    1: Silicone
    2: The strips come with a sticky back. When I silicone the ends, it will help hold the strips in place.

    Took a lot longer than I was expecting to solder all of the connections. I tested it, and everything works!

    Another 'gotcha', the outline of the face uses 700mA, so I'm going to have to break it up so my Simple Ren32 can power it.

    I thought about using strips but you can't drive them higher that 12V for most of the strips. There are a few 24V but the cut distance causes issues. That's why I wired Flat Top LEDs in series and run them at 48V. I can run a complete HolidayCoro pumpkin at 0.8A or less depending on the color mix. See here.

    The corro is 40"x 36"

    My house isn't far from the street, so I'm hoping this will work. If not, I'll just stick it in the yard somewhere.
