How to make an acrylic light display.
Step 1: Supplies
12v batteries tholder
Adhesive LED strip
Step 2: Engrave
Tape your picture under the acrylic sheet. Use the engraving tool to trace over the design.
Step 3: Build a Base
Use cardboard to make a base and hot glue all the sides together. The base will hold up your plastic sheet and contain the electronics. Make a slit in the top for the plastic to go into. I also cut a small hole for the on/off switch and then covered the base in duct tape to make it look nicer.
Step 4: Electronics
Solder the battery and switch leads, positive to positive, neg to neg. Put the let on a piece of cardboard that can go inside the base. Position it under the plastic sheet as close as possible. Add batteries.
