What Can You Craft with a Captain America Theme?

I can't wait for Captain America to hit theaters in just a few days, so I've been watching all the new movie tie-ins and features closely. ToyWiz carries a fantastic Captain America Deluxe Metal Shield, and I think the Captain America Temporary Face Tattoo is particularly amusing. But if you're a do-it-yourself or crafty type, you might want to try some of the projects I found on Instructables.com.

You can make a Captain America shield from just about anything that's round and curved, including:

And even if the results aren't exactly move-accurate props, these projects look like fun and turned out fantastic for the skilled DIYers at Instructables.

If you're a fan wanting to show off your love of Captain America and your crafting skills, what would you make?

What does it say of me I have the giant replica steel shield that they put out years ago?

I think it says you've got good taste. I hope it is hanging on your wall in a place of prominence.

What does it say about me that the year before Katrina, I dressed my big dog Ranger as Captain America for the Mardi Gras dog parade?

I'd make a shield from the front of a fan!
