For die-hard Star Wars fans out there, it was likely a dream come true when the most recent movie came out, especially if there were Star Wars-themed parties involved. If you plan on throwing a party for the DVD/Blu-Ray release of The Last Jedi (or the 2019 Episode 9), you’ve got to make these Jedi water bottle covers we found on CraftsByAmanda.com.
Not only are these water bottle covers easy to make in bulk, but they are also perfect for Star Wars-related events. Whether you’ve been a fan for decades or your kids are huge fans now, this is an arts and crafts you’ll want to hold on to. Now, let’s get started on those Jedi water bottle covers!
Supplies and Materials
Directions for Jedi Covers for Water Bottles
- To begin, measure out some tan felt that is four inches tall and long enough to wrap around your water bottle, with about an inch of overlap. Once measured, cut out the tan felt.
- Fold your felt rectangle in half to make a square. With the fold on your left, cut off the top left-hand corner along the fold. Unfold the felt, and you should have a triangle along the top and at the center of the felt, creating the Jedi’s V-neck-type shirt.
- Measure and then cut a piece of felt that is five inches tall and roughly as long as the tan V-neck felt piece you just made.
- Fold one third of your brown felt piece onto itself, lining its folded edge along one of the tan felt’s sides. The third that is folded over must be wide enough to touch the far side of the tan felt (where the fold is) and reach the V-neck’s first edge. Now, trim the excess brown felt, leaving only the folded piece of felt. This will ensure the brown felt (the Jedi’s cloak) is slightly shorter in length than the tan felt.
- Measure then cut a ½-inch by 5-inch piece of dark brown felt, which will act as the belt/waistband, then glue the dark brown piece below the tan felt’s V-neck (use your judgment here based on your water bottle’s proportions).
- Glue your tan felt piece around your water bottle, with the V-neck facing upward.
- Position your water bottle, V-neck upward, laying down at the center of your brown felt piece. Now, wrap the brown felt around both sides of the water bottle and glue into place.
- If you decide to play around with these covers’ sizing, you could also apply them to juice boxes or soda cans if you prefer.
Enjoy your Jedi water bottle covers!
