This guide will show you how to transform a simple candelabra wall sconce into a high tech LED lamp. We’ve kept it simple with just 7 Dotstar LEDs, but this project can easily scale up to make larger lamps or even big LED art installations.
We’ve included lots of different lighting modes that can be controlled with an infrared remote, and the lamp will remember the last mode you selected even when it’s unplugged.
Get creative and add your own design and patterns. Turn your living room, kid’s room, or festival tent into a beautiful haven of light.
