This is a very simple DIY project. Given the Covid 19 lock down situation, I had tried to use whatever materials and tools that I had inside my home. It meant not having to use power tools or clamps which would have made this project a breeze through. Nonetheless, this is still an easy project for you to try at home.
This is also child friendly project and you can encourage your kids in their early teens to try it out with moderate supervision.
All that you need are :
- Teak wood beading strips from your local plywood store
- A simple hacksaw blade
- Wood Adhesive
- A bulb holder and cable for the lighting unit
- Parchment paper / photo sheet for light diffusion
- Fabric or handmade paper
- And a tinge of your creativity to do a bit of your own art
