Daddy has been rocking the duct tape. How awesome is duct tape these days? The colors that are available make it so much fun to work with.
The shield is based on Hiccup’s shield from HTTYD. B whipped it up from cardboard and duct tape and a little bit of white glue.
He stacked and glued some graduated cardboard circles to make the bump on the front, then covered the whole thing in duct tape.
B then used half-width strips of shiny silver to make the lightning bolts on the front and added a handle to the back.
It is totally awesome!
Daddy also made a viking hat, but mommy got distracted and didn’t take construction pics. Oops. Anyway, the crown was shaped on my hat block, starting with the duct tape sticky side up and then covered with a second layer of tape sticky side down. He shaped the horns using a funky cardboard spine that was then wrapped in tape and filled with expanding foam filler. The bumps are little balls of tape covered with shiny tape.
The boys love it.
