Equipment- Recovered cardboard or purchased in DIY stores (thickness approximately 1.5 mm) - A ruler and a compass - White, gray and silver crepe paper (you can also use scraps of gift paper or tissue paper if you have it) - A pair of scissors - Paper glue and a brush to apply it - Crepe tape - Gray or unbleached cord
Budget: less than 15 euros Duration: 3 hours
Steps1. Cut out the cardboard elements: the two faces of the moon, using the compass to obtain beautiful curves, and the side band 9 cm wide. This strip can be made in one piece or assembled from several pieces taped or stapled. Also cut out a small square of cardboard which will be used to secure your fixing string.
2. Assemble the elements using the crepe tape (kraft tape may also be suitable), taking care to pierce the upper part of a small hole to pass the string attached to a small piece of cardboard which will hold it well in place. Once the moon is assembled, secure the angles with adhesive tape.
3. Cut the crepe paper into 3.5 cm strips and use the scissors to cut them to 2.5 to 3 cm. Wrap them progressively on a piece of cardboard to prevent them from becoming tangled.
4. Glue the crepe paper strip by strip on your cardboard moon with the brush soaked in glue. For more naturalness, the strips should be glued with fringes at the bottom, so start with "the bottom" of the moon. Alternate white, silver and gray by varying the connection points so as not to form too regular stripes.
