These constellation lacing cards are a fun way for kids to learn about a few popular constellations in the night sky AND make some art for their walls! You can also gift these cards to a friend who loves stargazing and spotting constellations.
Since we’ve designed a lot of cards over the years (thanks to our graphic designer, Lindsay!), we are now offering our members a variety of envelopes. Just scroll to the bottom of the post to download the size you need along with these constellation cards.

We give this DIY idea 5 stars!
This DIY project includes five major constellations: Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Orion, Cancer, and Taurus. All of the holes in the cards are marked for you. So you can simply use your embroidery needle and floss to create the outlines of each constellation. When you’re ready to create your constellation lacing cards, you can use our SVG file with your cutting machine or download and trim our printables on the right hand side at the top of this post.

Download our SVG file to cut this on your cutting machine (there will be two layers of cardstock for each constellation). Lace your gold embroidery thread through the holes, then secure ends of thread with a small piece of tape on the back. Put your finished pieces in picture frames, or tuck into an A7 envelope to send to a loved one (members can download our envelope templates below)! If you don’t have a cutting machine, use the PDF printables to create your constellation lacing cards.
