After The Holidays...

A project log for CheerLights Christmas Tree

What do you do with an old fiber-optic Christmas tree? Make it better, of course!

I couldn't keep the tree up forever, so I made this:

This is a resin Edison bulb. I used PVC pipe to make an industrial lamp housing. Right below the lamp is a NeoPixel Jewel, and nestled into the rear of the pipe bend on the left is an Adafruit QT PY. I just used a rotary tool to create a notch for it. My husband built the filament.

(One of these days I'll get a pressure pot so I don't have to deal with so many bubbles.)
