My boys have a bedroom which is dominated by Star Wars.
When we moved into our new house, my mom bought the boys Star Wars comforters for their bed, so in their eyes, the rest of the room had to follow suit.
I told them I would try.
They turned to me and said, “Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.”
“I’m just worried you won’t like it.”
To which they said, “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”
OK, so maybe they didn’t say it in so many words.
They didn’t have to. They’re Jedis and I read their mind 🙂
For the art work above their bed, I used 6 IKEA frames, a printer, and some material.
Four of the frames are simply Lego Star Wars minifigures printed out.
We goggled their favorite characters and found pictures which would enlarge clearly. Each minifigure had their own space thanks to the picture divider included with the frame.
The other two frames have, “Jedi Alex,” and “Jedi Andrew,” made out of left over material from their window covering.
First, I wrapped the frame in burlap. Next I used the Star Wars font to print out their names on card stock. Next, I cut out the cardstock letters and placed them over some thin denim. I held each letter in place while I cut the denim around the letter. For the space inside the letters I glued different material on top of the denim.
Across from the beds are the chicken wire frames I shared last year.
The Lego minifigure containers sit next to the frames.
Here’s one more look at the art.
May the crafting force be with you!
