This is a giant Rubik’s Cube that I made years ago with the help of my roommates for a- wait for it- Rubik’s Cube theme party! It is constructed out of black foam cor and color theatrical gels. The entire piece was assembled over our existing chandelier but you could also secure battery-operated LEDs inside as well for a more versatile installation.
Granted this was in 2006, but I believe all materials cost about $40-$50. We later recycled the foam cor to make custom holiday light shapes for our front window (sorry no pictures), and the gels were used for future events to add color to the Par-can lights I would borrow from work. 🙂
