DIY CONSTELLATION CANVAS

Hey everyone!

I recently made this amazing constellation light canvas and I am beyond happy with how it turned out! 


I got the idea a very long time ago when I saw the light canvas below in a Martha Stewart magazine:


While I loved the idea, the original was a little too elegant for me. I thought that I would do something a little more edgy, and had the idea to make it a galaxy canvas. 

My procrastination got the best of me and I never got around to making it. This was probably the one and only time my procrastination worked in my favour, because one of my favourite YouTube channel's Thread Banger decided to do their own constellation version of the lighted canvas. My galaxy idea was great, but this was even better!

Instead of picking random constellations, I decided to put the constellations of my boyfriend's and my families. I have our parents, siblings, and of course our animals constellations on the canvas. I am really happy with how it turned out! Not only is it super cool looking, but it is a great source of subtle light in our apartment. 


This is a great time to get Christmas lights on sale! If you do decide to make this or your version of this, please tag me in your post on Instagram (@sarapysessions). I would love to see your work!

Happy new year everyone!
