Look up DIY sugar warming boxes on google, there are lots of articles. This guy describes how he made one: http://blog.josephhall.com/2006/07/sugar-warming-box.html

i just bought acrylic sheets from the hardware store and taped them together with clear tape -- got one of those spa lights warming lights whatever they're called and gosh i've forgotten so much -- you want the red bulb i think because the white clear one is too harsh on your eyes -- it's really a no brainer -- i got a dimming switch for mine but not necessary -- you get the warming lights at the big box hardware stores too where the plexiglas/acrylic sheets are also purchased --

i did drill a hole in one sheet so i could hang the light in there -- drilling acrylic is not for sissies -- the hole is made easily but removing the drill is when it can crack -- 

light bulb:
