About: hello people, i am hobbiest as well as architecture and designing student. i love to explore different materials. i work with wood, concrete, leather, paper, clay. i love painting and sculpture making.

Hello everyone, i am here with my new instructables! which is a lunar phases wall hanging. as we all know that moon have different phases everyday and found it very interesting and converted the moment into easy and low cost still beautiful wall hanging.a home decor charm that can be sized up, sized down, and customized to whatever space you intend it for, while always giving off that lovely lunar vibe. It’s perfect for back-to-school dorm decor or just adding an element of the cosmos to your pad. If you can’t hang the real moon on your walls, this is pretty much the next best thing. so let's get started......

Step 1: MATERIALS

  • Thin sheet metal
  • Chain
  • Jumprings
  • Metal hole punch
  • Cuttingpliers
  • Sandpaper
  • Long-Nose Pliers
  • Circular stencil
  • Gold beads
  • Wire
  • Marker

Step 2: LET'S MAKE IT

  • Using your circular stencil and a pen, draw out your moons. We made 5 moons, like the Phases of the Moon Necklace, but depending on how long or short you want your pendant to be, you could make 3 or 7 or 9!
  • Cut out the moons with the cutting pliers. It’s not easy to cut round shapes normally, and with a small tool and sheet metal, it can be especially tricky. Work slowly and use the sand paper to smooth out any jagged edges. I also used the sand paper to give the moons a slightly scuffed texture, but that is a personal touch that is up to you!
  • Now it’s time to put these moons together! Use the metal hole punch to make holes on either side of the width of the moon (you’ll want them to hang on their side, not up and down!)
  • Measure how much chain you want between the moons and cut 4 pieces of the same length. Cut 2 pieces for the top and bottom of the pendant, as well, of whatever length suits your pendant best. Use the long-nose pliers to attach the chain to the moons with jump rings.
  • Cut a length of wire and wrap around the bottom chain link, then hang down. String your beads up the wire and wrap the tail through and around the last bead to secure them! Cut another length of wire and string through the top chain link, then twist into a loop that you will use to hang the pendant from!
  • Hang up your pendant and enjoy the ethereal, magical effect it has on your home decor!

    Very nice! I like that you gave it texture instead of just leaving it smooth :)
