3D BB-8 From Star Wars | Bead Sprites (Perler/Hama Beads)





Introduction: 3D BB-8 From Star Wars | Bead Sprites (Perler/Hama Beads)

Fans of Star Wars will recognise this little droid who appears in the latest movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the companion of one of the female protagonist Rey.

Create your own little BB-8 following this simple nerdy tutorial and have him decorate and protect your home!

Materials/Tools Used:

  • Perler/Hama Beads ( Grey, Black, Orange, Red and Blue)
  • Masking Tape
  • Small Round Pegboard

  • Iron
  • Iron Paper
  • Hot Glue

Why masking tape?

The reason behind this method I use in all my perler/hama beads creations is to be able to keep your pegboards alive, since the heat from the ironing process can melt, bend/warm and ruin your creation. Also I have learned that if you poke holes on your masking tape it will help the beads to breath better and not form holes :)

    Ok its cool. Check out Speedbead's BB-8 video and see if you can make it rounder. Other than that, AWESOME

    Perler beads are meant to be flat, so trying to make it round this is the closest one I could get :)
