Table Led Christmas Crib




My girfriend asked me what we could do with empty space under the Christmas tree table.
Why not a cradle?

Step 1: Cutting Out Caracters

Took kitchen cookie cutter pictures. Then we cutted a 1/8 white foam pieces.
Also did structure building with same material. The white colour will bring life to led lightening.

Step 2: Sky Background

Build a box with a plastic sheets and and transparent acrylic. Did put a black self adhesive vinyl coating. On that coating, I did stars with a punch and cutted a moon. Mounted an rgb led strip into it. I tested the whole thing.

Step 3: Stage

I covered a large piece of wood to do a stage. Added a piece of self adhesive aluminum foil to brighten caracters.

Step 4: Putting It All Together

Mounted another strip section on the table structure. This one will be hidden by the foam cradle structure.

Step 5: There You Go

The whole thing is finish. Nice in different colours.
The last picture was taken last year. Our dog Theo past away last spring...

    In fact, I printed the shapes from a set i found from a web site. I thought these ones had interesting "naïve" shapes perfect for the project.
