DIY Lunar Garland


I could feel that I was getting bored of my workspace a little while ago, so I decided to make a garland to add some visual interest to my space again. I love the graphic look of the lunar cycle and so the good ol’ moon was the inspiration for this DIY.

You will need:

  • About 1-1,5 metres of string
  • White cardboard
  • Black paint
  • Brushes
  • Anything round the trace around
  • Little wooden pegs (or alternatively, tape)


First, draw out 8 circles on your piece of card, tracing around a round object to ensure uniformity. 
Next, cut them out and sketch the phases of the moon in with pencil.
Paint the appropriate areas black. 


Once dry, peg the moons onto the length of string. 


(If you want it to be in the correct lunar order, it is: new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, waning crescent)

Hang it up and admire your creation!

I love having mine in my workspace. It makes it interesting and fun.

Happy New Year, too!
