That’s right, ladies and gentlemen–
the title says it all.
Here is my zombie survival kit night light. It can either be lit by an attached flashlight, or it simply charged by any light source to glow in the dark, thanks to a special paint I used for the back of the case. I made it for a friend that thinks zombies are awesome because—let’s face it—they are.
The case is made out of a spaghetti box. I used the cardboard backing of the box as the main frame, and the top (which was clear plastic) as the “glass”. I spray-painted the box with metallic spray paint and dabbed it with newspaper to give it a galvanized look. I carved a hole in it for an old clip-on flashlight. I also covered the edges of the box with reflective sheet-metal (which came from a cookie tin), so that the light would better reflect onto the inside of the case.
I took little Royal Jelly vials (after drinking the Royal Jelly over the course of a couple of weeks) and removed the labels by soaking them in hot water. Then, using a syringe, I filled them with a blue liquid made by soaking old marker felt in water. I capped the vials with their original cap, although I had to hot-glue them shut so that the cap would stay on and no liquid would come out.
I put them all together on the plastic tray that they originally came in, except I cut it so that it looked nicer, and I held them in place with electrical tape which I found outside on the ground. Then I glued that tray onto a piece of an old hard-cover book that I had been using for a collage, and I attached a syringe (no needle, obviously) that I had from a science kit.
Total money spent: $0
I hope you enjoyed my completely upcycled artwork :)
