It’s been a while since one of my Let’s Craft posts, so here we go 🙂
Ever since I made our son a Kylo Ren Lightsaber out of beads, I wanted to give the Warglaive(s) of Azzinoth a shot. It would make a perfect gift for a friend, and a different challenge craft wise, so I made it from scratch, and it sure took a good chunk of hours.
But I like the result (for a first attempt at this), and I hope it can inspire someone out there too 🙂
This how it looked before it got ironed on both sides.
And after it’s done. (Still cooling off here though)
What’s really cool about it is, that I managed to find beads, that are a little see-through for the details inside.
But the coolest thing of all is, that those beads are glowing in the dark, too, which just fits the Warglaive perfectly!
I wanted to make two, and iron them together to make it more sturdy, but I am afraid the glow-beads might end up not looking good, so this is it. But I highly recommend doing it to almost any other tope of beads, even though it’s double work, it’s worth the effort.
I used the classic Hama Beads for the entire Warglaive. (I’m not advertising for that specific brand in general, it’s just what the store had)
My next project might be Frostmourne, I think. Hubby likes Arthas a lot and we met in WotlK in the game. 🙂 And it’s really fun to make these from scratch, instead of just using a template. Originally I wanted to make Ysera too, but wow, that was tough with all the details, and the fact that I am restricted to a certain size because of the ” beads boards” I have.
I hope this inspires someone out there – happy crafting everyone and enjoy your evening 🙂
Oh, right, the Kylo Ren Lightsaber, which inspired me to give this a try, looked like this (I didn’t plan to share it, so haven’t actually got a shot of the final result, but I can take one)
This is how it looked like before ironing though. It was actually far easier to make than the Warglaive, I think! Way more straight forward.
Ok, that’s all, take good care of each other 🙂
