Introduction: Led Milkshake Hat Lamp

Materials List:
1 Hat
1 iPod Charger with cord and wall adapter
3  1/2 inch PVC T joint
1 foot 1/2 PVC pipe
1 wooden disc
6 colored LED's
6 100 ohm resistors
solder
2 feet red and black insulated wire
wire strippers
hot glue
electrical tape
soldering iron 
wire cutters
pliers 
sponge


Step 1: Step 1

Get your 6 LED's and twist the 100 ohm resistor to the negative end of each one. Solder the resistor to the LED. Repeat for all 6 LED's. Solder red wire to the positive end of each LED. Solder black wire to the end of the resistor. Now to make your wire in parallel, solder all red wires together and all black wires together in a central middle point. Make LED'S look like starfish. 

Step 2: Step 2

Now that you have your wires soldered together, you will make your PVC stand. Take 2 pieces of 2 inch PVC and use them to connect 3 T joints. The two on the outside are parallel with the ground. The one in the middle is perpendicular with the ground. Then take your 1 foot 1/2 inch PVP pipe and insert it into the top of the middle T joint. 

Step 3: Step 3

Take iPod cord and cut off the iPhone adapter (end that goes into phone). Take your strippers and strip the wire part off of the cord. Cut the green and white wires off and leave the red and black. Put the iPod cord through one of the bottom side T joints and string it to to the top of the 1 foot of PVC. Then take your wooden disk and drill a hole in the center about 1/5th of an inch(size of drill bit). Put your modified end of cord through the hole you just made in the wooden disc. 

Step 4: Step 4

Take the red wire from your USB cord and solder it to the red cord that you connected in the hat. Then do the same for the black wire. 

Step 5: Step 5

Glue LED's to wooden disk. Glue wooden disk to top of PVC pipe. Stick LED's through 6 holes in hat.
