Nursery Night Light - Sweet Dreams

11 Materials
1 Hour

Make a battery operated night light for the child’s room that can be placed on top of a shelf.

Add a removable bear for playing time and adapt to the colors of your choice. Replace the cloud shaped box frames with square or round ones if those are available.

Paint the box frames with the white color and the inside of them with the light blue color.

Use a paint brush to make white clouds, use the structure paint to add dimension.

Use a sponge dauber to distress both the clouds and the frames with the silver sterling color.

Add the stars and the rhinestones on the large frame box.

Color the wooden letters with the danube blue ink pad. Let them dry well.

Glue the wooden letters, the stars and the rhinestones on the small wooden cloud box.

To make the swing for the bear cut a 5cm x 15cm (~2in x 6in ) long piece of the jute fabric. Cut two about 40cm (~16in) long pieces of the satin ribbon. Lay the satin ribbon and fold the edges of the jute fabric about 1,5 cm (~1/2 in).

Glue the satin ribbon edges to the back of the box with hot glue. The swing is about 15cm (~6in) from the topmost point where the ribbon is glued.

Turn the small wooden cloud box to the back and start setting the led light by gluing with hot glue. To make the hot glue cold quickly and flat, use a metallic ruler (or any other metallic surface) to press it.

Finally glue the two cloud boxes together to the bottom side of their frames. Place the small bear.

    This adorable night light would be much higher priced in a fancy shop than the $15 it cost you for materials to create it.

    If you were to give this as a gift at a baby shower, I'm sure the mother-to-be would be on Cloud Nine to receive it.
