DIY Moon Mirror

Moon mirrors have become a trend lately on TikTok and around the internet. I love how easy this is to make and can make any room look great. Plus, it’s affordable and fun to make!

The crescent moon design is made out of sand and painted with acrylic paint creating a perfect aesthetic piece for your home. I’ve found this piece to be very unique, one of a kind and great for taking selfies with. Plus, a great conversational piece! If you don’t want to leave it plain, you can always add some more to it such as stones, crystals, glass mosaics and more to dress it up. Have fun and get creative!

A Few Notes 

  • This is a quick DIY and takes about 15-20 minutes in total to go through the process.
  • Spackling paste can be found in hardware stores.
  • I used an egg to create the crater because it’s something everyone has available, but really anything round like a marble or ball will do the trick!
  • I used a 12″ circular mirror, but you can use any size circular mirror you’d like. A variety of sizes look great collaged together! Feel free to get creative!

Supplies Needed

Spackling paste (300 ml or 10oz)
White sand (300 ml or 10 oz)
Tan acrylic paint (35 ml or 1 oz)
12″ circular mirror
Spatula
An egg (or round marble)
Cotton balls or sponge
Mirror hanging hardware

How to Make a Moon Mirror

Mix the spackling paste, the white sand, and the acrylic paint into a bowl and mix it until it blends well and becomes a paste.

Outline the moon on the left side of the mirror. With the spatula, spread the paste over the moon. You don’t have to be too careful here – remember the moon is super texturized, and you want the spackle to look perfectly imperfect.

Dip an egg (or anything round-shaped) into the spackle to create a crater. Use your finger to add texture to it.

With a cotton ball or sponge, stipple over the shape of the moon to add texture to it. Make sure to get the edges as well to create a blended look!

Dry it overnight and hang up the next day!
