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
All you need to do is to find the right spot to drill a hole in the truck. And thread the light through.
