Free Nerdy Printables! In Our Home Printables!
I have shared many Star Wars crafts, the Star Wars Coffee Printables I shared a few months ago are a feature in my kitchen, and my Kitchen Aid even received a Star Wars Make over. My good friend mentioned that she wanted to do a Star Wars theme in her children’s bathroom, so I jumped on the chance to create some fun Star Wars bathroom Printables!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I am a HUGE Star Wars fan… I mean HUGE, like I would decorate my entire house in a Star Wars theme if my husband would let me. But, of course, he reminds me that we are adults, not kids, and need to show some restraint. I opted for some vintage farm prints for my dinning area, but I am in the middle of building a coffee bar and was bound and determined to get something Star Wars in my kitchen. I can’t wait to show you the finished project, but I am not completely done with the bar, so it won’t be until next week. But, I am excited and impatient, so I am sharing some of the Star Wars printables that I have come up with.
I mean, how stinking’ awesome are these? Storm Troopers, Darth Vader, Yoda, Admiral Ackbar… and of course, my all time favorite, Bobba Fett! So, be sure to grab some of these awesome free Star Wars Printables to hang in your coffee area!
To download, right click and save them to your desktop. Each Star Wars Printable is sized for an 8×10 frame.
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you know that I am a HUGE Superhero fan! From my Wall of Awesome in my office, to my collection of T-shirts, they are just a part of my life! With all of my decor and shirts, I decided that I wanted to give a plain pair of shoes and give them a Superhero flair!
You can use almost anything to make them, and any character you love. I used napkins to create these shoes, but you can use things like wrapping paper or even images printed off the Internet. Or, if you can stomach the thought of it, you can even use actual comic books. I could not bring myself to cut up any of my comic books, so this was the next best option.
I already have a few other characters that I have in mind for my next pair. With canvas shoes only around $5 a pair, I can fill my closet up with Super Hero awesomeness! Plus, I have yet to come across a cool pair of Comic book inspired shoes, so why not just make my own!
Learn how I made them in the video below!
I love anything and everything when it comes to vintage games. I have done some perler bead projects in the past, but wanted to go BIG! So that is exactly what I did with this DIY 8 Bit Wall Art!
It started off simple, I seen the trailer for the new Pixels movie coming out and had decided on doing Blinky the ghost from Pac-man… and then it just kind of escalated from there. I had small 1/2 -inch blocks and larger 1 inch blocks so I decided to also do one of my all time favorite characters, Bobba Fett, in the larger blocks (I am a bit of a Star Wars fan)! I ran out of smaller blocks, but ordered more so that I can make all of the Pac-man characters to hang above my door in my office.
He looks great hanging under my DIY Donkey Kong shelves! Hubby has already stated that once his office is completed he will be stealing him from me. I won’t let that happen though, he is all mine! The kids are even going to be making some of there own for their room remodels and I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
I ordered the blocks online in bulk, and was surprisingly cheap! Plus, they arrived pretty fast, so I could get crafting! There is nothing worse than wanting to make something and then have to wait for supplies, but thankfully I only had to wait about 3 days.
Wood Glue (I like Gorilla Glue)
Hanger for the back ( I used Sawtooth mounts that I found at my local hardware store)
Since I did not have a template to use, I have created a few of my favorite characters so that you can use them!
I am a bit of a Star Wars fan… okay I am a BIG Star Wars fan! This past week we have been watching the entire Star Wars Saga because our kiddos have never seen the movies. I am happy to say that they love the movies as much as Hubby and I do! So, because I can’t deck out my entire kitchen in Star Wars, I decided to do a Star Wars Themed Kitchen Aid Mixer!
It is not perfect, but I absolutely LOVE IT! If you do not have a cutting machine like a Silhouette, you can always check out Ebay for small decals as well! If you do have a machine, I just goggled Star Wars Silhouttes to find what I wanted and transferred the images to my software to cut.
My Kitchen Aid has seen some better days, it does get a work out after all. It is actually the only appliance that I keep out on my counter top all the time. My other kitchen appliances only get pulled out from the deep dark caverns of the cabinets when I need them and then right back they go when I am done using them. So, the first step in making this Star Wars Themed Kitchen Aid Mixer is to make sure you mixer is clean! Scrub it down to make sure there are no oils or crumbs to be found.
I then mapped out where I wanted my decals to be and measured the areas so I knew what sizes I needed to cut. I did this before deciding on what I was actually going to put on the mixer, so things changed a little.
I decided to put Bobba Fett as the main decal because he is one of our favorite characters from the movie. Before I cut anything though, I printed everything in the sizes I measured to make sure they would fit.
Then, it was time to cut and weed. You will notice a blank area on one side of my mixer, that is because I wanted to put R2D2 there, but ummm…. He is not an easy thing to weed with all of the details and such a small size. I plan on going back in and putting C3PO there when I get more black vinyl.
After I was happy with the vinyl cut outs, I placed them on my mixer. There are a few bubbles in Bobba Fetts helmet, but I am okay with that. If there are an excessive amount of bubbles you can smooth them out with a burnishing tool.
For the quotes I downloaded a font from DaFont.com called Star Jedi. They are actually one of my favorite parts of this project.
As you can see, I am fond of the Dark Side of the Force, Darth Vader really does get a bad rap. But, I had to include the X Wing in because it is a pretty awesome ship!
Of course, my mixer was not the only thing that got a make over. I had to give my crock pot a taste of the dark side too!
These DIY Mario Shelves are the perfect nerdy craft for that geek or gamer in your life!
If you have been around for a while, chances are you already know that I am a big nerd. I love classic video games and comic books and have started to slowly transform my boring old office into a geek and gamer paradise. It is still my office and still functional, but I figure if I have to be stuck in here most of the day, I might as well have fun things that I love around me.
It all started with this Goomba… I found him and knew he had to be mine! My Donkey Kong shelves that I made a few weeks ago where already full, so I figured I would make him a new home where he felt comfortable!
So, of course I needed to bring in Mario and Princess Peach to keep him company! These shelves were really inexpensive to make, since I already had the paint on hand all I needed to do was figure out what to build them out of.
I chose to use cardboard boxes that I found at my local craft store, they were cheap and the prefect square shape for this nerdy craft! Check out the video below for a full list of items and to see how I made them!
Here is a copy of the Question mark you will need for this project! Just make sure to adjust the size to your boxes!
