Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools and Materials.
For this build we gonna need:
- Transparent or clean white glass christmas ornament.
- White acrylic paint (if you use a transparent ornament)
- Smaller size white plastic ornament
- Printable sticker paper
- Xacto knife
- Sharpie (black and orange)
Step 2: Making a Body of the BB8 Droid
I started with a blank, transparent ornament, and to make it white I poured some acrylic paint inside. Don't need to fill the whole ball with paint, just a little bit to cover the inside walls. You don't need to do this step if you already have a clean white ornament you can work with.
Step 3: Side Stickers
Go HERE and get a template to print side stickers for the droid. If you don't have a sticker paper you can print on a regular paper when glue it to the ornament. Make a cut from the edge to the middle of the sticker, it will help to wrap it around the side of the ball.
Step 4: Making the Head Part.
I made the head of the droid from a white plastic ornament.
Cut the top.
Sand the edges.
Paint it with sharpie.
Step 5: Connect Two Parts Together
Push a string or a ribbon thought a hole at the top of the head part and tight it up at the loop of the first ornament.
Step 6: And Here It Is! Your BB8 Droid Ornament Is Ready.
It will give your christmas tree extra points of Force this year =)
Step 7: Enjoy
