How Do You Paint a Planet Mobile?
Making a Solar System Kit into a Star Wars Mobile!
The hanging planets turn into their own little universe. The mobile moves and spins too, which makes it look even cooler (although it makes it MUCH harder to photograph!).
Not to be a bummer, but… Alderaan, that’s no moon.
The mobile hangs across the room from the Death Star mirror I made when we first moved into The Mad House.
The mobile also looks great in front of the no-sew space curtains that are still holding up 4 years after I made them. The glow in the dark stickers provide a great backdrop to the planets. My son’s Space Geek room didn’t really need to get any geekier, but when you’ve come this far you might as well go all the way, right?

What an great idea to change the solar system into Star Wars planets! They look realistic and awesome. I am going to try this for my kid’s room. We are a family of Star Wars fans. Thanks for this.
