DIY Beauty Light Ring Tutorial w/ Video



On my hunt for a Beauty Light Ring I saw prices ranging from $50 to $800 depending on the size of the light and the manufacture. Not wanting to spend that much, I wanted to see if I could make my own cheaper? Yes I could and yes I did!! Be sure to watch the full tutorial in the video below.

Tools Needed: Scissors or Snippers (Small Wire Cutter)

Materials Needed
      
   1. Metal Wreath Ring from the Dollar Tree $1
     
        

            






       2. Nylon Cable Ties (Zip Ties) from the  Dollar Tree $1
     

   
            



         




                           3. Paper Towel Holder from Wal-Mart $2.34
    
                            







         
        4. 16ft LE D Rope Light Kit from Wal-Mart $12.88
Alternative base option:
Universal Smart Phone Holder from Five Below $5






Step 1. Insert capped end of LED rope in-between the first and 2nd metal rings of your wreath ring
and secure with a zip tie.




Step 2. Wrap LED rope light around the inner ring of your wreath ring, securing it with a zip tie at each brace point of the wreath ring.




Step 3. Start the second row right above the first row and secure with a zip tie.





Step 4. Continue wrapping your LED rope light around your wreath ring, remembering to secure with a zip tie at each brace point.





Note: Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you reach the end of your rope light.

Step 5. Once you've reach the end of your rope light, insert the power end in-between the last two
metal rings of your wreath ring and secure with a zip tie.




Note: I secured the power end with 2 zip ties



Step 6. Make sure all your zip ties are secured and snug.




Step 7. Take a pair of scissor or in my case snippers and cut the excess from all your zip ties.




(Optional) Step 8: Attach paper towel holder to the back of your wreath ring using zip ties.





Note: There are many other base options out there. This is one of the ones I have chosen to do for this tutorial. I have added another option towards the end of this video.



Step 9. Again take a pair of scissor or in my case snippers and cut the excess from all your zip ties.





Step 10. Attach power cord to the power end of your LED rope light.




Another option I added after filming this tutorial


(Optional) Step 11. Attach the Clip-On Grip of the Universal phone holder to what would be the inner bottom of your Light Ring with a zip tie. Then wrap the flexible gooseneck around the back of ring and secure with more zip ties.


Total cost of project using the paper towel holder base $17.22 before tax
Total cost of project using the Universal Phone Holder $19.88 before tax


In the end I decided to use both
MY total for my 14 1/4" DIY Beauty Light Ring was $22.22 before tax
That's still almost half the cost of the cheapest ones I found!
