In a galaxy far far away, there lived a girl who loved all things Darth, Chewie and Millennium Falcon. Ok ok. It’s me. But you already know that. I’m a Star Wars fan by default….my dad thought the movies were cool….my older brother always wanted to watch them…so I was that little girl who loved ewoks and Princess Leia and Obe-Wan just as much as Rainbow Brite, She-Ra and Barbies. And I take passing that love on to my kids very seriously….
Isn’t that little Will…err…Master Yoda just too cute?!
And Jeremy even tolerates my love of all things Star Wars by dressing up as my number 2….or when I like the rug in my kids room because yes, it does look like a Yoda profile. Even our dog – Bear….his technical name is Chewbacca Sugarbear. Tough and sweet that one 🙂
So I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Star War inspired DIY’s from the vast galaxy known as the internet.
Let’s start with this room from Savannah from Classy Clutter. Those girls are so talented and this theme is perfect for a little boy’s room. Here is the direct link to the room reveal.
You can make these simple no-sew Jedi in training costumes for all your little ones. This project is by Sara at MomEndeavors. Here is the link to the post.
I met sweet Amy from Her Tool Belt this past week and love her take on the Tie Interceptor shelf. She calls it a Star Wars shelf….but we use technical terms in our house….not for body parts but definitely for Star Wars starfighters 🙂 Here is the link and tutorial!
If you have been looking for an inexpensive way to make a Star Wars costume, here are complete DIY instructions on how to make this Boba Fett inspired helmet. It’s made from CARDBOARD. So cool.
A super easy and versatile idea is to makeover your painted globe into the Death Star! I have already painted a globe black (and yes it happened years ago when people made fun of me and called me stupid and threw rotten tomatoes)….so BOOM…this proves that even a black globe is TIMELESS. Great job to Pat at In My Wheele House! Here is the direct link!
And one of my favorite Star Wars infused rooms is from Erin Spain. She’s amazing and an Atlanta girl too 🙂 You need to follow her! I love how she incorporated her husbands’ taste into the artwork in her coffee bar makeover. The force is obviously strong with this one.
If you are looking just to incorporate some star wars into your life with the power of a debit card, here are some of my favorites (click the photo for direct shopping links)….
And I must wrap this up with the obvious….
MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!!!!
