I made these Christmas decorations with my son today,they are made of 6mm mdf,i cut the shapes and drilled the holes for each led.My son drilled the holes for the suction cups and he decorated the mdf with his crayolas which works well on mdf ,we had do this in my house so I wanted to use the least messy option we could.I hot glued in all the leds we popped in some battery’s and hung them in the window.I really enjoyed this project,my son was so happy it was a great Christmas project.

Beautiful and gives much more fun than just go to some shop and buy it.

Very cool, my wife and I were just talking about something like this. Where did you get the LED parts?
Assuming the wiring is very simple?

Thanks guys,David I bought the lights for 2euro for a string of 20 that were all ready wired to a double a battery pack,i would guess you would get them in shops like Walmart or a dollar store.the project cost me about 12e all together including battery’s so was well worth it for the fun with my kid
