Picture of LED-Lighted Picture Frame
I had the Idea to illuminate a picture frame, because I had a LED-Bar and a fitting power supply left.
The picture is an IKEA picture called ''ERIKSLUND'' in a black frame.

This picture was good for this project because it had some free space inside between the backside and the frontside of the glass.

Step 3: Make Holes for The Switch and the Power-Cable

Make two holes in the frame for the switch and the power-Cable.
The Hole for the Switch can be may at a lower Edge in the Side.
A Good Place for the Hole for the Power Cable is at the Downside in the Near of The Switch-Hole.

Step 4: Solder a Piece of Wire to the LED-Bar

There are 2 Wires on the LED-Bar, dismantle the first milimetres of the Wires. Then dismantle the First milimetres of the 2 Pole wire Too.
Make 2 Pieces of the Shrinking Hose that are approximatly 3cm Long and Put it over the Wires. Then you can Solder the Wires from the LED-Bar each with one Wire from the 2 Wire-Cable. Then Put the Shrinking Hose Pieces over the Soldered Area and Shrink it with the Flame of a Lighter.

Step 5: Attach the LED-Bar in The Frame

Extra Strong Dual Side Adhesive Foam Tape is the Best and easiest Way to attache.
Cut 3 or 4 Pieces from the Tape Roll and attach the Bar with this into the Frame at the Top-Side.

Step 6: Attach the Cable

Look how long the 2 Pole Cable must be to lay the Cable to the Switch, make Points of Hot Glue and Press the Cable in the Glue.

Very cool.  I have two of these frames at home that I might convert in this way (with my wife's permission, of course!)
