Make Sauron's Mace from Lord of the Rings
First, start by cutting off a length of broomstick that is roughly 24in. If you are using a broom handle that is glossed take some time to sand this off. The gloss will make it difficult to paint.
Measure the circumference of the broomstick by wrapping a piece of paper around it and marking where both sides meet.
Using your cereal box cut a long strip that is as wide as the circumference of the broom.
Score this evenly into 4 strips and fold this piece.
Wrap the piece of cereal box you just cut out around the middle of the handle and glue it.
Next, add some tape to seal up any loose or open ends.
Now it's time to add the guard. Print out the template and cut out the hexagonal shape. Trace this three times onto cardboard and cut them out.
These need to side onto the handle to use it to mark circles in the center of each hexagon and cut this out
Slide them right onto the handle and now you have the guard. Sand and trim this down if need be.
