Glow in the dark Constellation Hoops

6 May

Glow in the dark constellation hoopsLooking for a unique way to dress up your walls?  These constellation hoops are a fun and easy way to dress up any space. Because the stars are small fusible webbing is a must which makes this project very low sew and super simple.

Choose constellations based on the season, a star sign of someone special or just what speaks to you. I have included some sketches of the most common constellations on the template. But as you can imagine the possibilities are endless.

Using glow in the dark felt makes lights out a stunning stargazing event.

You will need:

Scraps of Glo felt

8″ x 8″ Dark blue felt for hoop background here I used Ink

Yellow green thread.

Fusible Webbing

6″  Embroidery Hoop

Template at the end of post

*Matching Thread

Cut 8″ circle of felt and set aside.

Follow the directions for your fusible webbing and iron onto the back of your glow in the dark felt scrap.

To freehand start with a square cut out v shapes along the side using the corners as a guide. See the template for more info.

Lay out your choosen constellation on the circle. Move the stars around varying the sizes until you are happy with the placement.
