“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”. Who’s counting down to the the last episode of Star Wars? I can’t wait, that’s why I turned my white baubles into a stormtrooper platoon. As you can see, I don’t have much drawing skills, but the bad Empire soldiers don’t have to be perfect. Contrary, they could not! A set of Stormtrooper Christmas baubles is also a great gift idea for any Star Wars fan, especially when facing the last episode.
Remember Yoda’s words: “Do. Or do not. There is no try”

Making of Stormtrooper Christmas baubles
If, like me, you are not a skilled draftsman, start by practicing stormtroopers on a sheet of paper. As a template I used the graphic found here.
The drawing is relatively simple, so after 2 repetitions I decided to try my hand at the bauble.
Drawing on a Christmas bauble turned out to be quite difficult. Fortunately, you can safely make a second attempt on the opposite side of the bauble. The second stormtrooper looked much better.
I drew in the following order:
- A thick headband on the Stormtrooper’s head
- Upper part of the head
- Sides by the eyes
- Smile 🙂
- Lateral parts of the head with diffuser bends
- Grille in place of mouth
- Side grilles
The Stormtrooper Christmas bauble is ready. Hang it on a Christmas tree or give it as a gift!

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
