It’s arguably one of the coolest moments in Avengers: Endgame. At the finale when everything looks lost for our heroes, Tony Stark wears his own version of the Infinity Gauntlet, and repeats the iconic lines from his first movie outing – “I am Iron Man.” And thus, he snaps his fingers and saves the entire universe from the threat of Thanos. And sadly sacrifices his own life in the process. But we learned that the Iron Gauntlet was now one of the coolest gizmos ever in a Marvel movie.
Fans who want to commemorate that moment of heroic sacrifice can of course buy one of the high end replicas, or maybe one of the toy plastic versions. But what if you want something you made yourself, just like Tony did? Well, thanks to this DIY video from SeansCrafts, (via Geeks Are Sexy) you can now learn how to make your own Iron Gauntlet. Only not out of metal, out of everyday ordinary cardboard. And a few bottle of acrylic paint as well.
There are a lot of DIY videos out there. Some for making props and costume based on famous movies and TV shows. We’ve seen everything from how to make Wonder Woman’s costume to how to create Freddy Krueger’s infamous gloves. But most of them require products not commonly found in one’s own home to make them. But almost everybody has some form of cardboard gathering dust in their garage.
If the Iron Gauntlet isn’t enough, the same YouTube channel has instructions on how to make a similar version of Spider-Man’s web shooters. He also has a ton of other non movie related cardboard creations, like pinball machines and even a skee-ball machine. To check out those and other videos, be sure to head on over to the SeanCrafts YouTube channel.
