DIY Constellation Lighted Wall Art Video Tutorial from ThreadBanger.

ThreadBanger used an art canvas, a string of lights (you can use a battery pack or plugin cool lights that won’t start a fire), and paint to create this DIY Constellation Lighted Wall Art.

I like almost any Space DIY. You can check out my posts for Constellation DIYs here, Nebula DIYs here, and Galaxy DIYs here. What are the differences between a nebula and galaxy?

A nebula is a cloud of gas and dust located between stars and/or surrounding stars. A galaxy is a collection of stars, gas, and dust bound together by gravity. (source)

Embellished Velvet Constellations Evening Jacket, summer 1937

Designed by Elsa Schiaparelli

“Schiaparelli developed a lifelong interest in the heavens from her uncle, Giovanni Schiaparelli, a prominent astronomer.  Typically mining her childhood experiences as source material for her creative life, she used celestial iconography in several collections between 1935 and 1940.  In crafting this jacket, a collaboration with master embroiderers Albert and Marie-Louise Lesage, she designed her ultimate personal and artistic expression of the theme.  Surrounded by a midnight blue galaxy sprinkled with beadwork stardust, silver and gold planets, rhinestone crescent moons, swirling comets, and shooting stars, twelve glyphs representing the signs of the zodiac are embroidered in gold at center front.  Ursa Major, the constellation known as the Great Bear, or Big Dipper, which Schiaparelli adopted as her personal emblem in childhood, illuminates the left shoulder.”

I’m taking a little break from jewelry and I started making galaxy inspired wall art. This is acrylic paint on canvas and LED string lights, representing Gemini constellation. I still need a lot of practice (and figure out how to take good photos of LED lights) but you can expect more of these as soon as I get more materials and they’ll probably be for sale :)

Thoughts appreciated! :D
