Making of the Holiday Lantern
I wanted to make a lantern that I can change its ‘outfits’ to different theme depending on the holiday seasons. So I make this lantern which I can change to paper covers and lighting of the lantern. A easy one would be just reuse any lighting of the desk lamps or standing lamps.
In this project, I custom make the paper cover for the 2017 Lunar New Year which is the Year of Rooster. And I use a pair of NeoPixel Rings as the lighting.
Making the Lantern
I have a 5L mineral water plastic bottle.
And I have a piece of color paper with patterns. This color paper is of rice paper type which is translucent.
Connecting the NeoPixel Rings
Follow the following links to connect your NeoPixel Rings to the Arduino board. I use two rings side-by-side.
