Take a $1 push light and transform it into a custom night-light for your baby’s nursery! It’s so easy to do and only takes a few materials. These push lights come in all different shapes, so find one that coordinates with your nursery. Even if you don’t consider yourself crafty, you will enjoy whipping up this little project in no time!
- Push light
- Tissue paper
- Mod Podge
- Spray paint
- Painter’s tape
Step One: Cover the light portion of the push light with painter’s tape, leaving the edges exposed. Give the light a few coats of spray paint and let it fully dry.
Step Two: Using the Mod Podge, layer strips of tissue paper onto the light. Smooth out any large wrinkles as you go. Add as many or as few layers as you need to achieve the look you want. Top everything off with one more layer of Mod Podge to make sure the tissue paper is fully sealed.
Step Three: After the Mod Podge is fully dry, use a sharpie to draw a pattern onto the tissue paper if desired. Tiny dots, circles, lines or any other simple shape works best.
