DIY Phases of the Moon Windchime

If you love boho decor and have a little time on your hands, this is seriously one of the easiest DIYs.It’s made out of salt dough, which is literally just a cup of salt, a cup of flour, and a half cup of water. Knead it all together, roll it out, and use either a circular cookie cutter or the top of a cup to cut out your moon shapes (there should be 7 total)!

Poke holes through the top and bottom of each shape before laying them out on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake at 200 degrees for about 2-3 hours or until they are dry.

Feel free to experiment and paint your moons however you like! I stuck with plain white, but some other ideas include layering gold foil, using metallic or glitter paint, or creating a marbled effect.

String your moons together and voila! A little homebaked charm for your happy hippie home.

Note: the holes in my moons were small enough that the moons stayed in place– if you are using different variations of string or made larger holes so that the moons shift around, simply tie a knot behind each hole or use a small drop of hot glue to keep the moons in place.
