Constellation and galaxy decor is a popular idea today and is not only used for everyday decoration, but also incorporated into various Christmas decorations. As we all prepare for Halloween, it’s time to check out some galaxy-themed pumpkins. Here are some tutorials for constellations, carved or just decorated.
Carved and drilled pumpkins
A pumpkin constellation is a chic and unusually sophisticated decoration for Halloween. This tutorial shows you how to drill a pumpkin and give it a constellation pattern: you can watch a short video for more details on it. After the painted lines dry, put a coat of Mod Podge mother-of-pearl spray sealer on to give the pumpkins a slight shimmer and voila!
Here is another constellation pumpkin drilled, and you can use a number of strings of lights in the pumpkin, with some being pushed into the holes actually drilled. This looks really beautiful and helps highlight the different constellations when dusk falls or when you keep the pumpkin indoors in a dimly lit room. However, don’t worry if this seems either too messy or too fiddly – when it’s really dark the pumpkin will glow everywhere and all the stars will appear.
Bring a little bit of night sky to our pumpkin exhibition this year and make some drilled pumpkins with constellations! You can make a couple of smaller pumpkins with different constellations on them, or find a large pumpkin and make a couple of constellations on one pumpkin. Paint them black and mark the constellations with orange for a contrast and a cool look.
Not all jack-o-lanterns are created equal, as evidenced by this carved constellation masterpiece. With a little cunning ambition, a pumpkin, keyhole saw, and a few other things, you can do it yourself! The pumpkin is large and has many constellations at once, or you can opt for a large masterpiece and make smaller pumpkins with different constellations. Have fun carving!
Here’s another pumpkin drill that doesn’t require a pumpkin painting – just a Scorpio constellation. You can try different constellations that you like and not only use a real pumpkin like this one, but also an artificial one. Put in some small tea lights as they are wide, flat, and light to get a couple into the base of the pumpkins at a time.
This oh-so-simple geometric design adds a modern twist to the classic Halloween jack-o’-lantern. This drilled pumpkin sparkles and shines thanks to a pop of color and your favorite constellation pattern. Creating the perfect drilled pumpkin design has never been easier. With a drill bit, a constellation expression, and some candles, you can enjoy a beautiful constellation design.
This tutorial will show you how to make a real galaxy gourd! The project involves a lot of painting and covering the pumpkin with brightly colored glitter to mimic a galaxy and then drilling it. Make sure you are using the correct lighting so your pumpkin doesn’t get too hot. Try LEDs for smaller pumpkins.
Here is a simple tutorial on drilling pumpkins to create a constellation with lights inside. The pumpkin itself is black and the accents are orange, it’s a chic and sophisticated black and orange piece for Halloween.
Don’t carve pumpkins
This constellation gourd is even simpler: it doesn’t require carving or drilling at all. This is a black pumpkin decorated with white pearls of two sizes and white colors – nothing difficult. Just draw your constellation and cover it with white paint marking the stars with white pearls of various sizes.
IKEA is famous for its timeless and simple designs that fit almost any space, from modern to industrial. Such furniture is ideal but it seems too plain so it is great to hack and there are lots of ideas and home improvement to do it. Today we're taking a look at IKEA Lack's shelves and ways to best hack them.
IKEA Lack shelves are fairly thick wall shelves that come in a variety of sizes, configurations, and black and white. The most obvious idea for them is to use lacquer shelves for storage - they can be put anywhere, in any look and any size. However, we will not delve into such simple solutions. Let's take a look at some more interesting options you might choose. First of all, you can create interesting and eye-catching shelves in which lacquer shelves are connected to each other. Second, you can completely reuse the shelves and turn them into a cool vanity, bedside table, desk, and even a scratching post.
Many homeowners have a home bar, and you can make them stylish and chic with the shelves from IKEA Lack. Fix several lacquer shelves on the wall, add lights or holders for glasses to the shelves. Go for decanters, shakers, glasses, and other necessary items. Such a fancy floating bar is a great idea for any room, but especially a small one as it literally doesn't take up any space at all! If you want, you can turn the lower part into a bar countertop and add some stools of your choice.
IKEA lacquer shelves are ideal for making cat furnishings: create a ladder or scratching post of your choice for your kittens. It can be a ladder to help them reach a windowsill or furniture, it can be a ladder with a sleeping zone, a fun scratching post to jump into, and so on. Pamper your pets with it!
Missing shelves are great for building something floating, and vanities are part of it. Create a comfy floating vanity top with IKEA lacquer shelves, add a mirror above or on the wall, and pop in some baskets, boxes or drawers for storage. If you have a small space or don't want to take up a lot of space with your vanity, this is an ideal option.
Create a floating desk and matching shelves with IKEA Lack shelves - vary the size and appearance according to your requirements and the space you have. It could be an entire home office corner with everything floating in it, or just a tiny desk that your child can paint and draw on. Color and paint the pieces as you like and enjoy the comfortable and modern space!
IKEA lacquer shelving is best for making shelves and clusters. You can choose different looks, colors and configurations, e.g. B. create a tree-shaped unit. Missing shelves are great for installation in walls and for use in awkward corners for storage. Build lacquer shelves in interesting shapes in order to adapt them perfectly to the room and its decor theme. You can even cut them into triangles to fit really small corners and use them for storage. Use them anywhere from kitchens to bathrooms and for everything from potted plants to displaying art.
If you have a small bedroom and literally don't have room for a bedside table, grab the IKEA lacquer shelves and clip them to the wall to form a bedside table. Such a small floating piece holds the most important things but doesn't take up space, even if your bed is almost next to the wall, it's fine. Cool!
