Introduction: BB8 Easter Egg/Secret Safe

Picture of BB8 Easter Egg/Secret Safe

Hey guys! In this instructable, I'll be showing you how to build your very own BB8 (or should I say BB-EGG?). Now, let's begin!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

For this project, you will need:
*A plastic easter egg
*A small plastic ball (see picture)
*Electrical tape
*Steel wire
*White acrylic paint

*Hot glue gun

Step 2: Cutting the Ball

Picture of Cutting the Ball

Cut a round hole in the top of the plastic ball. It should be barely big enough to squeeze the long end of the plastic egg through.

Step 3: Putting It Together

Picture of Putting It Together

Put a liberal amount of hot glue into the plastic ball, and squeeze the egg inside, as shown. You should now have a form resembling bb8.

Note: make sure that the egg's "hinge" stays above the mouth of the ball. You'll want to be able to open it later.

Step 4: Painting

Take your BB8 form and paint it completely white with the acrylic paint.

Step 5: Detailing

You're so close! Now, take a small length of wire, and make an antenna like in the picture. Use sharpies to draw BB-8's features. And finally, enjoy! You can use your BB8 as a storage place, to keep pocket change, or as an easter egg in an egg hunt!
