There are loads of ways of making a good keyblade with cheap materials but it depends on skill level as well.

It also depends on which keyblade you're making as a Kingdom Key will be far simpler than the Oblivion or the Ultima Weapon LOL

Cheapest option is cardboard. It may sound stupid, but cardboard is severely underrated and can be used for a miltitude of things. Plus it can be built upon for easy 3D effects!

i made mine from a silver broom pole which was silver, i managed to strip the plastic of it to reveal a metal pole, made a slit in it and then i'd advise foam, or going with sjbonnar's idea card for the blade bit and the handle but make sure you use lots of glue to hold it in the end ^^

If you can pick up some free corrugated card (from boxes used for packaging mainly), from a supermarket or elsewhere, then you can make a keyblade with a few layers of that, stuck together with masking tape, which will also cover the gaps at the edges.

If you have any spare emulsion - wall paint, a base coat of that helps to make the whole thing smooth

Otherwise paint over the top in the correct colours - acrylic paint works well, you can get cheap larger tubes from shops like The Works, or other cheap shops with arty stuff
