Introduction: LED Steampunk Rose
Step 1: Materials
-2 colors long wire
-a short amount of pretty, insulated wire (mine is red)
-tinned copper braided wire (this stuff: http://www.made-in-china.com/showroom/georgewenzhou/product-detailTMsxEChPaGVD/China-Tinned-Copper-Braided-Wire.html)
-battery pack (&batteries)
-2 puff balls
Step 2: Wrap the LED in Wire.
Be careful that the wire is insulated at all points from the LED leads. This step is purely decorative!
Step 3: Solder LED Leads to Wires.
Step 4: Sugru Over Solder.
Make sure you don't short-circuit; the sugru should insulate the leads from one another.
Step 5: Prepare the Flower.
Hold one end of the braided wire and open out the other end so it looks flower-like.
Step 6: Twirl Wire.
Optional, but much neater.
Step 7: Insert LED Into Flower.
Through the bottom of the flower, feed in the head of the LED. Pad with puffballs to hold it in the center.
Step 8: Sugru Closed End of Flower.
This should hold the wires in place.
Step 9: Attach to Power.
Attach wire leads to battery pack.
Step 10: Voila!
Now do something pretty with it.
We have a be nice policy.
