12 constellation projects, products, and pretties that bring the night sky inside

By on Apr 19th

Oh, how we love the starry skies popping up all over the place lately. In artwork, in home products, in themed BEDROOMS! There is nothing more relaxing than a serene reminder of the skies over our heads.

In an ideal world, we'd all have a skylight over our beds and fall asleep under the stars, but since that's not feasible let's see how else we can catch a few stars for ourselves.

We've got curtains, DIY projects, pillows, bed sheets, and even awesome night lights. Let's lay back, relax, and look at these stars…

OH! OH! We can reverse engineer these! Take one strong blind — or make one with some canvas duck — and wield some star-shaped die cut stencils on it in a random pattern. Marvel at your ingenuity.

Evita is Offbeat Home's local star-loving craftster. She brought us not only this AMAZING light-building tutorial but also a how-to on building a starry pelmet box to increase the efficiency of our windows.

I'd love to take those two projects and go all out with these additions in my bedroom:

This little constellation-shooting turtle puts you to sleep with his astronomical knowledge.

UGH BOOTIFUL!

We spy some more star-shaped stencils up in here.

Such a ridiculously room-changing arrangement: install a faux ceiling using foamcore, and you can also install your own starry night. Babies be DAMNED! This is a great idea for all ages.
