Step 1: What You Need
1 string LED lights 100ct Red
Cardboard piece or box
1 roll Masking tape or any light tape
Pencil or Pen to poke holes
Scissors or Box Cutter
Any 2 colors of lights or any tape will work . Cardboard held the bulbs best.
Step 2: Learn From My Silly Mistakes
I also learned what it says on the outside of the LED box may not be on the inside.I bought 100 count then found there were 75 bulbs,I guess no one ever counts them.
I was drawing on the front then realized I don't want my mistakes to show. Draw it BACKWARDS on the back.
Plug in your lights before you start and check them. It is a real bummer to do all of this and half of the string wont light up.
Step 3: Cut and Draw
Then I drew around a pan for the outer part of the No symbol.
The photo isn't wrong draw it backwards on the back side so it wont show up on the front where people see it.
Draw the letter L parallel to the base or in a straight line with the bottom so it wont look like mine [which appears to be leaning or rocking] .
Step 4: The Hole Thing
I am no perfectionist so I just poked holes about one inch or so away from each other for my final size circle about 14 inches wide.You need some room to get your fingers and the lights to all fit,you can make it any size but don't poke holes too close the cardboard will break.
Step 5: The Whole Thing
I would push in 5 or 6 bulbs then tape those down and put in 5 or 6 more then tape them.
I plugged the red lights plug into the green plug and was ready to do red.
I want the end plug to be on the bottom when finished so I started the red lights at the top of the 'no' slash bar and went down the bar.Think it out first and draw it in a line in your head. This is so the plug is at the bottom or in my case the extra lights were.
Make sure you take tape and cover any holes you punched but had no bulb in.Just tape them from the front side of the now finished Christmas decoration.
