Even in nightlight form, the allure of diamonds is undeniable.

This project from Molly Madfis of almostmakesperfect.com — despite what her website says — is the perfect way to add a little glam to hallways everywhere, lights on or off.

And if you don’t think diamonds are forever, Madfis’ simple tutorial is easy to adapt to other shapes — like a kitty face for the cat people, or a Batman logo for the boy people.

Materials:

 

  • -black cardstock
  • coloured vellum
  • X-acto knife
  • dollar store nightlight
  • black wire
  • super glue
  • tape
