DIY Colorful Pictures Hangers for Lockers

This project is for students in schools where they have lockers. A lot of people stick pictures on the side doors, and this project will add LED lights into this locker decoration, making it more interesting and creative. It is a very easy project requiring simple things. This DIY hanging pictures locker decoration will make your locker 10 times more colorful, and eye-catching.

Supplies:

1. breadboard

2. different colored led lights

3. resistors

4. jumper wires of different lengths

5. extension wires

6. tape

7. arduino usb cord

8. pictures

Step 1: Take a Jumper Wire

Plug one side of the jumper wire into whichever hole you want on the breadboard, and plug the other side into "GND."

Step 2: Two Extension Cords

Plug one of the two extension cords to the bottom of the first cord, put the other one right beside it.

Step 3: LED Light

Plug the shorter leg of the LED light into the extension cord that was under the first jumper wire, and the longer leg in the other extension cord

Step 4: Get a Resistor

Place the resistor under the extension cord thats plugged into the longer leg of the LED light

Step 5: Take Two Other Jumper Wires

Take two other jumper wires. Place the first one under the right leg of the resistor and connect it to pin #13. Place the second one under the left leg of the resistor and plug the other side to another hole on an empty row.

Step 6: Repeat Step 2 ~ Step 5

Repeat step 2~step 5. Every time you plug a new extension cord, you place the one connected to the shorter leg of the LED light underneath the new jumper wire that is on a new row. Use a different colored LED light every time to make your project more colorful. In the end, plug the jumper wire in to pin #12, pin #11, pin #10, and pin #9. For the last LED light, don't plug a new jumper wire to a new row. Just leave it after you finish placing the jumper wire into pin #9.

Step 7: CODE

'void setup() {

pinMode(9, OUTPUT); pinMode(10, OUTPUT); pinMode(11, OUTPUT); pinMode(12, OUTPUT); pinMode(13, OUTPUT); }

void loop() { digitalWrite(13, HIGH); digitalWrite(12, LOW); digitalWrite(11, LOW); digitalWrite(10, LOW); digitalWrite(9, LOW);

delay(200); digitalWrite(13, LOW); digitalWrite(12, HIGH); digitalWrite(11, LOW); digitalWrite(10, LOW); digitalWrite(9, LOW);

delay(200); digitalWrite(13, LOW); digitalWrite(12, LOW); digitalWrite(11, HIGH); digitalWrite(10, LOW); digitalWrite(9, LOW); delay(200); digitalWrite(13, LOW); digitalWrite(12, LOW); digitalWrite(11, LOW); digitalWrite(10, HIGH); digitalWrite(9, LOW);

delay(200); digitalWrite(13, LOW); digitalWrite(12, LOW); digitalWrite(11, LOW); digitalWrite(10, LOW); digitalWrite(9, HIGH);

}

Step 8: Bending the LED Lights

Bend the legs of the LED lights to prevent it from disconnecting from the extension cord since it is not very tight.

Also, you can try taping them together to prevent them from disconnecting as well.

Step 9: PICTURES!!!

Stick the extension cords on your locker door, Then stick the pictures on the extension cords using tape.

Step 10: FINAL PRODUCT

That's it! You're done!! Congratulations! Now you have your own DIY Colorful Picture Hangers to put in your lockers.
