How to make a Dump Truck Light for under $10.00
For one of my design classes, our assignment was to design a light for under $10. At first, I thought, how am I ever going to do this for under $10.00? So I put my creative thinking cap on, searched images on Google (this was before Pinterest) brainstormed with my hubby, and came up with this….
Our youngest son who was 4 at the time loved everything trucks. What 4 year old boy doesn’t love trucks. So I (we) made him this dump truck light for less than $10.00 We already had this Tonka truck as a hand-me-down, also hand-me-down duplo, and the only thing I needed to buy was the light from Ikea for $6.00
My not-so-handy hubby (lol) drew a circle first for the size and placement of the hole. Next he cut a circle in the truck. See? Anyone can do this.
I bought a lamp from Ikea for $6.00
Just add duplo. I used duplo blocks as opposed to lego because of their large size it made it easier to see them in the truck.
Annoucing…A Dump Truck Light!
It’s so easy to do. You can find the items either around your house or at a thrift store and create an amazing light for under $10.00
My son? He LOVED it. He still uses it even though he’s older now.
