Introduction: Arduino 8x8 LED Matrix With Button
In this instructable, I am going to show how to use an LED Matrix by Arduino. Following the step carefully, and you will make it successfully!
Step 1: Prepare Tools and Components
5V power supply
8x8 LED matrix with MAX7219
Electrical conductance (electronic color code: white brown orange black brown brown)
Step 2: Connect Circuit
- Matrix-breadboard(picture 1)
Max7219 CLK => Arduino digital pin10
Max7219 CS => Arduino digital pin9
Max721 DIN => Arduino digital pin8
Max721 GND => Arduino digital GND
Max721UCC => 5v
- Button-breadboard(picture 2)
Pin 1 => 5v
Pin 2 => conductance(the other pin connects to GND) and Arduino digital pin2
- Final circuit(picture 3)
Step 3: Programming Code
The function of this code is when you press down the button, the LED matrix will appear in the shape of a heart. Changing the code can help you generate different patterns on the Matrix. In the following pictures, you will learn how to change the code on shaping shapes.

Step 4: Decorating
Can you think of any use of this instructable? I think it’s a good tool when you are making a birthday gift to your love. In the following pictures, you will find out how to make it.
Prepare a box and make 2 holes. (one for matrix, another for button) (Picture 1 and 2)
Decorate your box! (Picture 3)
Choose a nice gift and give it to your love!
