We made these simple light sabers for Jack's Star Wars Party.
We found the glow sticks at the Dollar Store.
My husband bought the pvc pipe at Home Depot for around $4.
He took a glow stick with him to be sure it would be a snug fit in the pipe.
Home Depot is so awesome, they even cut the pipe for us.
To transform the pipe and glow stick into a light saber, we simply used silver duct tape to connect the two. They were pretty cool, because once the kids got them, they could activate them by "breaking" the stick. It was fun seeing all of the sabers glowing!
