Rug that lights up at night

Step 1: What You'll Need

-Wool

-Hot glue and hot glue gun

-LED strip

-Prototype pcb board

-Transistor - General purpose NPN

-Scissors

-Resistor

-Photoresistor

Step 2:

For this project a non-skid rug is needed, since I didn't have one, I decided to make one using hot glue.

If you already have a non-skid rug then you may skip this step

-Draw the desired shape on a paper using hotglue; a parchment paper would be better to use

-Draw diagonal lines to form a "net"

Step 3:

-Wrap the wool around your four fingers

-Take off the wrapped wool from your fingers. Use another piece of wool to tie the wrapped wool in the middle

-After you have a good amount of them, start Tie the pompoms on your non-skid rug using the piece of wool you used to tie the pompom in the middle. When you finish cut the excess of wool in the back of your rug.

-Cut the edges to form a pompom

Step 4:

- After making sure the circuit works, transfer it to a pcb board and solder it...replace the LEDs with your LED strip lights

Step 5:

Glue the circuit on the battery pack of the LED strip

Step 6:

-"Thread" the LED strip through the carpet

Step 7:
