Introduction: Tie Fighter Ornament

About: I am a graphic artist during the day and at night, I create soul food. Currently working on designing a fantasy world with a silent comic component online (belmacomic.com). LOVE to illustrate and design. C...

I'm making a "Darth Vader" (ish) Christmas tree. I got a little carried away when I bought the tree and also purchased a few little silver gaudy ornaments. I couldn't resist the shiny.

The "Darth" parts are to be made out of perler beads. I wanted to continue the theme/look and decided that some of the ornaments could also be Tie fighters with perler wings to match.

SUPPLIES:

  1. glue gun
  2. parchment paper
  3. perler beads (good selection at Joanns)
    • black
    • grey/silver
    • black white checkered
  4. smaller silver/grey ornaments
  5. iron

Step 1: Construct

PARTS:

  • 2 wings
  • 2 joints
  • 1 front window

If you are not familiar with perler beads, essentially you are placing beads on a peg board and melting them into place with an iron. Tutorials can be found on youtube <https://youtu.be/nvNde93w75g>

Step 2: Essemble

HOT GLUE

  1. window first to orient and center everything else to.
  2. joints
  3. last attach wings. (NOTE: make sure the wings are lined up. My first had them rotated off from each other)

Cheers ^^
