Here Are Some Arts and Craft Ideas With the Addition Of LED Lights

When most people think about arts and crafts, the first thing that comes to mind is usually something like painting or drawing. However, there are so many other possibilities out there, and with a little bit of creativity you can come up with all sorts of amazing ideas.

This article is going to take a look at six business arts and crafts ideas that you can use to get your creative juices flowing. And for each one, a little bit of LED lighting will be added or inspired, for an extra touch of pizzazz.


Create a Mood Board

If you’re working on a project and are having trouble getting inspired, try making a mood board. All you need is some poster board or cardboard, some scissors, and a bunch of pictures from magazines that represent the feeling or vibe you’re going for.

For example, if you’re doing a beach-themed project, find pictures of the ocean, palm trees, and anything else that makes you think of the beach. Once you have your pictures, arrange them however you want on the board, add the lights complementing the existing colors and then take a step back and see if anything jumps out at you. With a mood board, it’s easy to get inspired and come up with new ideas.

Make a LED business sign

This is a cool project that can make your business stand out. All you need is a piece of wood (or thick cardboard), some LED lights, and a stencil or template for your business logo. First, paint or otherwise decorate the piece of wood however you want.

Once it’s dry, add the lights around the edge of the wood, using hot glue or tape. Then, use the stencil or template to trace your logo onto the wood, and fill it in with whatever color you want. Hang it up in your office or store, and watch as people admire your handiwork!

Make a String Art Picture

String art is a popular craft that has been around for a while, and it’s easy to see why – it’s simple, yet effective, and you can make all sorts of different designs. To make a string art picture, you’ll need some LED string lights, a piece of wood (or thick cardboard), a hammer, nails, and embroidery thread or thin rope.

First, decide on the design you want to make, then nail the string lights into the wood in a straight line. Next, start wrapping the thread or rope around the nails, following your design. Once you’re finished, turn on the lights and enjoy your handiwork!

Of course, you don’t have to stick to straight lines – you can get creative and make all sorts of different designs.

Turn an Old Shirt into a Cool T-Shirt

If you have an old shirt that you don’t wear anymore, there’s no need to throw it away – you can give it new life by turning it into a cool t-shirt. All you need is the shirt, some scissors, and some lights (you can use strips or individual bulbs).

First, cut the shirt into the shape you want – it doesn’t have to be perfect, as this is supposed to be a DIY project. Next, add the lights to the shirt, either by sewing them on or using safety pins.

On the other hand, you can make/sew your business logo on the shirt with EL wire, which will make it a walkable advertisement

Make a Mirror Frame

One way to add a touch of elegance to your office is to put up a mirror, but why not take it one step further and make your mirror frame? It’s quite simple to do, and all you need is a frame (you can either buy one or reuse an old one), some lights, and hot glue.

First, remove the glass from the frame, then cut the lights to size and glue them around the inside of the frame. Once the glue has dried, put the glass back in, and voila! You now have a one-of-a-kind mirror frame that can also be used as a unique piece of wall art.

Of course, you can do this with any type of framework – not just mirrors.

As you can see, there are all sorts of different ways that you can use LED lights to enhance your business projects or space. Whether you’re making a sign, picture, or frame, adding some lights is a great way to make them stand out and add a touch of elegance. Projects can be bigger if you engage with your colleagues or employees, so you can make even bigger DIY LED crafts.
