Moon Phases Wall Hanging DIY

I’m in love with moon phases wall decor. At the moment you can find them all over Instagram, Pinterest and anywhere else on the Internet. I love how they can update the look of a room. Most of them are made out of clay, marble or metal. There’s plenty of premade hanging moon cycle banners online that you can buy which all look super gorgeous but some are quiet pricey too. I must admit, I’m not ready to pay a lot of cash for something that I can easily DIY at home. So I created a moon phases wall art DIY and I think it turned out pretty good! What do you think?

You can make an easy DIY moon phases wall garland for less than 1€ (1 Dollar) and you probably have all the materials already at home! This tutorial will take you only 30 minutes to do too. Let’s get started!

Moon Phases Wall Hanging Decor

You will need the following materials:

  • Paper/Cardboard
  • Compass
  • Pencil
  • Copper acrylic paint
  • Brown or Black Wool/String
  • Scissors
  • Tape

Use some white paper that is a little heavier than regular paper. Actually mine was the side of a cereal box. Draw 7 circles in the size of your liking with the compass on the paper.

Mark the different moon phases with a pencil on the circles and cut them out.

Paint them in whatever color you like. I used some copper acrylic paint that I also used to paint this planter. I think they would also look stunning in gold, silver or even marbled.

Use a string of wool in a length that you like on which you attach the moon phases with some regular tape on the backside. And that’s basically it! You just made your very own hanging moon phases wall decor. Now all there is left to do is to find the perfect spot to let it shine.

How to attach Moon Phases Wall Hanging to a wall

One of the best parts about this DIY? You can use just a piece of tape to attach it to any wall. It’s not heavy at all so the tape will stick just fine and carry the weight of your brand new wall art. It’s a No-Damage Renter-Friendly way to display your brand new moon phases wall hanging decor. I think it would also be a perfect dorm room decorating idea!

While trying to find the perfect spot for my new wall decor I also placed it above our bed which I think is a cool spot. But since it’s so easy to redecorate I’ll probably move it around quiet a bit.
