Learn how to make your own out of this world moon light!
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!

  • How to make a decorative light. Moon Light Diy - Step 2
    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!

Hi Amber, You are exactly right! For this project, I used a set of 10 clear (battery powered) mini Christmas lights that had white wire.
