Moon Light DIY

Hello Everybody,
A little while ago my Mom bought me this round piece of cardboard (made for wall hangings) at Hobby Lobby. I didn't know what to make with it, so it ended up sitting on my desk for a few weeks.

Then when I looking at some light projects, it hit me. Turn the round piece of cardboard into a moon light!

So thats what I'll be showing you how to make today.

Before we begin I wanted to say if you can't find this cardboard circle at Hobby Lobby, you could always cut a circle out of foam-board to get the same affect.

Ok, lets get crafty!

Supplies
Round Piece of Cardboard or Foam-Board 
Drill or Awl
Black, Gray and White Paint
Lights
Paintbrush
Glitter (optional/not pictured)

Step 1: Using a drill or awl poke 10 holes (or how ever many holes you need for your lights) into your piece of cardboard or foam-board.

Before you move on to step 2 make sure your lights fit into the holes you made. 

Step 2: Paint your moon. I used a combination of black, gray and white paint. I also used a sponge to give the moon some texture and added a little bit of glitter for some sparkle.

Once your moon is completely dry, pop in your lights and your done! 

I love how this project turned out! Personally, I didn't hang my moon light on the wall but if you wanted too you could. All you would have to do is glue a picture hook to back.

So what do you think? Do you like this moon light?

  1. I love this. I'm pretty sure we could be crafting buddies... ;)

    Also, the fact that you painted the moon is amazing- When I first saw it, I thought you'd printed a picture of the moon.

    1. We could most definitely be crafting buddies (lol)!

      Aww, thanks so much. I spent a lot of time painting that moon. I ended up painting about three or four different layers.
