No pirate is complete without a pirate cutlass sword. How would he go marauding or swashbuckling without it. So here is a pirate sword template to show you how to make your very own pirate cutlass sword.
Bear in mind that since most of our pirates are a little under-age, the pirate cutlass sword we show you how to make is a cardboard pirate sword of course – although it looks a lot like an authentic pirate cutlass.
The pirate cutlass sword is party of our pirate party craft program.
You can make these pirate swords from card stock or cereal boxes.
If they are old enough, then allow each child to make their own sword as a keepsake as part of their party loot or if they are too small to make their own then make the swords beforehand and all each child to decorate their own sword as part of the party crafts.
Although the swords are cardboard, they do have a sharp point, so if you pirate party guests are too small, then consider rounding the edges of the swords – for safety sake.
We hope you like our pirate cutlass sword. If you make them, please like our facebook page so we can share more of our crafts with other tiny pirates.
This is what our completed pirate cutlass sword looks like:
