Intro: Draw Your Message LIGHTBOX

Let's build a light box where you can draw and erase!

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
  • Batteries
  • 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.
  • Washer
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

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!

Step 6: Draw You Message!

It's done!
