I feel utterly grateful to the DiyHub community for bringing out the creativity in me. As at last month, if anyone told me that I could make a moon out of cartoons and spray paint, I won't believe the person because I never tried.
The prompt for this month #moon got me really busy. I thought of many raw materials I could use to make a moon and I finally settled for some waste cartons.
The gathering of materials and completion of this project took me one day and one night but I am extremely glad at the outcome.
For this beautiful project, you would need:
- Spray paint
- Flat plate
- Thumb tacks.
First, centralise the flat plate on an equi-sized carton and make a perfect circle with your pencil. Gently carve out the circle to get a full moon.
Next drop the same plate on another equi-sized carton and carefully carve out a half-moon. After the half-moon comes the heart shape. Gently carve out a heart shape on a different carton and your shapes are ready to be sprayed.
Second, I placed the shapes on a waste carton to prevent the spray from permanently staining my floor. From there, you spray the shapes to your heart content and leave to dry for about twenty minutes. You should consider using a gas mask because the spray has a strong and choking smell.
After spraying, I went in for the glitters. This was the most difficult part as I had to put the glitters one after the other on the edge of each shape. This alone took me about an hour. Soon enough, I was done and things were beginning to turn out well.
After adding the glitters, I had to make the droppers. Making the droppers was easy and fun. I took a cardboard and cut it into tiny bits, added a thread in the centre and wrapped it round. Very beautiful indeed😌
After making the droppers, I added a ribbon to the top to aid the hanging of the shapes and then I moved onto the coupling of everything. Many ideas ran through my mind at this point. Should I make everything red? Should the droppers be in the middle, the left or the right? Eventually I settled for this…
What do you think?
With the coupling, I came to the end of my craft and it looks pretty much amazing to me. My camera isn't doing justice to it but it still looks very beautiful.
PS: it was yesterday that my resilience was really tested. They were a lot of trials and errors but eventually, I got something close to perfect 😇✨.
