How to Make Fake Cigars

Save

If you are putting together a theatrical production, it is helpful to have costumes and costume accessories that will add to the development of the characters in the play. For example, you can have a businessman or a mafia leader in a play carry a prop cigar to make him look more authentic. You can make your own prop cigars using basic craft materials that can be found at an art-supply store.

Things You'll Need

  • Toilet-paper tube
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape
  • Craft glue
  • Brown crepe paper
  • Gold foil

Step 1

Cut a toilet-paper tube down its length.

Step 2

Roll the tube back up tightly, starting at one of the longest sides, and working your way to the opposite side.

Step 3

Tape the roll lengthwise with masking tape to secure it.

Step 4

Cut the ends of the roll into points using scissors.

Step 5

Snip the very tips to round them out slightly.

Step 6

Apply craft glue to the outside of the roll.

Step 7

Wrap brown crepe paper around the roll in a spiral, starting at one end and wrapping it around the roll until you reach the other end.

Step 8

Cut out a 2-inch-long, 1/2-inch-wide rectangle from gold foil, which can be found at a craft store.

Step 9

Wrap the rectangle around the middle of the cigar form, and glue the ends to secure it. This will make it look like a real cigar.
