I originally made this project for Spoonful. Spoonful has since closed and the instructions were taken down. I am putting the instructions here until such time that Spoonful projects are redirected to a new home. At that time I will remove the instructions and link directly to the project on their site.

Galaxy Constellation Father’s Day Card

What you need:

  • Black card stock, poster board or construction paper
  • Paint: white, bright blue, lavender
  • White paint pen
  • Tools: Old toothbrush (for crafting only!), paintbrush, toothpick

What you do:

  1. Fold paper into a card. Use a paintbrush to splatter paint onto the front of the card. Do this by dipping the toothbrush bristles into the paint then dabbing off the excess onto a paper towel.
  2. Test first by holding the bristles over the paper and running your finger across the bristles. Do this with blue, then purple and finally with white.
  3. Keep splattering until your are happy with how your galaxy looks!
  4. Use the handle end of a paintbrush (this is best for larger paper like construction paper) or a toothpick to add the constellation. Just create a "connect the dot" for the word "DAD".
  5. Use a white paint pen to connect the dots. Finally, add more stars with the handle end of your paintbrush or your toothpick.
