How to Make a Constellation Canvas Trio

Bring the night sky inside with this Constellation Canvas Trio! Use paint and rhinestones to make the Hercules, Leo and Orion constellations sparkle in your home or office during anytime of the day.
  • 1 Paint the canvases

    Paint the canvases with both of the blue paints. Use a paper towel to blot the canvases to create depth. Thin the cream paint with water and splatter it onto the canvases. Let dry.

  • 2 Add the constellation templates to canvases

    Trace the templates of the constellations onto the canvases. Use a white paint pen and a straight edge to draw them onto the canvases.

  • 3 Add stars to the canvases

    Heat up the Hot-Fix applicator and affix the rhinestones for the stars.

  • 4 Add the constellation names to the canvases

    Write the name of the constellation in the bottom right hand corner with the paint pen.
