Today, we are doing a simpler version of the Lightsaber Hilt Napkin Rings. This easier version requires less time, less mess, and less sharp tools… but is just as much fun to make…maybe even more so. ‘Cuz who doesn’t enjoy doing crafts with paper towel rolls and Duct tape 🙂
DIY Lightsaber Hilt Napkin Rings (Part 1)
I have mentioned before that my mom (“M4P Mom”), regularly calls with ideas for the blog. Unfortunately, she has more ideas than we have time. What we really need are some Minions to keep up. (Where are Bob, Kevin, and Stewart when we need them?)
So we have to prioritize – and doing these Lightsaber Hilt Napkin Rings were a no-brainer. I think this is one of the coolest things we have done in a long time, here at May the Fourth Central.
There are 2 kinds of Star Wars dishes: dishes that are based on food featured in the movies (+ TV shows and books), and food that is inspired by Star Wars. Since there are only a handful of dishes actually featured in the Star Wars universe, here at M4P central we spend most of our time trying to be inspired. Good thing we have help! The Obi-Wan Cornobi dish is one do the funniest dishes we have had at our May the Fourth be with You Party, and it comes courtesy of M4P friend Linda.
Obi Two Kenobis (Perler Bead Coaster)
Today we have, not Wan, but Two Kenobis for y’all: The young-ish from Episode 2 and 3, and the mature Old Ben from Episode 4. I decided to make both since, Ewan McGregor is, well Ewan McGregor, and Alec Guinness is de Man. One should not have to choose.
New and Improved! Lightsaber 2.0 (DIY Foam Noodle Lightsabers)
For generations, the lightsaber has been know across the galaxies as the weapon of heroes. Elegant, swift, lightweight and very effective in the right hands. One could assume such a design would never be improved upon. However, with version 2.0 we have added an amazing new feature! Now you do not have to cry if it gets wet from a spilled Banta milk, or wipe off all that Tauntaun spit. It is perfectly safe if you plan on visiting Otoh Gunga. The new and improved Lightsaber 2.0 is waterproof and, it floats!
