I wasn't 100% sure if this goes here, and I hope it's ok because it's inspired by another tutorial.

This is my latest "As seen on Pinterest" craft. I've been thinking about new wall-art for some time now.

Overall it was pretty simple and easy. I used embroidery thread for Orion and borrowed my roommate's white paint marker for the stars. I used an awl and a needle threader to easily get the string through my poster board and tied what felt like a bajillion little knots.

The original uses staples for stars, but I prefer clean lines so I opted to just mimic the sky map with my paint pen for the background stars to get an idea of the "random" star patterns.

Here is a link to the original tutorial: http://www.designsponge.com/2011/01/diy-project-astrology-artwork.html

Thanks for looking. Smiley

That's really neat. I think I might do a small greeting card version for bdays.

Inspiration without application is moot.

I'm quite taken with this. Having a series of constellations laid out on a wall or across a room would look amazing. Very simple and effective piece of wall art.
