Ahoy Matey! Make your own Pirate Sword!
Exhibit gallery, Tampa Bay History Center
In the Treasure Seekers exhibit, you can learn all about the pirates!
Here are directions to make your own pirate sword at home!
Draw your sword on a large piece of cardboard and cut it out.
Paint the handle on both sides. Red, brown, or gold are good choices. Allow to dry.
Wrap some aluminum foil to the blade and wrap. You can add some glue if you would like to make it more secure. Allow to dry.
Don’t forget to make a pirate hat to go along with your sword! Maybe an eye patch, too?.
