Birthdays and holidays are perfect excuses to drum up a little extra Star Wars decor but I like to enjoy Star Wars fun year-round. It’s easy, just add a little Star Wars home decor and you’ll be geeking out every day.
You can go full-on geek and create an entire Star Wars themed room or just choose a few projects to add throughout your house.
With my mom’s Wampa costume last year, I think I found the perfect DIY gift to make for her birthday below! Can you guess which one I’m talking about?
The Best Star Wars Crafts
One of my favorite Star Wars crafts has been our BB-8 Paper Lantern. Everyone loves BB-8, he is an adorable droid and best friends with Poe Dameron. You can create your own BB-8 paper lantern using my instructions and some duct tape! There’s even a video tutorial if you need a little extra help.
The BB-8 paper lantern is a great decoration for any Star Wars themed party including baby showers. We now have our BB-8 hung up over Elliot’s cool Star Wars bed tent! Also, don’t miss our DIY BB-8 costume which also utilizes a paper lantern and duct tape!
Another great Star Wars home decor craft we’ve made is Star Wars lightsaber lights. We originally made them for our Christmas tree but have made additional versions for a baby shower and Quinn’s bedroom. This Star Wars craft also uses duct tape, anyone noticing a theme? 😉

Star Wars Pillow Ideas
I love the simplicity of these Star Wars Pillow Cases from All for the Boys. It’s easy to customize the pillowcases to whichever characters you want and using the freezer paint method means, no fancy equipment is necessary!
You can also find some really cute Star Wars pillows on Etsy and bypass the whole DIY part. There are so many fun Star Wars pillow designs to choose from. I really like these Star Wars Superheroes covers!

I really love this DIY Death Star Disco Ball from Our Nerd Home, it’s so fun and I know it’d look great in my office on my desk! Who wants to make me one for Christmas?!

If you are super skilled then check out this concrete Death Star from We Must Be Dreamers. It’s perfect to hold a little succulent on your windowsill! I’ve never worked with concrete though, so I am not sure how hard this would be to make. You can also just buy one on Etsy from a variety of sellers.
Star Wars Wall Art
Star Wars wall art is just about everywhere. You can find something everyone else will have at a local store or make your own unique Star Wars wall art instead! These framed Star Wars Silhouettes from Southern Revivals are fairly simple and inexpensive to put together. Customize the size, frame, and color for to fit your bedroom decor
DIY Star Wars Canvas Wall Art from Giggles Galore is also easily customizable! Kick up the canvas look with Star Wars Lighted Canvas Art from Purely Katie! This would be great with the Lightsaber lights I shared above!
This printable Star Wars quote from A Bubbly Life comes in three different color options and would be adorable in any little one’s Star Wars nursery. Or use this other sweet Star Wars printable also available in a few color options.
Unique Star Wars Crafts
My favorite Star Wars craft on this list is the Wall-Mounted DIY Star Wars Wampa Head from Our Nerd Home. My mom was an amazing Wampa during a recent Star Wars Halloween party and this craft would make the perfect silly Christmas gift for her.
My second favorite Star Wars project is this DIY AT-AT bed, it is awesome and I’d love a king size bed version. And guess what? You don’t even have to make it! Etsy has an Imperial Walker bed listed! I doubt I could persuade Peter to install that in our bedroom but I bet I could get away with these Star Wars Light Switches from Sisters, What!
A few more misc Star Wars craft ideas include Star Wars Stitch Craft from Mom Endeavors, Star Wars Mason Jars from Club Chica, a Star Wars Planet Mobile from Mad in Crafts and an R2-D2 Pencil Holder from Crafts by Amanda!
