Step 1: Get Your Act Together!
The LEDs are from China.( sorry I hate to order from China too but I cant afford an other country)I got mine from eBay. They were about $10.00 for a roll 16.5 ft. long. http://m.ebay.com/itm/5M-300Leds-5630-White-Super-Bright-LED-Strip-SMD-Light-Waterproof-12V-DC-US-/381536427503.
1. LEDs. Your need about 5 or 6 feet depending on the size of board you use. Its up to you what size you want.
2. The Board. I had a piece of 3/4 inch plywood lying around so I used it. It really can be any size you want depending on how many LEDs you have.
3. 12volt power converter. You can get these from good will pretty easily.
Step 2: Put Your LEDs On!
Step 3: Solder Then Together.
