R2-D2 Anything Craft

From Disney Inspired


You don’t have to be a Tatooine Jawa to find this droid – simply make your own at home! Grab your droid tools and a fellow Jedi, because you’re going to make your very own R2-D2 in your own home. Snip and stick to see an ordinary piece of furniture transform into an R2-series astromech droid! (Brooks Propulsion rocket booster not included!)

What You’ll Need
  • R2-D2 sized piece of furniture
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Paint (silver and dark blue)
  • Masking tape
  • R2D2 Pattern

How To Make It

  1. Print the template and cut out the R2-D2 bits and pieces. Choose an item of furniture and paint the top quarter with silver paint and allow to dry
  2. Paint strips of masking tape with your blue paint and allow to dry
  3. Apply the blue masking tape leaving a collar of silver visible below the tape
  4. Glue and add your droid pieces as space allows
  5. After allowing everything to dry, you now have your own R2-D2 unit!
