Instagram user yesthisisshana made this adorable light up Christmas tree using our battery operated LED strand.

There is a pocket at the bottom for the battery pack, and I covered the lights with a dome of wool for diffusion.

Wire Light LED Strand – 12 Cool White LEDs + Coin Cell Holder: Add sparkle to your project with these lovely silver wire LED strands. These strands are very interesting, they use two silver wires that are coated so they don’t short if they touch, then tiny 1000mcd LEDs are bonded onto the wires and coated with epoxy. The result is a very flexible silver wire with sparkly “fairy” lights that are much less visible than normal LEDs. They’re still just LEDs, but in a fun new form-factor! They’re even waterproof – you can dunk these or have them outdoors, just be sure to protect the battery holder. Read more.
