How to Make a Daedric Dagger


This is a tutorial on how to make the Daedric Dagger from the video game Skyrim. Its a neat little project and you don't need a whole lot of supplies, just 1 sheet of foam board, some glue and some paint.

I give you the template that you can print up and cut out right here : The Daedric Dagger TEMPLATE

If you want to make something more spectacular after the dagger you might want to do the Daedric Sword. Thats a very popular project. Located here: Make the Daedric Sword

Materials List:

  • 1 sheet of foamboard or a big piece of cardboard (Big enough for a dagger)
  • Some kind of glue. Gluegun, white glue, spray glue are all ok
  • Red, black, and Silver paint
  • A knife to cut the foamboard, xacto knifes are best
  • My template so you can get the shape of the dagger (download here)

Print up the packet of templates, cut out the pieces and tape them together to form three pieces. One full dagger piece and two handle pieces. Trace these three onto your foam board.

Trace onto foamboard



Cut out the three pieces

Use your knife and cut out the three pieces.








Glue the three layers together

Glue the three pieces together, the complete dagger piece goes right between the two handle pieces.








Paint the details

Now paint the dagger. Paint the whole thing black first. You can use spray paint or brush on paints. For the details use silver and red.







This next picture will help you with the painting scheme.

The painting scheme


Let's take a look at the fancier foam handled dagger. You can that it is quite a lot nicer looking. You can easily do this with a piece of foam that is 1 inch thick. I used a product called foamular that can be bought in sheets at any home improvement store. Any one.

The foam handle


This next picture shows you how to make the foam dagger. You cut the piece of foam just like the small piece of the dagger. its the handle and the back of the blade. The actual blade of the dagger is a piece of foam board. Use the templates to make these two pieces. The foamboard blade is hot glued right up against the foam piece.

Foam shape

To get the nice rounded shape of the handle you use sandpaper or emory paper. It will work very nicely.

Sand the foam to shape

Paint it up by first painting it all black then add the silver and red details.

Paint it black
