My house came with a media room, which we currently use as a playroom for our kids. I’m still trying to decorate it to look like a theater, and I spotted some cool spotlight lamps in a high end catalog. I was determined to recreate the look for less, and I think I succeeded. My spotlight is a huge hit with my husband and kids! Now I just have to make a few more! I found all the items I needed at the Dollar Tree.
- Camera Tripod, $1
- Pencil Basket, $1
- LED Push Light, $1
- Paper, on hand
- Glue, on hand
To make your own designer spotlight:
Step one: Cut a piece of paper to place inside the pencil basket. This will help focus the light.
Step two: Push the LED light into the pencil basket. Mine was too big to reach the bottom of the basket, but I pressed it in until it was stuck.
Step three: Glue the basket to the tripod. I used E-6000 initially but it wasn’t strong enough, so I used Aleene’s Jewelry and Metal Glue. It worked perfectly.
To use the spotlight, just push on the LED light to turn it on. Because it’s on a tripod, the spotlight can be adjusted. This would make a cute table side or bedside light. It’s modern and stylish, but without the hefty price tag!
