DIY Lighted Canvas - You can get Canvas from any art supply store. Then paint it however you would like. Mark your design layout on the back of Canvas and gently press an awl through the canvas to make a hole just big enough for the light bulb. Take Christmas Lights and press a bulb into each hole and secure with craft clue. @mlkromer Or this with the quote?
You might have some books around that are headed for recycle or Good Will...maybe think twice about that...there are some awesome things that can be made from them...here is a little "pinspiration" for you!
