Star Wars mania has hit my house. The premiere of the new movie is less than a week away and I can’t wait. My husband & I are already planning our Star Wars date night. My daughter is not that much into Star Wars yet, but she is still always willing to help me with a craft, no matter what it may be.
What you will need:
2 Paper bowls
2 sections of egg carton cups
2 sections of egg carton pointed
2 long narrow pieces of cardboard about 14″ long
Gray or silver paint
Black & Silver markers
Cut your egg carton & cardboard pieces.
Glue the two paper bowls together with the wooden skewer centered in the middle.
Paint all of your pieces. I removed the skewer so that my daughter could paint & not poke herself. (Notice her festive attire. She has been in her holiday dress the whole weekend. She loves being Mrs. Claus.)
Let all the pieces dry. Draw the windows of interceptor with black & silver markers in the center of the bowl.
I slid the skewer back through & the cut two slits into the egg carton pieces & slid it through. Use a glue gun to secure the egg carton in place & do this to the opposite end as well.
Next glue the pointed egg carton end to the center of the cardboard pieces. Bend the cardboard on both ends at about 5″ in. Use a bead of glue in the crease to keep the bend formed.
Squeeze glue into the hole at the top of the pointed egg carton section. Add glue to the top of the section and onto the skewer.
Let the glue dry.
My daughter does not like Star Wars, but did still have fun flying our new interceptor around.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
This is perfect and we are so excited and seeing the new movie this Saturday at our local IMAX theatre. Cannot wait!! 🙂
