How To Make A DIY Fairy Light Crescent Moon

This tutorial will help you in creating DIY Fairy Light Crescent Moon!

Living in the middle of the famous city in a rental apartment does come with its own aye and nay. Running to a grocery shop maybe just a few blocks away but it’s a pain for someone who grew up in a countryside catching fireflies and chasing butterflies. I remember the days I spent with my family in the summer nights staring at the sky and counting stars. After hitting that adulthood, living in a different country, far away from home, whenever I take a walk in the night, I used to look at the sky searching for moon only to find it hiding behind a building. Just a few steps and you’ll never be able to see the moon(or sky?). So, this DIY Fairy Light Moon was inspired by one of those beautiful family nights and to keep the moon right inside your home.

While I was browsing through Pinterest looking for a DIY to quench my starry sky thirst, I came across this Geo Moon Sculpture from Urban Outfitters. I was hooked. I never found any DIY, so I decided my make my own version. This doesn’t fulfill the beauty of the original moon, but I’m still happy every night that I’ve found a substitute.


 

Supplies:

Metal/Wire Clothing Hanger

Fairy Lights

Jewelry Pliers

A simple wire hanger that isn’t too thick to bend using Pliers will be good for this DIY. The hanger that I’ve used is a wire hanger covered in white plastic sort of material.

Open the end that is looped to the neck of the hanger using the Pliers. I used the Pliers I use for my jewelry creations and it worked fine. This step is a bit hard so be careful not to poke your fingers.

And, don’t cut off this curved end that you opened now since we’ll be using this in the later steps.

Then cut off the hook of the hanger as shown below. And, you can see I kept the curved end.

We are going to need the moon template to shape the wire.

So, I took a plate and traced the round shape and roughly drew a crescent moon shape on the paper. Once you have the shape that you want, go ahead and start bending the wire.

The DIY fairy light crescent moon is starting to take shape. 🙂

You can see below on the right-side that there are two ends.

In the second end, create a loop to close the crescent shape.

Now, hook the curved end inside the loop that you just created.  To do this, you might have to straighten up the curved end a little bit and once you pass it through the loop, bend it back again so they are snug onto each other.

Once the crescent moon ends have locked, it’s time to correct the shape and make it perfect… 😉

Try creasing out any bends if there are any. I used my bare hands to shape it up.
