D-O door hanger: getting ready

For a simplified activity for a young Star Wars fan, simply print the D-O door hanger template. (The thicker the paper, the better!) Use markers or crayons to make D-O’s design or design your own, write your name, and cut out the door hanger. D-O is ready to roll.

Get Started!

D-O door hanger: cut cardboard

Step 1: Begin by printing the D-O template and cut it out in one piece. (The Aurebesh text reads “No Thank You.”)

Step 2: Next, trace the cut-out template on the piece of cardboard. Cut it out.

Step 3: Cut the original template again, cutting out the large circle for D-O’s body and his head. Save all pieces!

Step 4: Trace the large circle and D-O’s head on the white construction paper and cut them out.

Step 5: Cut the “nose” from D-O’s head template and trace it on the green paper. Cut it out.

Step 6: Cut a small circle from the green paper.

Step 7: Next, cut the small green circle into four quarters. Glue two of them in the bottom half of the white circle, spaced about an inch and a half apart.

Step 8: Cut a strip of black construction paper the same width and glue it between the two green shapes.

Step 9: Use the ruler and pencil to draw straight lines, evenly spaced apart, around the black strip.

Step 10: Next, glue the green nose to D-O’s head. Cut a small strip of black paper and glue it parallel to the top edge of the head.

Step 11: Trace the remaining piece of the template, the bottom, on the extra construction paper you picked out. Cut it out and glue it to the bottom edge of the cardboard.

D-O door hanger: Write your name above the “No Thank You”

Step 12: Cut the Aurebesh lettering from the same piece of the template and glue it to the bottom of the cardboard.

Step 13: Write your name above the “No Thank You” if you’d like!

Step 14: Use the black marker to color in the curved part of the cardboard for D-O’s “neck.”

Step 15: Glue the droid’s body to the middle of the cardboard, and his head on top.
