These projects combine two of my favorite things – handmade and Star Wars. Check out these 35+ Star Wars crafts that are out of this world.
I can’t explain what a big role Star Wars has had in my life. It’s been my favorite movie since I was young. Here’s a few examples: in 8th grade, I got 12″ tall statues of all the characters for Christmas. I own the Trivial Pursuit game and used to play tournaments.
I also have a Star Wars pillowcase on my bed right now. I could go on and on! What I’m trying to say is that when you combine Star Wars and crafting, you’ve basically put two of my favorite things in the world together.
I’ve also made a few force inspired crafts – like my Christmas tree, luminaries, and pumpkins. So how could I help but pull together a collection of DIY Star Wars crafts? These are so awesome, I’ll just have to let you scroll down to see what I’m talking about.
I’d love to know which one of these DIY Star Wars projects is your favorite!
