DIY: Easy Moon Garland Room Decor

Hey cupcakes! My dorm room was in some drastic need of some new decor, so a few weeks ago I did some researching on Pinterest for some new decor inspiration. I came across an image of a phases of the moon garland, and thought it would be super fun to DIY! :) I think it turned out really cute, so I wanted to share with you all how I made it today!


What You Need:
-Paper (either white or colored)
-Circle stencil
-Scissors
-Paint/colored pencils
-String/thread
-Needle or hole punch
-Tape (or any way to hang on wall)

What To Do:
1. Trace all of your moon phases. I found it easiest to make 9 full circles and then trim from there to make the phases as equal as possible.

2. If your paper is white, paint your moons! :) I personally used black and purple watercolor pencils, which allowed me to get a gorgeous marble effect. 
3. After the moons are dry, either sew them into a garland or punch holes into them to turn into a garland (I personally found it easiest to use a needle and thread to turn my moons into a garland). 
4. Attach the ends of the string to a "star".
5. Hang on the wall! :D Add any finishing touches (I added the quote "Never stop looking up" to my full moon) and enjoy! 

There are so many variations of this craft, so if you still need some inspiration I would recommend checking out Pinterest! :) Would you make this moon garland craft? Comment below and don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake to never miss a post!
