Constellation Lamp DIY

IMG_7760

This project was something that we loved the idea of and had wanted to do for a while. Abby thought of the idea and I was smitten. Is there anything more beautiful than a sky full of stars or a pretty drawn map of constellations? This creative undertaking includes both and has only two easy steps!

Step 1. Paint your desired lampshade black (or simply purchase a black one!).  It is important to be as even and consistent with the paint as possible.  When finished, hold it up to a light and touch up any spots.

Step 2. Draw the stars! You could use your favorite constellations or just random stars, whatever you would like.

Let dry and then hang for a beautiful star-lit space in your home!  One alternate idea we had for this DIY was to use glow-in-the-dark paint for the stars.

Best of luck!
