September Craft

Create Your Own Constellation

  • To create your own constellation, you will need one piece of dark-colored card stock, a flashlight, a pencil, a rubber band, scissors, and a paperclip.
  • Begin by folding your card stock in half and cutting it into a semi-circle which will be a full circle when unfolded.
  • Next, place the front of the flashlight (the part where the light shines out) in the center of the card stock circle. Trace the edges. This will be the area where you will draw your constellation.
  • Now, draw a design inside the circle. You want something with a recognizable outline.
  • Place small dots on all corners/ angles within your design and one every 1/4 inch on straight lines.
  • Straighten the paperclip and use it to poke holes through the dots. Be sure to poke completely through.
  • Make five or six cuts in the card stock that begin at the edge of the large circle and end at the edge of the small circle.
  • Bend the cardstock over the edge of the flashlight aligning your constellation with the front of the flashlight so that when it is turned on, the light will flow through the holes you created.
  • Use the rubberband to secure it.
  • Turn off the lights. Turn on your flashlight and point it at a wall or the ceiling. Observe your constellation.
