So, your kid wants to be Max from Where the Wild Things Are? Well, he definitely can’t be the King of All Wild Things without a scepter, right?!
My husband put together this scepter for my son’s costume last year and was nice enough to document his progress. Ah, the perks of being married to a craft blogger. ;) I’m sorry about having to use the flash on the pictures but most of the work was done after the kids went down for the night. Not real good natural lighting at 8 in the evening!
Let me know if you have any questions. Jim drew out a diagram so that should help with the measurements but really, we just kinda winged this as we went. Hope your Max enjoys his scepter!

Once again, feel free to comment if you’re confused about any part of this tutorial. It’s kinda hard writing a tutorial to a project you didn’t create. If I don’t know the answer, I can always aks my husband.
And speaking of him, thanks, My Love, for humoring me a year ago and taking pictures of each step. I love you for supporting my blog habit! :D
