National Moon Day commemorates the day when man first walked on the moon, back in 1969. Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin captured the imagination of the entire world with their journey, but the moon has always inspired artists and crafters to create beautiful works. Check out this fantastic collection of moon inspired crafting, and maybe create something of your own!

If you believe that no craft is complete without glitter, you are certainly a Craftster after member Knickertwist’s heart. Her lovely shrines always contain a bit of sparkle, and often the man in the moon makes an appearance too, as he does in this Little Moon Shrine.

Any quilter will be sorely tempted to try their hands at the Moonglow Quilt created by cyndiq in rich shades of purple, blue, turquoise & teal. The use of black backgrounds truly helps the colors glow in this stunning quilt.
I’m always astounded by the work of our papercrafters, especially at their ability to create art in small spaces like ATC’s, inchies and twinchies. Mountains and Clouds used acrylics and mediums to create a beautiful series of dimensional Moon ATC’s.
MissingWillow embroidered an homage to moon in her beautiful Phases of the Moon Scarf. The warm wool is sure to keep you cozy on winter nights spent observing the heavens.
If you’re looking to add a touch of boho aesthetic to your home, try your hand at creating a dreamcatcher. Mistress Jennie’s Crescent Moon Dreamcatcher uses metallic embroidery thread, yarn, ribbon, and other fibers for lots of texture.
Beethoven was inspired by the moon to write his immortal Moonlight Sonata… which in turn inspired artist Chr1stChan to create his gorgeous painting.

Special thanks to Mistress Jennie for an out of this world blog post!
