Create A Color Changing Jar Chandelier With Arduino


Make this groovy jar chandelier with arduino. by funelab via instructables

This is my second instructable: Arduino chandelier from mini jars. My first one was my : Cuckoo Alarm Clock from Hard Drive.

I wanted to give my room some special design, with mooth lighting so when I had the option to use RGB leds and a Arduino board I decided I needed my own making a chandelier.

Here is what you need to make your chandelier:


PCB sheet
Arduino mini 5V
USB Serial Light Adapter or Arduino Uno, Duemillanove or something similar to act as a HOST (detachable Chip!!)
RGB Leds (50 pcs)
8-bit shift register 74hc595d SMD (19 pcs)
Octal Bus Transceiver 74hc245d SMD
Electrolytic Decoupling Capacitors – 100uF/16V
High capacity rechargeable battery


Acrylic sheet
Spray paint
Copper wire
Insulation Sleeving
Mini jars (50 pcs)

Drill bits
Hot glue and it’s gun
Super glue
Soldering iron
Wire cutters
