Painted jar lids. (From Martha Stewart Crafts: Paint is permanent after air drying for 21 days or can be baked to expedite permanence. Bake method: Let project air dry for 1 hour, place in cool oven. Set temperature to 350 degrees. Once oven reaches 350 degrees, bake for 30 minutes (glass must heat gradually). After 30 minutes, turn oven off. Let glass cool completely in oven. Wait 72 hours before using.) Works on metal as well as glass.
"Good Night" Night Light. — This would be perfect hanging under a loft by your futon if you want a little light while you're relaxing at night. I'd probably scale it down and use a lighter painters canvas + large-bulb string lights so you can hang it on a wall hook without worrying about it being too heavy. (Just don't leave it on overnight! Might get too hot with the string lights.)
