This fake scythe made of wood, foam and silver electrical tap might not cut wheat but is the perfect accessory for the coming Halloween!

Purchase a piece of dowling and paint or stain it brown. Take a piece of foam and cut it to look like a scythe blade. Begin at the point, and wrap with the silver electrical tape, being careful to overlap your previous wrap. Keep wrapping until you get near the end that you’ll attach to the dowel.

Attach the end of the blade to the dowel with several wraps of the tape. Then, finish wrapping the blade to the dowel.  Doing it in this process makes it easier to wrap the majority of the blade before you attach it to the dowel. Then, wrapping over the tape that attaches the blade to the dowel, makes it more durable — it should last as long as the Halloween party or trick or treating!
