It’s time to take a trip to a galaxy far, far away. Don’t worry, you don’t have to hop in a space ship or even leave the house. This week, we’re taking a look at a huge trend in crafting – capturing the beauty of the outer reaches of the galaxy!
Lately, it seems that a ton of DIY projects and craft tutorials have featured deep purples and dark blues with contrasting white or yellow dots to depict planets and stars. You don’t have to be a “science nerd” or a “space geek” to rock this print, either. In fact, this trend is taking over and everyone from kids to celebrities can’t get enough.
You’re most likely to find craft projects for wearables such as purses, shoes, pants and t-shirts when it comes to galaxy prints. For many of these projects, you can upcycle an old plain item and create a brand new piece simply by using acrylic or fabric paint. The dark colors and splashes of light can be found in a variety of jewelry projects as well. If you like the look of these crafts but want to work with beads, consider creating a Moon and Stars Anklet. This way, you can take part in a trend while still using materials you have.
If you’re not interested in creating your own galaxy print accessories and clothes, consider creating your own candle holders or crayons. Think outside the box and use elements of this popular print in unexpected ways. It’s a great way to add an unexpected twist to an average DIY project. You can even make a Celestial Pen and Stand and add it to your desk. Hey, it beats an expensive trip to space camp.
