DIY Lightsabers #StarWars

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy HERE 

A very simple way to make a fun lightsaber for a party or event is to use glow sticks. We used the thicker styrofoam glow stick for my daughter's recent Star Wars themed birthday party- read about the entire party ---> HERE.

The lightsabers will light up as long as the glow stick lasts. 

Materials needed:

  • Glow Stick- we prefer the thicker and longer ones
  • Silver tape
  • Black marker
  • Silver nail polish 


Carefully remove the glow stick from the package to make sure that you do not ignite the glow stick. 

STEP 2: 

Add strips of silver tape as you would like at one end of the glow stick. I used 2 strips and then my kids asked to make some a bit differently to look like different Star Wars characters hilts.


Use the black marker to decorate the silver tape. My kids did all of this step!


Paint the end of the hilt with silver nail polish.
