Simple project I had broke the plant off the skull after knocking it off the table and wanted to put LEDs in it.
2 LEDs 1 Resister of calculated value 1 Old USB cable Whatever you want your LEDs in I used a air planter skull.
I chose the eye sockets of the skull
Cut a hole in the bottom with a drill or a sharp knife. Mine was hallow I'm not sure about all of them. Drill holes for the eyes ...
Cut the USB cord near the female end and strip the insulation off the Red and Black wires. The others are not used. Run the LEDs in series ...
Push the LEDs in through the back of the holes you made for the eyes. Put hot glue over the LEDs to keep them from moving.
Fill the bottom with hot glue to add weight.
Enjoy your new light
