Phases Of The Moon Mini Banner DIY

Hello Everyone,
Recently I bought a whole bunch of little wooden circles from the craft store. They were going to be used for another project but that project was a craft fail. So I began thinking of a new project where I could use these little circles.

At about that time I remembered a felt moon banner that I had saw on pinterest (which was super cool). I decided to change the felt moons to wood and gave the project a try. I loved the final results and decided to make it into a full diy :)

I shared this diy as a guest post on Crafts From A Ravenclaw and now I'm sharing it with you!

So Lets Get Crafty!

Supplies
9 Round Wooden Circles
Black Paint
Grey Paint
Paint Brush
Drill
Embroidery Thread
Scissors (not pictured)


Step 1: Drill two small holes on each side of your wooden circles.


Step 2: Then paint all of your wooden circles black.


Step 3: Once your circles are dry, go and google ''phases of the moon''. When you find a picture/chart that shows each moon phase, print it out. This will help you keep track of what each phase looks like.

Then begin painting each moon phase with your grey paint. I also added a little bit of grey glitter to give my moons some sparkle.


Step 4: When your moons are dry, you can then start connecting them together. To do that, just cut a small piece of embroidery thread and feed each end through the back of two of your wooden circles. Then tie a knot in the front. Keep repeating this step until all your moons are connected.

Once all your moons are connected, go and add some embroidery thread to the ''black''moons on each end of your banner. This will create the loops to hang your banner.

Then Your Done!

  2. I really like this. thanks for the idea. I think it would also be cool as a necklace or bracelet. you could make the moon phases out of polymer clay in a flat circle shape. then put holes through and string together. Maybe a small silver star as a charm. Lee
