We want to give a shout out to funhamsters 31.
Thanks for the request and Just Craft It.
Start by making the body for BB-8.
If you don’t have one round Styrofoam ball, glue two halves together.
This one is four and a half inches and once I glue it together it rolls around.
So to make it stay straightI’m gonna press on the bottom as hard as I can and since its Styrofoam it’ll puta little invention on the bottom to make it flat and that way it stays still.
Now take the printables from our blog, cut them out.
Cut little slits in them that way its easier to apply to the round surface of the Styrofoam ball and if you don’t have sticky paper like this you can always use glue to apply it.
It’ll just take a little bit longer for the glue to set.
Press out any air bubbles that might be underneath the printable and then apply all of the stickers to BB-8’s body like this.
Once you have BB-8’s body complete you can set it aside and now work on his head.
For the head we’re using a halfStyrofoam ball which is three and a quarter inches and we’re using the printables for his head and again we’re cutting slits in it so it fits perfectly on the round surface and just apply the head stickers the same as before pressing out any air bubbles.
And then these little stickers go along the bottom of his head like this and then in the front you wanna leave room for his eyes.
Now for the eyes you want to use black buttons, beads or a marble and if you don’t have black you can always take what you do have and color it black with a Sharpie.
I think a marble is the perfect shape and size for an eye on BB-8.
So we colored the marble black and this is the big one up top and then we have a smaller one.
It’ll go just right here.
Now I keep saying his but I think BB-8 is actually a female girl.
Now for BB-8’s antennas, take two different size toothpicks and paint them white and then paint the longer one’s tip black and then just stick them right through the top.
Just like that.
And now the head is complete for BB-8.
To attach the head to the body just take a longer toothpick or chop stick or BBQ skewer, just stick it right through the body and stick it right through the head exactly where you want it and if you want the head to move around, don’t glue it into place, but if you want the head to stay still be sure to glue it on the toothpick.
