How to Make a Cricket Bat For a Costume

DIY Cricket Bat

At the last second I decided to go ahead and make a Halloween costume. I was inspired by a commercial for the movie Shaun of the Dead. Funny zombie movie. How cool would that be? I mean I’m going to go out and oversee my kids why not wear something fun? I quickly collected that basics, white shirt, red tie, name badge, and a cricket bat. The first three are easy, I can either make or buy those but a cricket bat is something that I’m a bit short on. I’ve held one before so I know what they look like up close so armed with that and a few photos off the ‘net I can come up with something that should look pretty close to a bat.
