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!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
For this project, you will need:
*A plastic easter egg
*A small plastic ball (see picture)
*White acrylic paint
*Hot glue gun
Step 2: 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
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!
