16 Easy Galaxy Print DIY Projects To Make Everything Cooler

If you’re a rainbow lover, I’m sorry to be the one to tell you that there is another print that has stolen all of the attention: galaxy print. Rainbow is still awesome, obviously, but there is something so, well, out-of-this-world, about galaxy print. It’s the reason why the intergalactic pattern has shown up on everything from bags to phones to macarons. Yes, food.

If you think that galaxy print is just a fancy way of saying “bleach splatter prints,” you obviously have not seen all of the pretty galaxy print DIYs out there. Some may start off with a bit of bleach, but when you add in some pink, black, blue, and purple, you get something that makes any bleach splatter print look as basic as a plain white t-shirt.

If you were mesmerized by galaxy hair color, you will be a fan of galaxy print DIYs. Promise. And unlike some so-complicated-they-require-a-textbook DIYs, achieving a galaxy look is easy-peasy whether you’re creating it on a pair of shorts or a desk lamp. (Really.) All you need is colored paints and bleach. Then get busy splattering and blending them. There’s no need to worry about proper nebula formations. It’s about being random and playing around until you come up with something you’re happy with. Be inspired by these 16 easy galaxy print DIYs:

1. Forget about buying a fancy phone case. You can make your own galaxy print one using your old black phone case and some paints.

2. A galaxy lamp is one of the easiest ways to upgrade your dorm room. Just make sure you buy your own lamp instead of using the one the school supplies. Housing wouldn’t appreciate your creativity as much as the rest of us.

3. The moody colors of a galaxy t-shirt make it cooler than a tie-dye one. Instead of an all-over print, try focusing the design on a specific area.
