Here's a quick project that you could do in an evening to take your lighting up a notch -
Pin lights - those tiny, hidden lights that add just the right amount of magic to everything... Here's a quick and CHEAP method I've used to build these.
Let's do this!
Amazon LED flashlights (or any type you like)
Amazon Colored lighting gels
Black Duct Tape and Aluminum Tape from Hardware Store
Step 1: Cut Out the Lighting Gel Insert
You could skip this step if you're going for bright white pin lights everywhere, however, if you want to tweak the colors and add small pin "splashes" of highlights, you'll need some color gel material to get started.
Simply cut out little shapes (circles with wings) by tracing around the lens of your LED and leave little tabs (wings) so they help stay taped down.
Just by holding the gel up to the light, you can see the color shift!
Take a strip of duct tape and secure the colored gel by the wings around the front end.
