Lucky EL wire hat #StPatricksDay
Instructables user The Porsche Fan made this festive
green EL wire hat for St. Patrick’s Day.
In this Instructable, I will show you how to make an EL wire hat.
In my particular case, I made this hat for Saint Patrick’s day.
I am currently attending Missouri University of Science and Technology, and Saint Pat’s is a big deal here, so I decided to use science and technology to make a Saint Pat’s themed hat.
You can use the steps here to make an EL wire hat for any occasion. You could make a heart for Valentines Day, pumpkin for Halloween or a tree for Christmas to name a few.

CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
