Easy BB-8 Kids Craft for Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Have you fallen in love with BB-8 yet? Well, let me introduce you!
In just a few days the world is definitely going to know and love the newest droid of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And to celebrate your child’s new favorite Star Wars character, we made this adorable and easy BB-8 Kids Craft! So pull out your crafting supplies and your kids for an afternoon of fun with this Stained Glass BB-8 Kids Craft for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and help countdown the days until this epic movie release!
Here’s how to make this easy and frugal Star Wars craft:
What You Will Need
- White Posterboard (or cardstock if you’d like a smaller BB-8…but we went big!)
- Orange Construction Paper
- Black Construction Paper
- White Tissue Paper
- Clear Contact Paper
Using a large circle stencil (or in my instance a leftover foam ring wreath), trace onto the white cardstock to make ring and cut out as shown. This is BB-8’s body. Using a smaller circle stencil (or my tupperware lid), trace a semi circle shape onto the white cardstock and cut out as shown. This is BB-8’s head. Using the same smaller circle stencil, cut out the above shape into the orange construction paper. Make 2 circles, 1 large and 1 small into the black construction paper.
Cut out 2 equal size pieces of contact paper, large enough to lay BB-8’s body and head onto (leaving excess to cut off later).
Take off the backing to one of the pieces of contact paper, sticky side up. Place the smaller white semi circle on top for BB-8’s head. Right underneath, lay out the large white ring. In the middle of the ring, place the orange shape. Now take your 2 black dots and place inside of the head as shown.
Cut tissue paper into equal sized squares. Place tissue paper squares inside the body and head of BB-8.
Now cover BB-8 with the other sheet of contact paper, sticky side down and seal. Cut off excess.
Hang BB-8 in your window and show your LOVE for the newest Star Wars: The Force Awakens droid! LOVING this little guy hanging from our window! Total cost for this craft? A whopping $1.36! YES! 🙂

This is so cute. It sounds like it might be something I can even do. Thank you so much for sharing
How cute! I love how you simplified him, but he is still so recognizable. I love doing tissue paper stained glass crafts with my daughter because she can place the paper herself and she loves using glue. We will definitely be trying this soon!
Can’t wait to see how it turns out, Katy!
