Mushroom Mood Light – Design in Progress

Much as I love designing masks, I want to make plans (to create) for things with a more universal appeal.
Decorative lights and stained glass are passions of mine and I have always had it in mind to develop the plans in this direction.

My fascination with coloured lights is due in no small part to my having Aspergers syndrome. In true style, I have started off with a pretty complex design – it takes about twelve hours at the moment but I’m working on simplifying the build.

I like to think that I can “get away” with it being a project that you have to invest in (timewise) because of the very rewarding end result.
The full cost of the materials for building the light comes to less than £15 (excluding the cost of a mains adapter).
One of the most beautiful things about it is that you need no electrical knowledge whatsoever, just the same, very basic tools used for mask making. The only additional materials you will need to build this are the lights themselves and the paper for the “windows”.
