21 amazing Star Wars DIY projects & gift ideas you’ll love

The ultimate collection of Star Wars DIY projects, something in here for fans young and old and everywhere in between

I’ve been waiting six years to create a Star Wars themed shared bedroom for my boys. I missed my chance when they were head over heels for clone troopers a while ago, so you better believe I’m not missing out this time! My little one has been eagerly anticipating the new Star Wars movie like just about everyone else on the planet and I think I’m just as excited for the film as I am for the second chance to make my vision for their room come true.

I’ve been collecting ideas for awhile, but more than just awesome shelving projects and pillowcase ideas for my boys you have got to see some of the incredible Star Wars DIY projects I’ve found online.

Any of these projects would also double as amazing Christmas gifts. Take a look! You can make everything from Darth Vader Shoes to a Lightsaber Cell Phone Case. There’s something here for everyone on your list!
