For our celestial theme this July, we couldn’t help but create a few different moon and star crafts to hang up on the wall. Designed by Lindsay, this frosted paper celestial wall art was so fun for me to assemble. And it’s really easy too.
Simply cut out the template or SVG file below and layer the designs however you want to — then attach with glue, foam mount dots, or embroidery floss. With the gold hoops as your base, it will look like the stars are twinkling around your moon!
This celestial wall art would look pretty in a living room, bedroom, or kid’s room. If you’re putting it in a kid’s room, it might also be fun to create a campfire out of fabric or felt as well as our kid’s play tent. This way they can pretend they’re camping under the night sky. Otherwise, you can hang this up in another room and place our celestial lilies nearby.

Hello! I am so excited to make this gorgeous decor and I have all of my materials ready, but I’m starting out a bit lost. I don’t have a Cricut, so I’ll be cutting everything by hand. I went ahead and got Design Space so I could view the SVG file for it’s handy colors and counts. I downloaded the PDF so I could cut the templates, but the images on the PDF are too small and don’t match the sizes on the SVG templates. Is there any way to print the lines from the SVG from my normal printer so I can have correctly sized templates to cut? (I know the largest moon is larger than printer paper, but I can fudge it!) Sorry if these answers are obvious, I’m brand new to paper art!
Hello Thiel. When you print your PDF you will want to make sure the setting is at 100% rather than resizing to fit the page. This is a common issue for some printers. This should give you the correct size.
The shine “moss” paper is no longer available. Could you recommend an alternative?
Yes, we worked to replicate it in our frosted paper packs. Our version is conifer pack #4 https://feltpaperscissors.com/product-category/frosted-craft-paper/
Hello! I just became a member so I could make this with a Cricut for my daughter’s first birthday. I’m not seeing the SVG cut file with the colors and quantity, as you mention, but just the original?
Hi Jennifer! It was updated last week. When you upload it to Design Space you’ll be able to see the layout and colors!
I can’t find the new SVG complete SVG file including all the colored pieces shown in the project
Hi Susan, it’s there! Once you upload it to Design Space, you’ll see the layout and colors.
I finally figured it out!
I would love to know how many of each piece is needed to complete this entire project. I downloaded the svg file and cut it on my Maker but it does not cut all the pieces to make this as shown. I want to assemble all of the pieces so I can send them to my grandkids to put together.
It would be greatly appreciated if you can list the number of cuts needed per piece per color.
Thank you for any help you can give.
Hi Pam– I just added a new SVG cut file with the colors and quantity.
I love this frosted paper celestial wall art. I think it would look pretty hung from strings over my daughter’s bed.
Ooh yes, great idea!
