Next, use the small 4 cm. circle as a template to lightly draw circles and half-circles on the frame and the medium wood circle.

Using those circles as a guide, paint over them with orange paint.

Next, paint small trapezoid shapes within each light orange circle.

While the orange paint is drying, cut 1/4 off the bottom of the 4 cm. wood circle to make BB-8’s head.

Next, paint the gray designs in the orange circles on both the wooden frame and the medium wood circle. (You can use this photo as a design guide if you’re a stickler for accuracy.)

Allow all of the paint to dry completely.

Glue BB-8’s body to the bottom of the frame, but be sure to attach it high enough for the frame to stand properly. Attach BB-8’s head on top of the body. Your frame is complete!
