The images above show the early designs of what I was considering doing for the project.
- 6 white LED lights
- 2 220 ohm resistors
- Stranded wire
- Wood glue and or super glue

Step 1: Circuits
I wanted to use white LED lights for my project but they take in a lot of energy so it'd be hard to make a series circuit with 6 of them. That is why I decided to do a parallel circuit and the image above is an example on how it was constructed.
Step 2: Wiring
This is the image after soldering all the wires together. I left the red/ positive wire alone to add a movement to the project. i added 2 220 ohm resistor to each side to make sure all 6 lights could light up and have the same amount of brightness.
Step 3: Construction
This is the construction of the piece. My original intentions were to make a ladybug, however, my ideas changed and I decided to take a different approach.
Step 4: Completion
After painting and adding final design elements, this was the end result of my piece.
