Introduction: DIY Night Light Treasure Chest

About: I love to build DIY wood projects.

This Glowing Night Light Treasure Chest has a neat effect, as if there is a glowing treasure inside and is all shiny. Your child can come up with all sorts of imaginary stories while they watch and slip into the dream land. You can build it yourself using small piece of ¼” plywood. This treasure box looks charming considering that the outside is all made out of plywood only. Have fun building.

    Can even use an LED strip to change colors, too! LOVE this project! I might even laser cut the parts

    Very cool! I think I would have used a much smaller light bulb (candelabra-based actual night light bulb or similar), but whatever works for you is great. Good job. Looks easy enough that even I could build it. Burning with a torch was something I would not have thought out. Nice touch. Also, the plans are very clear and complete. Thanks!
