A $5 DIY Light Table

November 29, 2011

I see them all over the place – Light Tables/Light Boxes.  But I knew they were expensive and didn’t want to construct something massive to save money, we just don’t have the room.  Then I found this post. And kept searching and found this and this. Genius! Especially since I had almost everything I needed already, so it only cost me $5 to buy some of those flat colored gems in a floral department.

Clear bin with a white top(if you don’t have white, you could line it with parchment paper to soften the light) + string of white Christmas lights + big flat clear container on top to contain the fun + gemstones = lightbox!

    What a great idea! I would have done that when my daughter was little. I think I have those same dishes from Ikea? I am fortunate enough to have a light table in my classroom, and your photos remind me of some of my own.

    That can be the on-camera flash or another off-camera flash.
    There was something indescribable that seemed to call to me.
    Playing with the dog in the garden or touching other kids or many such activities brings lot of germs with them.
