*Note: We don't recommend making them longer than 30" in total length, as they will bend or wobble during "battle".
2. Measure out your "handle". We used approximately 3" of length. Begin wrapping your electrical or duct tape (depending on the color handle you want!). As most pool noodles have a cored center, we decided to wrap the end as well, by covering the bottom with individual pieces first, and then wrapping the handle last.
3. Now comes the fun part! Use your metallic markers, or paint pens to design buttons, and markings throughout the handle and saber itself. Be creative! There is no wrong way to customize your own handle!
4. Once the ink is dry, choose your opponent and add your own sound effects! Will the force prevail?!
