Alrighty, this is my first challenge  Grin
I decided to mix my love for graphic design and my love for candles!


In the light(and when its off!) it just looks like a white pillar candle with one of those things that keep them even on top.

(sorry its blurry, flash was catching the shiny metal too much!!)

I started out making a design on illustrator:


I used my computer and printer, cardstock, a sheet of shrinky dink rough and ready, a tin lid, modge podge, and a re-purposed led accent light.


It casts a really neat pattern on the wall and ceiling! The pic is a little over exposed, but you get the idea Smiley


It also looks pretty nifty being on with the room light on


It really casts beautiful light in my bathroom. Its bright enough to take a nice relaxing bath when you don't want all those normal bright lights Cheesy
Thanks for looking, and I'm happy to answer any questions!

Very unique!  Not exactly sure what the light source is...is it a mini push on light from the dollar store?

Its just a little round LED puck that plugs in. They make battery operated versions, but they usually aren't as vivid. They are made for using under cabinets and just as an accent light in general. They are pretty nifty because they are super bright and have ultra low energy consumption Smiley If that still doesn't make sense i can try and find a link to something similar online!

This is great!  Where did you find a lid that was just the right size for the accent light?  Did they come together?

Nope, The lid is actually from a little tin that had chocolates in it. It just happened to be the right size!!
