While wondering what kind of Instructable I should make I came across some LEDs. Wondering what to make with them I finally figured it out. A fan that has LEDs in it! Sure you can buy one, but you can't as easily change the colors or places of the LEDs. With this you can!

Step 1: What you need.

You will need:

Tape (Duct tape works best) Shown here is electrical tape.
A small motor. Mine came from one of those things where you put lip gloss on it, turn it on, and drop coloring on the lip gloss.
Batteries. For the motor and the LEDs. I used two button cell batteries for each LED and taped them around the sides so they would stay together.
Two LEDs. You can use more but don't use more batteries because it will make it too heavy.
(Not pictured) Cardboard for the fan "blades"
im doin this on a ceiling fan
make em motion sensitive or they'll just die after a short while.
i dont know, how fast does it spin?
That'd be awesome!!!!
You should call them LED Spinees
You know, you could change the wiring so that the centripetal force of the fan can stretch out a spring and make a connection to light up the LED. I might try this.
If you do you should make an instructable about it.
You should sell these things because they are cool and I would buy them cause i dont got the stuff needed.
This Instructable can be posted in the contest within the contest period, not something uploaded before. =/<br/>But this Instructable is awesome! ;-)<br/>
Aw darn. How do I remove it?
That's actually a pretty hard question, I myself don't know. Try deleting it... somehow. I know it doesn't help.. haha. Well, try going to the group, and click your Instructable and see if there's a way to delete it... if you're stuck in the muddy muck of Tozaka tar, ask Eric.
I just unpublished it.
What? This is a great Instructable! ;'-(
I'll republish it later. I promise.
Good, this is a very smart Instructable, it better be republished Sunbanks. ;-) Keep it up, you're awesome. Awthum.
Ok I will.
Wow This is Great, Nice Going!
Perfect for time-lapse photography... *reminded of (t3h)muffinator* <br/>
Man, why didn't I think of this, I could probably do this, I have all the stuff... dang... you beat me to it. Nice Instructable SunBanks.
Thank you! :D
