Step 1: Supplies

For this light you need cardboard, a plastic box/casing and a light source I used a skeleton led from the dollar tree and it works perfectly fine.

Step 2: Cardboard Prep

Cut the cardboard into the same size as your plastic box and decorate It. Also ad a piece of cardboard so that the bigger piece will stay on the edge.PLEASE DECORATE IT DIFFERENTLY I was having trouble with my tools so I just poked hole in it.

Step 3: Plastic Box

Put the piece you just made into the plastic box and do some trimming on the edges. Tape the side without the piece of cardboard to the plastic box.

Step 4: Led

Put the LEDs in the box and tape the battery pack to the bottom of the box.

Step 5: The Wall

Choose a wall that you think will be good and hang it up. I recommend command strips. (The picture has tape because command strips were not available.)
