How to make a Cutlass
You can easily make a cutlass out of a piece of cardboard and duct tape. We decided this was a quick fun project to create to get us ready for a pirate-filled weekend.
Simply draw the shape on a piece of cardboard and cut with a craft knife.
Then cover the cardboard with duct tape to give it the traditional silver color.

One year my son wanted to be Captain Jack for Halloween. We made a super simple yarn wig to give him the perfect pirate hair!
