Make a Pool Noodle Axe

Using a pool noodle is a great way to get your own NERF stuff without paying the expensive prices.

In this tutorial I show you how to turn a noodle and some cardboard into a safe and durable axe!

The template for this project is here.




Overview of this project:

It is a simple and easy to make project that is durable and safe. You just need a few basic supplies including a pool noodle.

Pool noodles come in two sizes . You can use either size and I use the thicker noodle in this tutorial.





Tools and Materials:

  • 1 pool noodle
  • a large cardboard box to make a big axe
  • knife to cut cardboard with
  • White glue or hot glue gun
  • My template is right here if you want to make the same axe as me

Print up the template. Cut out the five pieces and tape them together to make the axe template.





Place the template on your cardboard and trace it. Trace five of them.






Cut them out.









Next glue those five layers together. You have options as to how to do it. You can use spray on adhesive which is the fastest and easiest. You can also use hot glue gun which is convenient and easy but a bit tricky because the pieces are so large.

With a hot glue gun you have to work fast so the first part of the glue doesn't harden before you finish applying it to the whole axe.


I recommend you use plain old white glue. Mix it with a little bit of water to make it easy to spread.








Put some weights on it and let the glue dry.






Let's continue and put the noodle on!
