DIY Captain America Shield

As you know, Mister selected Captain America as his costume for Halloween.  After searching all the local stores and not being able to find a Captain America shield, I decided we’d make our own.

I made this printable Captain America Shield (in Paintshop Pro X4) and printed it on white paper.

Then I cut it out, and used our Scotch laminator (available at or at to laminate it.

Finally, I used packaging tape to affix it to a Styrofoam plate and used Duck tape to make a handle.
