I made this because I wanted a Christmas decoration for my desk. I searched the site, and none of the projects had exactly what I wanted. There was an LED Christmas Tree, but it was too tech looking. Keith-Kid also had a cool looking tree, but it didn't have any lights at all (and it wasn't green). My tree is sort of a mix between the other ones.
Feedback is always welcome, and your Vote in the decoration contest (or the Gift contest) would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, and enjoy!
Step 1: Materials
A lot of Green Pipe Cleaners (I had a lot of these sitting around from old crafts. I think I ended up using like 10, but it's better to have more rather than less)
1 Cone Shaped cup (Like a snow cone cup)
1 Base (As you saw in the first step, I used a car wax lid. It ended up looking pretty nice)
3 Green (or Bi-Color) LEDs (I used Bi-Color just because I had them left over from a mood light project. Green would work just as well)
3 68 Ohm Resistors
3 22 Ohm Resistors
3 Red LEDs
1 2 AA Battery Pack (You could make your own with electrical tape, but I had a few lying around)
1 Switch *Not Pictured* (This isn't totally necessary, but it makes it easier to turn on and off.)
Hot Glue Gun
Soldering Iron and Solder
