Intro: 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 :)

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