hehe pistol
dang! haha i guess you got to this idea before i could -_-. iw as going to do this except wiht a real pumpkimn and enter it in the contest but eh...too late. i guess great minds think alike. ahha
Do it. I didn't put my on this year contest. good luck and greats minds really think alike. :)
so i'm a bit confused. i checked out the home depot site but i thought that you assembled/made the light yourself. did you just buy one of the solar stakes and insert it into the pumpkin without the base? also you don't show the light in any of the pictures. after you glued the solar panel to the pumpkin, how did you hook up the lightbulb to it?
i love this idea. i am going to modify it to fit my needs but can you please tell me where you get just the solar panel? i looked at home depot like you said but they only had pre-built solar lamps. if you could help me, it would be greatly appreciated! thanks. sarah
Sure, my pleasure :)<br/><br/>here's the link to home depot:<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.homedepot.com/prel80/HDUS/EN_US/diy_main/pg_diy.jsp?prod_id=100035114">http://www.homedepot.com/prel80/HDUS/EN_US/diy_main/pg_diy.jsp?prod_id=100035114</a><br/><br/>cheers<br/>PC<br/>
Please, tell me what you think about it. Thanks in advance and enjoy my project. PC
ok, i dont know much bout solar cells but anyway; but ur gonnna use this at night, and this thing is powered by the sun, i can see 1 very big flaw in your plan.
hey, i can tell you that, here in florida, i have all the sunlight i need. The idiea here its to let the pumpkim outside, during day, to charge the battery. So, during night, i have the batteries to light the pumpkim. Last time i checked i got battery to light the pumpkim until 4am. Whats the flaw???? cheers PC
Cool, I used the same idea (solar light) for my bike light instructable. Ive taken it off my bike though, keeps falling off. Good job
well, it's quite like another instructable <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/E7M2N93HPNET9K4J8M/?ALLSTEPS">http://www.instructables.com/id/E7M2N93HPNET9K4J8M/?ALLSTEPS</a><br/>... you are about 5 instructables behind.<br/>
i stand corrected... the others where not solar.
I know. thats the trick. no one think about use solar power for something like this. Anyway. thank you to point me out that project. cheers PC
