DIY Heat mat
Hello everyone- Along with the PVC seed starting shelf I finished I also wanted to make a heat mat for a couple of the shelves. I had seen a how to on vegetablegardener.com a while back, but had to wait until the holidays to buy Christmas rope lights. I still had kind of a hard time finding them because most of the lights are LED's these days, and for this project you need regular outdoor rope lights so they get a little warm. I also started looking a little late which probably didn't help.
A piece of 40x20 1/2" MDF, 1 1/2" strips of plywood, a few screws and staples and it was done. Probably less than $20/mat. It was a pretty easy DIY project I think.
Have a great weekend - Lisa
