Wall Lights Update ~ Sun & Moon

A while ago I updated my ugly wall lights with ash tree leaves and mod podge: see my previous post

They looked great, but eventually the heat of the bulbs faded and browned the leaves, so I decided it was time for another upcycle!

I used paint remover to get rid of the heavy duty outdoor mod podge I used and they cleaned up very easily:

I wanted to go for a sun and moon design, and I drew it on with a pencil first:

Then I dug out some glass/ceramic paints including some gold lead light paint which I used to go over my pencil lines:

Then I filled in the background in a dark blue and the sun and moon in yellow and grey/blue:

Once they were dry they were ready to put back up!

I’m very pleased with their new look!
