  • Medium blue, king size flat sheet (two sheets in photo) 
  • Self-adhesive stars 
  • Black spray paint 
  • Yellow spray paint 


  1. Wash and dry the sheet. 
  2. Lay the sheet out flat and adhere stars to the sheet across the top third of the sheet. 
  3. Stretch the sheet between two ladders to be painted.  
  4. Spray paint (black) across the top of the sheet approximately one third down covering the stars and creating a darker dense black along the top portion.  A more faded black (lightly painted) toward the middle of the sheet. 
  5. After the paint is dry, turn the sheet upside down and secure to the ladders. 
  6. Spray paint the top of the sheet approximately one third down to be the glow of the city when hanging right side up. 
  7. When paint is dry, remove the stars to reveal the unpainted star shapes of the sheet.  More stars can now be added to provide a little shiny twinkle affect.  
  8. Hang the sheet in the classroom using large binder clips or bungie cords from a drop ceiling (ceiling tiles and tracks).  Other ceilings may require tacks.
