aiden and Ian's party is in exactly two weeks hence every single spare minute I have is spent cutting, gluing or assembling something that is related to the birthday. After this I will be up to my head in butter, flour and eggs so I am eager to get all the tedious DIY crafts out of the way.
Here's another Star Wars DIY inspiration from Pinterest - pool noodle light sabers! Unlike in the US, where pool noodles are sold at the Dollar Tree for yes, you guessed it... one dollar; pool noodles don't come cheap in Malaysia. I went scouting around Mr DIY, Daiso and Tesco, but found none for sale. I even went as far as contacting Prosun Swimwear for bulk orders. But still the cheapest was at ToysR'Us - RM21.90 for a length of 150cm.
So when I found these foam hangers going dirt cheap at GM Klang, I was ecstatic!
|So cheap, I nearly cried.|
Using grey duct tape and black electrical tape, I taped the end to make it look like the handle of a light saber. And tadaaaaa.... three hours later 50 foam light sabers were done!
