Be a DIY Jedi!
May the Fourth be with you! Celebrate unofficial-official Star Wars Day (May 4) with these easy light-up sabers.
- Cut a clear T12 light-guard tube (about $4 at hardware stores) to 25½ inches.
- Tightly roll a 25 x 4¼-inch strip of vellum or tissue paper, insert it into the light guard, and adjust so ½ inch remains uncovered at one end, using a bit of clear tape to hold in place.
- Close the other end with the plastic cap that comes with the tube.
- Wrap electrical tape around the lamp end of a 1½-inch diameter LED flashlight until the tube slips over it snugly, then secure it with tape on the outside.
- Switch on to play!
