These is something about the moon that brings out the whimsical side of just about anyone. The same can be said about moon-themed DIY projects. If you agree and you think that your life is lacking some lunar craft ideas, we give you this ever-so-fantastic list. Enjoy and happy moon crafting!
1. Moon Phases Necklace
This DIY moon necklace is made of shrinky dink plastic. To make this beautiful necklace, you will need photos of the phases of the moon. Print them onto the shrinky dink plastic sheet, cut the circles, and then punch holes on two sides of each moon. Bake by following the sheet instructions and then assemble using jump rings and a chain.
2. Moon Backdrop
How pretty! This lunar backdrop was made for a wedding but I think it can be an all-year fixture for any backyard. This gorgeous DIY project involves a giant plywood circle. A quarter of an inch thick type should work. For the paint, a combination of blues and grays should do beautifully. For the crescent texture, wine works, wooden dowels, and marshmallows (yes, yes you read that right), were used.
3. Moon Magnets
How gorgeous do the gold and black look together? For those who don't like the attention that metallic items get, you can do a black and gray version of this moon DIY. As for materials, this fun craft project requires air dry clay, cookie cutters in square and circle, magnets, and E6000 glue.
4. Marbled Moon Phase Mobile
This beautiful moon-themed DIY is perfect for those who like minimalist décor. Just like the magnet idea, you will need clay for making the moon phases. You will be marbling two clay colors and forming them to moon phase shapes. Paint the edges with metallic color and add holes. Bake and then assemble into a lovely wall hanging using dowels and string.
5. Moon and Stars Coasters
These are goshdarn adorable. The best part? They're very easy to make. You will need round wooden shapes from the craft store and some paint. For the moon coasters, you can use a combination of white, black, and gray paints. Layer them and scumble to get a nice texture. You can also use a sponge for a more moon-like look. Add glitter if you like.
6. Crescent Moon Necklace
Want something a little flashier compared to the first moon necklace featured here? Look no further because this glittery crescent necklace is just perfect for you. This is made of shrinky dink plastic as well. Once the plastic is dry and nice, paint with gold glitter nail polish and then assemble into a nice necklace.
7. Moon Banner
This cute moon-themed wall décor is very easy to make and will add a touch of whimsy to any room. You can make it for a little girl's room but it should be quite perfect for your own space, too. To make something similar, you will need wooden circles, paints in black and gray, paint brush, drill, and thread or string.
I absolutely have no idea which of these to tackle first. Maybe the coasters and banner first since I still have to get myself some shrinky dink. How about you? Will you be doing some of these DIY moon projects?
