Introduction: LED Gingerbread House "Loveshack"

Picture of LED Gingerbread House "Loveshack"
For the holidays I host an annual gingerbread house decorating event with friends. This year, we stepped it up a notch and built an LED gingerbread house "loveshack".

This is really easy to build with basic electronics knowledge. You'll need:
The Open Heart Kit has excellent instructions on how to put it together and get your heart working. It's very easy. I would suggest reading its instructions and programming away.

Oh me too! Unfortunately we said goodbye to the Gingerbread House last winter. I'll keep that in mind if we do something similar next year :)
