Dana Sniezko shared this LED Jar project on the Adafruit Show & Tell last week. Check out the Instructable for how to make it!
This is a fun, beautiful and inexpensive project that makes a great gift! I first started making these over a year ago and my original prototype (and many others) are still running strong.
Building a firefly jar only requires an hour or two of your time, and ever the fan of creative re-use, many of the parts can be recycled from old electronics and things around the house.
To do this project it’s helpful to have some Arduino and soldering experience….
