The most popular post this year has been our 2nd Star Wars Banner post. It is really nice to get such positive feedback on the pieces we do! 🙂 THANKS GUYS!! So I am thinking it would be a good idea to post the patterns for the last of the 3 banners we have made so far… while you still have time to make it for the big party. You ARE throwing a May the Fourth be with You Party, right?
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 🙂
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.
Forget the balloons at the mailbox! A Star Wars Party deserves some truly special outdoor decorations. So for last year’s May the Fourth be with You Party, Jedi Master Heidi made these banners (and banner stands) for the front entrance of our house. They looked very festive, AND they served as a subtle warning to our neighbors that the Geeks were about to take over the cul-du-sac once again.
After several years of not being able to “stay on target ” as it were, Jedi Master Heidi decided we needed a sign that listed the activities of our May the Fourth be with You Party. Not that we have THAT many activities, but we are always so busy eating that we forget to make lightsabers… or take a group photo. So to keep us organized, she made these (re-useable) chalkboard signs that R 2 cute…
“NO FAIR!” My daughter was really jealous when her little brother got a set of Pottery Barn Star Wars sheets for his birthday a while back. So we started looking for a set for her too. She has a pink and green room, and we were hoping to get something that would at least sort of match. After hours of searching online, we came up with….nothing. I guess I was not really expecting anyone to sell pink Star Wars sheets, but I was really hoping for something gender-neutral like green, off-white or grey, but alas, nothing.
