  4. Use a pencil to trace the styrofoam wreath form onto the cardboard sheet and then cut out the traced circle. Use the craft knife to cut along the top of the cardboard sheet to make it appear like a plank of wood.
  5. Trace the glass bowl onto the green craft foam and cut out using scissors.
  6. Cut out a hole in the green craft foam circle using the awl and string the clear cord through the circle, then tape onto the cardboard target plank using clear shipping tape.

  8. Use a craft knife to cut out swords from the cardboard sheets.
  9. Use a tape runner to adhere the smaller piece of the sword to the center of the larger piece. Cover the hilt of the sword with yellow tape and cover the blade of the sword with silver metallic tape.
  10. Cut out the Pegasus templates and stick them onto the white waste bin.
