Are you or your kids great Star Wars Fans? Then of course you will want to try some Star Wars Craft Ideas especially on Star Wars Day or maybe when the kids are bored!

If you are looking for some Star Wars Craft Ideas then you have come to the right place!

You can do Star Wars Crafts any day of the year but you will definitely want to do them on Star Wars Day each year which of course is May 4th (May the Fourth be with you!)

This is the one day that you can proudly display your love for star wars to the general public and say, "Hey, it's Star Wars Day!" Following are two quick Star Wars craft ideas, one for the girls and one for the boys. Don't worry, they are easy to make and after a quick run to the craft store, you can be done within a matter of an hour.

Note: You can really make these for any day of the year to celebrate your love for Star Wars - but you won't be able to use the 'Star Wars Day' excuse!

For The Girls - Princess Leia's Hair Buns

Easy Star Wars Crafts For The Girls

Do you want to replicate one of the only hairstyles that everyone on the planet recognizes? This easy craft makes the Princess Leia's buns from wool and a headband.

Materials You Will Need

Brown wool yarn (or yarn that matches your hair)
Serrated knife
1 Foam ball as big or as little as you desire - it's your hairstyle!

Steps for Making This Easy Star Wars Craft

Step 1 - Using a serrated knife, cut the foam ball in half.

Step 2 - Make a hole in each half of the foam ball for your ears. You can use the knife to do this. I recommend the cut and then test method so that you don't go too big or too small.

Step 3 - Put glue on the outside of the foam and start winding the yarn, starting from the inside, in a circular pattern. Continue all the way to the outside of the foam and ensure that you have covered up all the foam, including the edges.

Step 4 - Cut the yarn at the spot that you end, and then ensure the yarn is firmly on the surface by pressing and holding it down. Let dry.

Step 5 - Put glue all over the headband and start wrapping the yarn around the headband. Work your way from one side to the other. When you have completely covered the headband in the wool, press down the wool all over the headband to ensure it is on there well. Let dry.

Step 6 - Put headband on. Put one bun on your right ear and make a mark on the headband where the bun will sit, or just use your finger to keep track of where the meeting point will be.

Step 7 - On the inside of the bun, spread some glue on the foam and press the area you marked on the headband into the glue. Hold firmly and let dry for a few minutes. (You may even want to give it a few extra minutes to dry so that you don't break it off when testing out the other headband point.)

Step 8 - Repeat step 6 and 7 with left side.

Step 8 - Go out and sport the most memorable hairstyle ever!

For The Boys - Stuffed Chewbacca

Brilliant Star Wars Crafts That The Kids Will Love

What youngster (and some not so young guys) doesn't love to make the noises of Chewbacca? Admit it!

This is a project meant for kids, but really everyone will be able to use their imagination with this one and enjoy looking at and talking to their stuffed Chewbacca.

Materials You Will Need

  • Brown yarn
  • Bag of stuffing
  • Old sweatshirt
  • Glue
  • Needle and thread
  • Black Buttons

Making Your Stuffed Chewbacca

Step 1 - Cut the arms off the sweatshirt.

Step 2 - Sew the neck and arm holes up with the needle and thread.

Step 3 - Stuff the shirt with the stuffing and then sew up the bottom.

Step 4 - Cut off pieces of yarn in various lengths to create the 'fur' for Chewbacca. Do this by measuring the length of the sweater and cutting out pieces of yarn equal to that length. Then you can play around with how much shorter you cut each length, and how many lengths you want.

Step 5 - Glue the yarn to the shirt. Do it in sections starting from the top and working your way down, and let each section dry before you move to the next. Use the longest pieces first at the top. Once dry, flip them up so that you can glue on the next section. Gluing the next section relatively close to the first will help you create a full layered look, so if you would like a less full look, then glue the sections further apart. Continue until all thread is glued on.

Step 5 - Sew buttons on your Chewbacca to create the nose and eyes.

Step 6 - Have fun!
