Step 1: Materials & Tools
All materials are easily found at your local store.
You will need:
- Frame - I used an IKEA frame but you can use any other frame as long as it has enough depth to accommodate the lighting.
- LED Fairy Lights
- Foil Tape - You can also use aluminum foil.
- Wax Paper
- Whiteboard Marker - You can use any marker as long as it is to be used with white board. I found the marker that you can see on the image in my local store that is magnetic and has an eraser on the cap.
- Hot glue gun
Step 2: Reflect
Cut the foil tape into pieces and cover the entire back of the frame making it as reflective as possible.
Step 3: Wax Paper
The wax paper is important for diffusing light evenly.
Use the mat to mark the wax paper in the right measure and cut with the scissors.
Step 4: Let There Be Light!
In this step we will glue the LED fairy lights onto the surface of the panel that we made reflective using the hot glue gun.
I used blue LEDs but you can use any color of your choice.
Close the frame and glue the battery holder to the back with hot glue.
Step 5: The Washer
Maybe you're wondering how we're going to use the washer, I'll explain now:
I found the marker that you can see on the image in my local store that is magnetic and has an eraser on the cap, so I decided I would put it on the side of the frame, the washer allows the magnet to stick!
