My completed diamond painting - Starry Night by Van Gogh

As a crafting challenge for 2020, I decided that each month I would aim to complete one of my unfinished projects. So far so good, and I present my finished craft project for May - my diamond painting of Starry Night by Van Gogh.

I bought this kit last year while we were on holiday in Florida. I'd been wanting to try a larger diamond painting for a while, and when I spotted this one on special offer I couldn't resist. I've always loved the painting, the blues and purples along with the contrasting yellows and oranges really appeal to me. The kit is available over here on Amazon and at Hobbycraft (see the link at the bottom of this post).

It's a fairly large diamond painting piece, the final design measures about 50 x 40 cm, and it's full drill which means that the entire area is covered with the sparkly plastic pieces. Diamond painting is very simple, all you need to do is place tiny pieces of coloured plastic into the correct place on a pre-printed, adhesive canvas. It's a great craft to do if you are looking for something relaxing that doesn't require too much concentration.

I must admit that this project wasn't on my list of planned projects for the year. I wasn't even anticipating starting it until next year, once I'd cleared my backlog of projects. But with the lockdown leaving me with some extra time for crafting, especially a simple craft that can be worked on around the needs of the family, I decided to make a start. It didn't take too long to complete and I enjoyed every minute!

I've ordered a frame which should be here in a week or two, then I just need to decide where to hang it.

Now I have an even larger collection of leftover diamond dotz, and I need to find a crafty way to use them up! Mia and I came up with this simple craft for using leftover diamond painting drills, I'm thinking that I might try something similar for myself.

For my June project I'm thinking ahead to Christmas again with some little felt Christmas kits that have been sitting around for far too long!


  1. Oh wow! That looks amazing! Well done. I keep fancy trying diamond painting. I will get around to it eventually. I bet it looks gorgeous in a frame x

    1. Thank you! It's so easy and yet so satisfying, I'd definitely recommend giving it a go!
