Let’s Craft! #4: Warglaives of Azzinoth

 

It’s been a while since one of my Let’s Craft posts, so here we go πŸ™‚

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 differentΒ  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 πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

 


 

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 πŸ™‚

  1. This is so cool!!! And you made your son a Star Wars gift! That tops the β€œAwesomeness scale” πŸ˜€

    That is amazing! You should tweet or mail the pic to Blizzard, they would love to see it πŸ˜€
    I can only imagine the hours it took, but the end result sure is perfect.

    I’m thinking about a new project, something for Princess and WoW related. I already have the basic idea, it’s related to Stormheim.
    The last project I did was for my dad’s birthday, he is quite the wine connoisseur so I crafted him a tabletop bottle holder for our family house in the countryside near the sea, made of reclaimed wood (reclaimed from wooden wine crates) decorated with corals and seashells (I gather them since I was a kid, and on my travels to more exotic island countries I managed to get some pretty cool ones ^^). I also realised I need more tools to work with lumber, I had to improvise a bit xD

    On a side note, there are so few WoW DIY ideas out there, we need to start inspiring our community more πŸ˜›

    1. Thanks a lot, Lord πŸ™‚ Hah, fond of Star Wars too, eh? Our son is crazy about it! Gosh, the amount of tough names I have had to learn these past few months. (They are hard for a 4 year old to say, when it’s not our native language)

      Hm, yeah, maybe I will, then πŸ™‚ Perhaps I’ll include a picture of it in my next mail to Blizzard!

      Oooh, that sounds very neat! Tell me more of that project? πŸ˜€ Awww, will you show what you crafted to your dad? And those corals and seashells too!? Oh, oh, have a “Real life” section on your blog!

      Yeah, do that! πŸ™‚

      1. Hmmmm reading this I realised we have a sub tab on “Our Adventures” called “Elsewhere”. I think I’m gonna do a post on the gift Lord made for me, with potions (WoW related, of course)!

  2. Nice, that looks great! I should really get some more Warcraft swag decorating my room. The only thing I have so far is a Blizzard logo shirt.

    How big did the glaive turn out? I haven’t seen those kinds of beads in a long time.

    1. Thank you! Hah, swag. That word is fun πŸ˜€ Swag, swag. Yes, I really like a few gadgets here and there, I have the Faerie Dragon and a Murloc Solar thingy. πŸ™‚ I want more. But gosh, those shipping/tax costs…So unfortunate there is no Europe located store.

      Hmmm, it measures…I’ll get back to you on that, once I am home, okay? πŸ™‚

  3. Ooooh that looks so nice πŸ˜€ I love how it glows in the dark, that green glow seems really fitting πŸ™‚
    Now make a demon hunter to wield it! πŸ˜›

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ Yeah! It turned out so nice with the glow, had no idea beads like that existed.

      Haha, yes, I should πŸ™‚ Or dress up like one myself! Or perhaps our son could be Illidan for Halloween, haha, what a sight πŸ˜€

  4. The picture made me think of 8-bit or 16-bit WoW, or WoW in old school video game style, i can see Blizzard make it at least a 1st April joke: Now in WoW a new Raid in 2D … Mario is the end-boss πŸ˜€

    Nice glaive, i never thoguht of these beads as a way to make a decoration, thank you πŸ™‚

    1. I did the same thing when I was making it. Whenever I use those beads, actually πŸ™‚

      Haha, yes, and we could play it on a Game Boy then πŸ˜€

      Thank you πŸ™‚ You can make so much with those. Even a 3D Gingerbread House! That’s on my list once the Holiday is near again πŸ™‚

    1. πŸ™‚ I’m glad to hear! It was not that difficult to make – coming up with the pattern was what took the most time. Maybe the first picture in the post could help you along, if your son decides to try it out himrself πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so πŸ™‚ It was fun to make; I particularly love to come up with things where we can use stuff already in our household. Low expenses, but great, sturdy results which means lots of playtime πŸ™‚

      Be sure to share your projects!

    1. Thank you so πŸ™‚ It does – I found those beads that glow, like those stars and moons you can buy as stickers? Just shine a light on them, and after a while, they glow in the dark.
