I have been wanting a Ring Light for awhile now and I just thought that I would just have to wait until it was in the budget.
This is the cheapest one that I found on Amazon.
Then I saw a video on Youtube featuring Shameless Maya where they showed how to make your own for cheap. I was too impatient to wait to order all of the parts from Amazon so I didn’t end up doing their version but it sparked a desire to make my own. I started searching Youtube and found that there were more than a dozen videos on how to make your own Ring Light for under #30. I found all of the parts at my local Walmart and went for it. The links below are through Amazon and may cost a bit more. Crafting isn’t really my gift but I do love a good copycat project that will allow me to save money.
So the items that I purchased for this project were:
- 16 ft LED Rope Light in Daylight
- Transparent Duct Tape
- Wreath Frame
- Cable Ties
- Aluminum Foil
- Wax Paper
All of these items were at Walmart and cost me just under $25! Woohoo! Im a sucker for a bargain! It only took me around 30 minutes to make this light and saved me so much $$$.
Checkout my video where I show you step by step how I made it.
