DIY Star Wars Christmas Ornaments

Sewing Projects

I was looking to make a Star-Wars themed present, and it occurred to me that with a bit of felt and imagination, some of the characters would look like traditional Christmas angel decorations.  See?

Of course, I drew up the pattern too.  I think Princess Leia is my favourite; I’m going to have to make more of these.  Just print and cut out the shapes as marked, embroider (or draw) on the details, then sew (or glue) them together with a little stuffing inside.  You’ll need:

  • this free Star Wars ornament pattern
  • felt (black and red for Darth Vader; green and beige for Yoda; brown, skin-toned, white and black for Leia)
  • needle and thread (black, green, brown, white and silver used here) or fabric glue and markers if you’re not in the mood to sew
  • stuffing

You can also use the same technique to make all sorts of cute ornaments, like this dachshund:

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, Io Saturnalia, and Happy Isaac Newton’s Birthday!
