May the 4th be with You! 20 Star Wars Crafts to Celebrate

Star Wars Crafts

Your favorite holiday is coming up soon! Star Wars Day, aka May the 4th, ie. “May the 4th be with you,” is a  much-anticipated day in my family, as it brings Star Wars games, Star Wars crafts, and of COURSE a Star Wars movie marathon, during which there will be an extra Star Wars movie this year!

At CAGW, we’ve got you covered for your own May the 4th festivities; here are my favorite eco-friendly Star Wars crafts:

1. American Girl doll costumesThese Star Wars costumes should fit any 18″ doll.

2. Boba Fett pillowAlthough the tutorial calls for felt, you could substitute fleece, or use cotton fabric and allow extra room for hemming.

3. concrete magnetsSilicon molds aren’t a natural supply, but you can repurpose them for SO many different projects.

4. Death Star bath bombThere’s a Death Star in your bathtub! If you don’t want to use corn starch, it would be worth experimenting with tapioca starch for this project.

5. Death Star globeTHIS is what to make with that old-school globe that’s no longer accurate.

6. Obi-Wan costumeHere’s a tutorial for creating a full Obi-Wan Kenobe costume, because I know that you want to walk around in costume all day on May the 4th.

7. origami Darth VaderThis 44-minute video tute is not for the faint of heart, but if you’re familiar with origami, then you should be able to follow it.

8. Princess Leia headbandWear this to school or work on May the 4th! Don’t forget to use cotton or wool yarn, instead of acrylic.

9. R2-D2 apronThis is SO much better than “Kiss the Cook.”

10. R2-D2 cakeThe instructions are for cutting the cake to look like R2-D2, so you’re free to use your favorite cake recipe.

11. R2-D2 pencil cupHere’s a great way to upcycle some tin cans!

12. recycled droidsJust remember that crafting with materials like aluminum foil and straws isn’t upcycling unless you’ve previously used them.

13. Rey’s hairThose of us with medium to long hair can sport Rey’s hairstyle as we casually go about our business on May the 4th.

14. Star Wars chalk artIt’s not as hard as it looks!

15. Star Wars marquee signIt would be a simple thing to use upcycled pallet wood instead of the cedar planks called for in this tutorial.

16. Star Wars snowflakesWho cares that it’s not Christmas? These Star Wars snowflakes are the PERFECT decoration for a Star Wars party.

17. Star Wars T-shirt quiltOkay, you may not be able to make this quilt for *this* May the 4th, but if you start saving T-shirts now, especially if you’ve got a Star Wars fan who’s still growing, then you’ll be ready to amaze everyone next May!

18. stenciled Darth Vader shoesAltering brand-new shoes isn’t upcycling, as it’s called in this tutorial. However, it’s still a great project that gives you fancy Star Wars shoes!

19. Storm Trooper cut-out shirtHere’s a T-shirt craft for all of you non-sewers out there.

20. upcycled Darth Vader pinataThis pinata begins with an old cardboard box, and ends up as epic Star Wars party fun.

Quick! Comment below and tell me your best theory about who Rey’s parents are!

About the Author

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now. Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
