Step 1: [SUPPLIES]
LEDs - I used 5mm LEDs. You can change the type of LEDs as long as you augment the calculations accordingly.
Bridge Rectifier - Converts AC to DC.
Perfboard - The size of perfboard you buy will depend on the size of light bulb you wish to create.
Soldering Iron and Accessories - The cheapest of soldering irons will do.
Base Plug - This product has a normal bulb's base at one end and a normal household outlet on the other. Your local hardware store will most definitely have some.
Cable Ties - The question here is not if you have them, but, rather, how many hundred of them do you have.
Cardboard - This is the main support piece for all the component of the bulb.
Wax Paper - I used a silicon cookie sheet (that rolled up blue thing) instead. You can use practically anything that has a high temperature tolerance and doesn't conduct electricity, but I have found these to be the best materials for the job.
Drill and Small Bit - I used a 1/8" drill bit.
X-ACTO Knife and Whole Puncher - These items will be used to prep the insulation.
20AWG Wire and PVC Pipe - These are required to connect the bulb's base to the rest of the assembly.
Multimeter - I always keep my multimeter handy in order to check conductivity and make sure there are no shorts.
