I made two versions of the dolls featuring galactic couples Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker and Princess Leia and Han Solo. Check ‘em out and make your own featuring your favorite famous smooch.
What you need:
- Acrylic paint
- Fine paint brush
- Hot glue gun
- Small button
- Leather cord
- Small brass hardware washer
- Fine black pen
For my Padmé and Anakin doll, I referenced a scene from Episode II in which the young lovers canoodle in a field on Naboo, reveling in their secret romance. Padmé is in a printed gold dress, and Anakin is sporting a simple brown Jedi robe.
Hot glue the knot to the top of the Padmé pin, swoop the twist around, and glue the leather ends to the pin’s side. Glue the decorative brass washer to the front side of the leather twist.
Take a small button, paint it brown, and paint a little brown on the top of Leia’s clothespin to match. Once dry, hot glue the button to edge of Leia’s “head,” creating the illusion of her iconic hair bun.
And that’s it! These adorkable knickknacks make the perfect gift for your boo this holiday. Happy Valentine’s Day!
