A $5 DIY Light Table

November 29, 2011

I see them all over the place – Light Tables/Light Boxes.  And while woodworking/electronics is one of the world’s most loved DIY projects, 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. 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.
