How to Dress Up Your Raygun

Step Four: Add bling, if desired

I started with a little mini Nerf gun. It’s about 6 inches long and was about $3. For the tot I bought a package of $1 space-age looking squirtguns.We were going for tiny, dainty rayguns, but this can be done with the big Nurf guns or Supersoakers.
