This instructable is about making stars shine brightly. A while ago, it was also about making Christmas trees without cutting down trees. These LED Christmas trees have an Instructable of their own
now. They're still in the videoclip, though.
If you can solder a little, you can make LED stars. The stars can be made 6 to 10 cm wide and use a 9 Volt battery as a pedestal.
If you want to easily change batteries, take a look at step 5. The star can be mounted on a 9 Volt battery clip...
No video playing? Have a look at it here...
So get your soldering iron, grab your LEDs, find some batteries and kick off the christmas decorating season.
If you're uncertain about your soldering skills: Start with making the star. It's easy. You can do it. Really. Trust me.
Still in doubt whether you should make the star or not? Here's the one decisive reason you were waiting for:--
The first three Makers who post a picture of their self-made star in the comments get a 3 months Pro Membership gift code from me.
An additional one year Pro Membership gift code goes to the maker of the funniest / loveliest / greatest picture that involves a LED star :-)
