A few weeks ago I posted a blog post of a group of sock monkeys in July 4th theme that consist of Captain America Sock Monkey, Mabel Sock Monkey and Amery Sock Monkey. The blog post also consists of the information about the socks and the tutorial I used to make them. I have promised to show you how to make the Captain America’s Shield in toy version and here it is the quick and easy tutorial on how to DIY it, even kids can make it under the supervision of an adult. The shield is about 4 5/8″ in diameter and 3/8″ in depth, with a handle to hold on. It is made from the base of a plastic bottle/container and some felt. If you need a bigger version for the kids to hold in the coming Halloween, make it with a bigger size of a container.
I always wanted to complete the Captain America Sock Monkey with his indestructible armor and I am happy that he has got one with him now. If you have other Captain America toy that needs to pair it with his great defensive and offensive piece of equipment, this could be the DIY Captain America’s shield tutorial for it. Besides using felt, you may even spray painted it, or glue it with colored papers or other mediums. Just do it the way you think it is the best suit you.
Please click the second page to get the full tutorial together with a printable pdf template of the shield.
