LED Christmas Lights?
I'm a freshman in college right now and I really want to spruce up my suite and room a little for Christmas.
So Christmas lights would come to mind to display at my suite's door, but because of fire hazard rules/laws we can't have extension cords. I think I also read that we can't have Christmas lights period.
So I started thinking I could make something out of LED lights to attach to our door so people walking by can see. I was thinking maybe an outline of a Christmas tree made of green LEDs would be cool or putting LEDs inside a wreath to light it up.
Which would be the best way for me to power all of the LEDs? I've never worked with LEDs before, so this would be new to me but I really want to put something together. I basically want to chain a bunch of LEDs together, power them with batteries, and have the ability to turn them on at night and off in the morning.
So, any ideas would help a lot. Maybe a point in direction.
