This is pretty awesome. I wanted to make something like this with these spotlights but I wasn’t sure how it would work out. I think im going to try it out with some LED bulbs instead though. Thanks for this video!

EbonyGirlSpeaks Beauty Naturally® says:

i’m glad you shared this video, especially the tip on placing the light on the ceiling!

W Smith says:

I know this video was made 2 years ago but . . . I strongly suggest you replace the battery in your smoke detector and make sure it is in good working order. Because that wax paper will burn as a result of the heat created by the CFL bulb you are using. I would really hate for anything to happen to you.
