For tute scroll Down!!!



I am WAY into lighting. Perhaps too much?  Wink

I wanted a nite light sort of thing for my living room because I hate watching TV in the pitch dark and i needed a dim lamp.





SO I made a little glowing "Starry Night"





I know the pics leave something to be desired, but its hard to take a picture in the dark!   Wink
Let me know what you think!  





TUTE IS HERE!!!!


Here is a pic of everything you will need...


Picture frame, glue, cardborad (if you use USPS boxes make sure they are not new. they tend to get mad about that) a night light, and an extention cord.

 So, you take a picture frame and take the back piece off of it. Stick a picture in it that has been printed on regular printer paper (so the light shows through).  Put dots of clear glue in the corners to hold it to the glass.


Now take the back part and make cardboard "sides" to glue around it.  


Now cut a hole in the back piece and stick a night light through, so that the only thing sticking out of the back of the back piece is the plug.



Plug it in with a short extention cord. And glue the frame to the front.



Then you have fabulousness!!! Grin  






Hope you like! If you make one, Please post post pics!

Beautiful!  Would you mind giving a tutorial?  I've been thinking of doing something similar in my living room with a large piece of art, but I'm not quite sure how to go about it.  (Have had  afew ideas that didnt' really pan out... Undecided)
