10 Craft Ideas To Do With Darth Vader Coloring Pages
Darth Vader is one of the most famous Star Wars characters of all time.
Try this terrific list of paper crafts to make with those finished coloring pages.
1. Darth Vader Halloween Pumpkin
Darth Vader coloring pages are perfect if your youngster wants to make a Halloween pumpkin.
Several pages might be needed, depending on how ornate the child wants the pumpkin to be.
When the characters are colored and cut out, they can be attached with craft glue or Krazy glue to the pumpkin’s surface and sealed with a few coats of acrylic spray.
If you want it to be a jack-o’-lantern, just make sure to do the carving first and place the Darth Vader decals around it.
2. Make a Darth Vader Tea Light Holder
Use several coloring pages for this craft, and trim them to fit a piece of thin cardboard approximately 12 inches long and 6 inches high.
When they are glued to the cardboard, fold it into a square and glue or staple the edges together.
Make a base around the bottom with white or black tissue paper, using a rubber band to hold it fast.
Place a tiny electronic tea light inside, which can be found at any discount store, and enjoy the glow!
3. Darth Vader Paper Roll Craft
Make this easy craft by cutting down an empty paper towel cardboard to about two-thirds.
When Darth Vader is colored, he should be cut out with the head separated from the body. Laminate the cardboard with the body section using invisible glue.
The bottom of the head cutout should be glued to the top rim of the cardboard, and the youngster can embellish this paper figurine with glitter or craft gems.
It can even be made comical with wiggle eyes and a funny mouth.
4. Give Darth Vader His Own Planet
Your youngster might enjoy giving Darth Vader his own star on which to live.
This is easily accomplished by cutting out a large star from black construction paper and decorating it with white star stickers, white glitter, or silver and white confetti.
Darth Vader characters can be cut from several finished coloring pages, and one attached to each point of the star for an impressive decoration!
5. Make a Darth Vader Lightsaber
Start this easy craft by cutting out a long strip of cardboard and painting it a bright fluorescent color with craft paint. Red or pink are the best choices for this.
Next, cut approximately 6 inches off the end of wrapping paper cardboard and laminate it with the finished coloring pages.
This will serve as a perfect handle for the lightsaber!
6. Create a Unique Keyring Holder
Coloring pages featuring Darth Vader holding his saber are best for this craft.
Once the character is colored, it should be glued to cardstock or thin cardboard and cut out. The saber should be reinforced with a popsicle stick or craft stick.
Then, the entire ensemble should be glued to a square piece of corkboard or any rustic background, making sure the saber sticks out past the edge.
Now you have a great place to hang a key ring!
7. Make a Perfect Father’s Day Card
Use a Darth Vader coloring page to make the ideal Father’s Day card. Create a background with black construction paper and white or silver glitter.
Glue the Darth Vader cutout from the coloring page to one side, and fold the other side over to create the card.
All Star Wars fans remember that famous line, “Luke, I am your father.” Turn that line around for a comical touch, and write, “Dad! You are My Father,” on the front in silver puffy paint.
Happy Father’s Day can be written inside!
8. Make a Darth Vader Headboard
Children love to decorate their rooms, so why not the headboard of a bed?
To do this, have the youngster cut out two Darth Vader characters from the finished coloring pages, sealing them in contact paper.
Bright-colored pipe cleaners can be twisted around long craft sticks or knitting needles to create lightsabers.
These can be placed in an X in the middle of the headboard with non-damaging wall putty and the cutouts positioned on either side for a great decorative touch.
9. Darth Vader in Battle
If your child likes to draw freehand, this craft is perfect. Using a generous-sized piece of poster board, have the youngster draw a battle scene.
This can be left as is or embellished with other craft items to make it fancy.
When Darth Vader is colored and cut out, the youngster can place him at different places in the scene by attaching the cutout to a simple toothpick.
Once slits are cut into the poster, the youngster can push the toothpick through and reposition the character as many times as desired!
10. Make Fancy Space Shoes
Any youngster who has an old pair of Crocs will love this craft. First, use craft paint to change the color of the Crocs to black.
Next, glue on cutouts from the finished Darth Vader coloring pages. These can be trimmed to fit, or the characters can be cut out and used like decals.
Put a few coats of silver or white glitter over the surface with a thin layer of craft glue and seal it all with acrylic spray for a great pair of space shoes.
