Step 1: Step 1
Pic1: I had this little project box that was dug up to practice some wood burning. Decided to use if for this instead.
Pic 2: As you can see in the next picture, i installed a rocker switch on the side, and drilled a hole for the speaker wire to run through,
Pic 3: I plopped the battery holder inside, and ran the wires to the switch, and out the back. (For some reason these cheapo batteries think that 1.5v x 4 = 6.4?? )
Step 2: Step 2
I figured out which resistor was needed for the two colors (white and blue on 6.4v source). Don't ask me the specs on the resistors, because I punched the stats into an online calculator and used what it spit out.
So I soldered the resistor to the leg of the LED, and then the whole assembly to a sewing pin on either end. The picture describes it better than I could ever explain. :)
I then took my Spiky Light of Death, and pushed each end through either side of the wire. Remember that polarity matters, so make sure the + side of your Spiky Light of Death is pushed through the + side of the wire. Same goes for the - side.
(There is an Instructable here that shows a fella lighting his whole apartment this way. Might explain it a little better than I did, but I cant find the link now :(
Carry on this way, until you get to the length you want. Mine ended up about 3ft long.
