    Well I don't think i've seen anything but rope lights used on them yet.. I don't have any rope light as of yet so I might try some LED's and see what they look like..

    I have seen them done with mini lights on PC, they use mini clips or zip ties to attach the lights.

    Would be better if it was warmer out.. I'd get alot more done

    Ha Ha Ha heated gloves.... Think I could get a long enough extension cord???

    I've seen them out there, just never thought they would work and be worth it. I've used those heat packs you put in gloves and socks etc and they work good. Sucks becuase they are 1 time use

    I recall seeing packs that could be re-used (you had to "boil them" in order to recharge them). A quick google search came up with..
    Re-Heater, but I'm sure there must be others out there.

    Edit: Active ingredient is "Sodium Acetate" which gives off heat when crystalizing. Kinda neat stuff

    This is a seriously old thread, but I'll just add my latest, finished project to it to resurrect an old idea...

    I made this using the monopixel concept with clear white LEDs soldered to 2-sided PCB stock cut into 1/2" squares, 3D printed stars (2 halves glued together), square pixel PCBs, telephone wire, harness tape, a DIGWDF MiWiFi controller.... it was another fun project. It'll go outside of course, but I shot this quick video while waiting for the last two stars to finish printing... I'll use it as a lead-up to my Bethlehem star on the garage roof... The shooting stars are intended to be a quick eye-catcher.



    The how-to is here: https://www.diychristmas.org/wiki/in...Shooting_Stars
