Hey there, Tara Bowerman here, Elemental LED's Customer Service Rep with a Holiday upcycled DIY project.

I found a square foam block given to me by a coworker, which has been sitting on my desk waiting to be used for some time. This block always reminded me of ice because of it's color and thought foam would nicely diffuses light into a warm glow, so what better time than to use it for the holidays!


Dance Party Light Kit
3 ft High Density RGB Strip Light
1 foot foam box
Exacto knife
An assortment of clear Christmas decor from a craft store

Step 1: Design Time

First, I started by taking my translucent star and snowflake ornaments and creating a design. I started with the stars, tracing with an exacto knife and peeling away the thick layer of foam until it was hollow. I then inserted the star into the cutout so the light can pass through and leave cool shapes on the wall.
Sweet! I like that the snowflakes you added in were tinted so it helps change the color a bit :) You should enter this into the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/contest/holidaygifts2012">Holiday Gifts Contest</a>!
