DIY Light Box

IMG_4767

A very cool little light box to add some interest to a bare wall. It’s more decorative than useful, but it looks great! You can use any image – even pictures of pets, friends and family. I grabbed my lights from Ikea – they also come in red, which would be particularly atmospheric!

 

What You Need:

 

1 small canvas frame (less than A4 size and 2–3 cm thickness)

 

Tracing paper (A4 size)

 

A colour photocopier

 

Scissors

 

Sticky tape

 

Small fairy lights with switch (not plug-in)

 

What To Do:
