You don’t have to be a Tatooine Jawa to find this droid – simply make your own at home!
Grab your droid tools and a fellow Jedi, because you’re going to make your very own R2-D2 in your own home. Snip and stick to see an ordinary piece of furniture transform into an R2-series astromech droid! (Brooks Propulsion rocket booster not included!)
- R2-D2 sized piece of furniture
- Paint (silver and dark blue)
- Masking tape
Print the template and cut out the R2-D2 bits and pieces.
Choose an item of furniture and paint the top quarter with silver paint and allow to dry
Paint strips of masking tape with your blue paint and allow to dry
Apply the blue masking tape leaving a collar of silver visible below the tape
Glue and add your droid pieces as space allows
You now have your own R2-D2 unit!
Paint a black R2-D2 outline onto a white wall if you don't have suitable furniture or maybe use a spare cardboard box
