Disney Craft: Star Wars Hair Clips or Shoe Toppers

by Crafty Staci on May 8, 2014

When two things I love got together, Disney and Star Wars, I was overjoyed. There had been a connection for a long time, but now Leia is officially a Disney princess and all is right with the world. If you're like me and want to wear your Star Wars/Disney affection for all to see, these little felt cuties are just for you. With the simple loop on the back, they can be worn on a hair clip or a shoe lace, perfect for Star Wars Weekends.

To make these Star Wars hair clips or shoe toppers, you'll need this pattern, felt, glue and ribbon. Craft floss is optional. Cut around the outside edge of each shape. I like to print a second copy and color each character in for reference as I make them. Plus, it's always fun to color.

For this tutorial, I'm going to demonstrate using Princess Leia. I went with dark brown for her hair and a flesh color for her face. Cut a felt shape using her entire head. I used the dark brown to match her hair.

Cut apart the pattern into the individual pieces you'll need. I could have left all her hair together, but I wanted a little gap to create her center part.  Cut out each piece from the appropriate color of felt.

Draw her eyes on with a permanent marker, using the pattern as a guide for placement.

Cut a 1" piece of ribbon. Run a bead of glue across each end and glue in place on the back of the first piece of felt as shown. The glue should run horizontally so there's a gap in the middle.

After the glue has dried, turn the piece right side up. Glue the front pieces on top.

For a couple of the characters with a little finer detail, like Chewbacca's eyes and eyebrows and the top line on the Stormtrooper, I used some craft floss and stitched those on. A pen will work on these areas, you'll just need to use a light touch.

To use these as hair clips, simply slip a clip into the ribbon loop on the back.

You could also slide them onto a plastic headband, and wear several at once.

To wear them on your shoes, just slide them onto the shoelace before lacing them up.
