Step 1: Gather Materials

Step 2: Wiring Diagram and Schematic

Step 3: Begin Assembly

-Make a hole for your switch and another for the wires from your 9v
-Solder the positive from the 9v to the resistor
-Solder the resistor to the middle led prong
-Solder the negative to the pin that goes down right then down
-Solder the switch to the negative prong and the angled prong

Step 4: Modes

-Startup phase (happens when 9v is plugged in: cycles through all colors)
