I’m sure you can imagine how many requests we’ve gotten for a galaxy wall ever since Luciana was released! They ranged from asking for a galaxy foam board corner room, to just a trifold scene. I decided to meet in the middle and make a reversible scene that we can use in Luciana’s bedroom, the visitors center, and the mars habitat. You can also use this for a Dr. Who set up! I wanted to make something a little easier than a corner room this time that could also be easily stored away when not in use. Typically I don’t use cardboard, foam board is my go to material. However, I understand not everyone can get foam board and cardboard boxes are easy enough to find. I grabbed a new, heavy duty one from Home Depot. Painting this backdrop was so much fun! I hope you enjoy the craft!

Materials Needed:

  • Cardboard Box
    • Home Depot 18 x 18 x 24 regular $1.60, heavy duty $3.48
  • Craft Paint
  • Scrap Paper
  • Glue Stick

Watch and tell us if you have other galaxy craft ideas for us to make!

      It took a lot of talent for you to make the galaxy wall look that good!

      It would probably be really hard, but I think you should try making the Mars Habitat out of foam board. That would be awesome since it costs so much to buy from American Girl.

      Galaxy side was so awesome, I love all the Luciana themed crafts! Do you think you could craft a sleeping bag or tent?

      Great idea to make it double sided. Your painting looks wonderful Rudy. I can see many ways to use this.
      Just wondering; are you planning on making anymore corner rooms in the future?
      whatever your plans are thank you for sharing your ideas.
