(Summer) LED String to Festive (Christmas) LED String!



Introduction: (Summer) LED String to Festive (Christmas) LED String!

So I still had these (summer) strings full of LEDS laying around since last summer.
Sure, they still look okay but with Christmas coming around... So I decided to transform the LEDS from last summer to a festive string of colourful LEDS!

Things needed:

- LED string (duh...) (Click to buy)
- Green and red/pink Pompoms (Click for an image)
- Some "Festive" String
- (All purpose) Glue

*optional* Gold wrap for the battery compartment

Total time spent:
30-45 minutes

Cut a small piece of string and put (tie) it on the glass bottle

Step 4: Step 4: Make the Battery Box More Colourful (optional)
