Hellllooo and Happy Sunday, my friends! I’m going to show you how to make these West Elm inspired DIY lunar moon wall art. It’s a really easy project and shouldn’t take you more than 20 minutes to complete. Let me just say that this project wasn’t planned out much at all. I was going through my stuff prepping for a garage sale-getting rid of stuff that I don’t want to bring to my new apartment with me, when I came across these wooden circles. I remember buying them a long time ago, for what, I can’t remember. But I was going to put them in the garage sale, but then I had an idea! I could see make a DIY lunar phase wall art project with them! So, I made it on a whim and wanted to share it with you. I think it’s pretty cool and I have a feeling you’re going to dig-it, too.
I’m not sure where I’m going to put it when I move, but I’m sure we will find the perfect home for it in our new apartment! This DIY lunar phase wall art totally gives me of West Elm vibes.
After stenciling and cutting out your moons (you can do whatever gradient you want), you’re going to want to lightly sand the edges down.
I ended up staining mine in Minwax stain in dark walnut, but you can paint yours whatever color(s) you like! There’s so many things you can do to personalize this project. For example, drill holes in the top and hang them vertically with some twine, adhere them onto a wood plank or canvas, the options really are limitless. I just stuck them on the wall with some double-sided tape until I figure out what I want to do with them in the long run. I really would like to get something really big and more proportionate for the wall behind the couch because we have 9′ ceilings. You know whatever I decide to put there is more than likely going to be a DIY 😉
