I needed a clock that looked cool. Blue LED's look cool. Do the math. The basic idea is to have a clock that is lit from the frame.
You will need:Clock (Bought from IKEA, has a translucent frame)LED's (blue, had 6, used 3)Wires9 volt battery9 volt battery clipSwitch
Put the LED's where you want them. I placed three at places around the frame using blu-tac. Make sure that the led's are placed with the correct polarity ...
Connect the led's together with insulated electrical wire (neg to pos of led's). Protect the connections with electrical tape. I also wired in the switch. Leave 2 leads ...
Attach two wires to the ones hanging from the clock, long enough to reach the floor. I used an old USB cable. It already had 2 wires inside ...
So there you go, a clock that lights up. Plug in a 9v, flick the switch, and you're ready to go!
