Introduction: Stranger Things Christmas Light Wall

After watch the "Stranger Things", I want to make a led wall...

Then I try to use the blinky pixel light to make it.

Then when i realize the light is not so bright enough for the scale size, then i go back to instructable and find Akin Yildizi "Stranger Things Interactive Wall Art by Akin Yildiz in homehalloween" article and try to print the artwork and use other neon pixel and blinky tape controller and make one

Why I choose the blinkytape controller version?

--- Because the software is pattern paint from blinkinlabs which i don't need to learn coding but drawing the color i want to make the pattern. It is really easy.

Step 1: Materials:

Picture of Materials:
