Please forgive my grimmer and spelling, English is my first language.

For a long time I have quested to use LEDs with AC Main voltage, without the sparking and burning. This is my first instructable to show my quest for easy LED lighting without any expansive converters or transformers.

I've been looking at LEDs for over 16 years and I can't see very well, I'm in love with them how they sparkle, add solar panels and rechargeable battery's and OH BABY, HIT ME. (yes I need help)

(if you start a fire and burn something down you have been warned, This is for information only even though you might see pictures of a finished product I assure you they are all tricks of light and shadow)

No joke be careful if you try this at home, I'm on heavy meds and can't be trusted.

Step 1: Long dark nights

Picture of Long dark nights

Here in the Woods of Oregon it's always dark in the winter, the sun goes down at 4:20, And the ghosts wail in the free of the night, my only protection is the light I can forge with my own frail hands.

For this reason I've chosen to share my triumphs

I'd like to try building this too.
What is the price and source of your LEDS?
How about a complete detailed parts list description?

LED's from Ebay, are very cheap. but the amount you get makes up the price. I bought about 2000 of them in Pink and White. The parts list is LED, Diode That's about it. You must do the math and check your line voltage to find out how many you need.
