Pinspiration: DIY Moon Phase Wall Hanging

June 08, 2015 4 Comments

A couple of weeks ago, I ran into a tutorial on Pinterest for a DIY Marble Moon Phase Wall Hanging, and I thought it'd be a great addition to our little computer nook! I made this project with the "help" of my three-year-old daughter, so it took about an hour from start to finish, but we had fun and the total cost was under $10 since all I had to buy was the clay!

Supplies Needed:

2 packages of black polymer clay (I found at Michaels)

1 package of white polymer clay

Rolling Pin

Wax Paper

Cookie Cutters (I used a circle and square)

Toothpicks

String

I have included a link to the original tutorial below, but here are some tips and tricks that I learned from my experience: 

1. Work on wax paper to avoid staining your counter or work surface.

2. Blend the white and black clay little by little, testing it out as you go. If you over-blend it, you have to start over, but if you don't blend it enough to your liking, you can always give the clay a few more twists and re-roll it! 

3. Make sure you make the holes big enough so that you can loop the string you are using through it twice.

4. I initially tried to use clear, stretchy power cord but this did NOT work. I recommend just using string or thread. 

5. Instead of looping the string and knotting it on the backside, I looped it through twice, which let me play around with the spacing once everything was on the string. Once I was happy with the spacing (which is difficult to get right!), I added a small piece of tape to the back of each moon phase.

Oh, I feel ashamed. I got so angry when I saw your post that I didn’t even pay attention to the link at the end of the post. You can delete both comments if you please. I’m sorry.

Kylie, I’m sorry you felt that way. I gave credit to the original blog post in two different places in the post:

“I have included a link to the original tutorial below, but here are some tips and tricks that I learned from my experience”

“Link to tutorial by: Almost Makes Perfect. If you have some time, I highly recommend checking out the rest of her beautiful blog! So many good ideas!”

I provided a direct link to her blog, as mentioned in the middle of the post. I also didn’t include instructions, I just gave a few tips that I learned from my experience that weren’t in the original blog post. Sorry for the misunderstanding, and I hope you visit our blog and boutique again.

Are you kidding me? You just post it on here as if it was an original project. You admit that you got the idea from Pinterest but you don’t even put a link to the original post ( http://www.almostmakesperfect.com/2015/01/14/diy-marble-moon-phase-wall-hanging/ ). Seriously. What’s the point.

IDEA: Say “I found this project Link to the actual source, not pinterest and this is my result” (and omit the how-to part since it has already been explained).
