Make Your Own Accent Light with Concrete and Some LEDs

Now that LED strips exist, it’s super easy to make your own lighting. Case in point, YouTuber Darbin Orvar shows off her light cube packed between a couple of slabs on concrete.

The easiest part of the this project is wiring the LEDs to a USB port, which just requires a small amount of soldering. From there, the concrete is formed, then the shade is made from a polycarbonate sheet. The end result is a clever looking little light that can plug into any phone charger with a USB cable. Of course, you don’t really have to use concrete if you don’t want to, but the video provides a pretty good base idea for any number of different materials.

She wanted an accent light with a unique design so she decided to use some concrete, lexan and 5 volt led strip lights to create a portable lamp.
