I created ornaments from Star Wars dolls and a leftover Halloween costume to create a fun and festive Star Wars Christmas tree.
This holiday season is all about Star Wars for our family. It started in September with my trip to Galaxy’s Edge, then our family Halloween costume. We’re currently watching The Mandalorian every Friday through November up until the release of Episode 9 just before Christmas. To prepare for Episode 9 – Rise of Skywalker Jesse and I have been watching all of the other Star Wars movies (which is so much easier with Disney+). Since my life is basically inundated with all of this Star Wars, I decided to put together a little Star Wars Christmas tree.
My Star Wars Christmas tree sits in our upstairs loft. I love having a tree there that overlooks the living room. Plus, we get a real tree for Christmas, so this let’s me have a tree to enjoy while I wait for our real tree. The tree is a small, skinny 5 footer, so it’s easy to set up and doesn’t require a ton of ornaments. I used some small shatter-proof ball ornaments and a few sparkly snowflakes (but let’s pretend they are stars) to decorate it.
The Star Wars “ornaments” are actually little plush dolls. My family bought them to use for a baby shower when I was pregnant with Mara. I believe they were from Hallmark. They were so easy to turn into Star Wars Christmas tree ornaments. I just pushed ornament hooks through the tops! Voila! Instant ornament! I love that there are dolls from the newest trilogy, as well as the original. There aren’t any from Episodes 1-3, unless you count C-3PO and R2-D2, but I have a Queen Amidala ornament that lives on our main tree each year.
I really wanted a fun topper for my Star Wars Christmas tree, so I decided to use one of the Stormtrooper masks from Halloween. I added the elf hat for good measure, plus it helps keep the lights tucked inside the mask. Mara thinks that the “Stormtrooper is so silly!” so I call that a win.
I had so much fun putting together this Star Wars Christmas tree! I also love that I put it together using things that I already had on hand. That seems to be a trend this year… May the Force be with you! And Happy Holidays!
