BB-8 Star Wars Craft For Kids

Fans of Star Wars’ BB-8 will love this fun craft! Felt and paper plates are all you need.

What You Will Need 

  • 2 paper plates 
  • 2 sheets of white felt
  • Black felt
  • Grey felt 
  • Orange felt 
  • Scissors 
  • Glue


  1. To make this craft, I cut out all the small details first, then glued BB8 together after.

  2. White felt was first used to cover a paper plate.

  3. Then cut half a paper plate for BB-8’s head and stick white felt to it. Using my scissors, I cut around the plates to make them neat.

  4. My next step was to stick a gray felt strip to the top of BB-8’s head

  5. Under the grey strip, I attached six orange felt squares.

  6. I added a black big circle and a white small circle for his eye.

  7. Then add two orange strips to each side of the eye and another black circle.

  8. Then we will move on to the body. I attached three orange strip circles to the body.

  9. I then added small grey lines to the body using circle shapes.

  10. Then I added some gray felt to the orange circles as a last-minute addition.

  11. You have now made your own BB-8!
