Make Your Own Desktop Porg! Easy Porg Crafts Inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi

We're a bit Porg-obsessed in this house. Everyone knows I'm a huge Star Wars fan, and after seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I fell in love with the furry Porgs of Ahch-to Island. I searched for some fun Porg crafts and Star Wars-inspired crafts online but couldn't find what I was looking for. So I came up with this easy paper Porg craft that anyone can make. You, too, can have your own office Porg!


Disclaimer: this is just a craft and I in no way own any rights to the Porgs (they're free to fly, you know) or anything Star Wars related. Please don't come after me with any copyright lawsuits or anything. It's just a paper craft, people!


You Will Need:

-white copy paper or construction paper (two 8.5"x 11" sheets)
-crayons, colored pencils or markers
-stapler
-scotch tape
-a love of Porgs

Directions:

1. Cut one sheet of paper into two strips, making one a little wider than the other for the Porg body.


2. Use a brown crayon or colored pencil to color an hourglass shape on the wider piece of white paper. There's no exact size to this- every Porg is different!


3. Color the thinner piece of white paper for the Porg's head.I experimented with this a bit- you can make it any shape you want but I opted for this, somewhat of a pear shape:


4. Roll the Porg's body shape into a cylinder and staple the bottom. You may need to trim any edges that stick out the back.


5. Before rolling the Porg's head, draw big eyes, nostrils and that cute lil' frown. I looked at a picture of a Porg online to get that face right. It wasn't hard! I added some orange crayon coloring around the eyes, too. 


6. Roll your Porg head and staple it together just like you did for the body. Then staple the Porg head to the Porg body.


7. Draw some basic feet and wings for the Porg with your remaining paper. I held the paper up to my Porg to see how big I wanted the feet to be.


8. Color them orange.  Oh, I also left a little flap of paper on the feet so I could tape them to the body easily. If you don't do this, you can also tape each foot on separately.



9. Color your wings brown and cut them out. I opted to tape the wings on, too, but you can also staple them.


10. I decided to darken my Porg's face with a sharpie after I was finished. I think it helped him come to life!



Now say, 'Welcome to the world, Porg!' because you have your very own desktop Porg mascot now! Everyone in school is going to want one, or everyone in your office. Porgs are happiest in numbers, so make one for all of your friends!
