Pottery Barn Knockoff Customized Nightlight: CompareSupplies need to make customized nightlights:

1. Design your nightlight image. You can do this on your computer (4×4 square should cover the canvas front and sides) and then print it out on a piece of white tissue paper you’ve taped down to a normal printer sheet. Another option, would be to cut a 4×4 square from decorative tissue and just use letter stickers to customize.

Pottery Barn Knockoff Customized Nightlight: Create Art2. Use Zig Squeeze & Roll Jumbo Tip Glue to affix the tissue to the front of canvas. Gently smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles. I highly suggest not applying too much glue because you definitely don’t want to soak the tissue! Repeat on the sides, folding in the corners like you’re wrapping a present. Try not to touch the printed image too much, the ink will smear.

Pottery Barn Knockoff Customized Nightlight: Attaching Art3. Allow to dry completely and then using whatever strong glue you have around, attach to the nightlight clip (see picture below.)

    Hello! I love this idea but could you give me more details about how you created the image on your computer? Also, if I did just get the decorative tissue paper, how could I put an image like the birds on it and what kind of letter stickers do you think? Thank you so much!!!

      Also, it looks like the tissue paper you used was white AND pink? or did you use two separate sheets?
