Laser-cut Xmas Tree for Spiraling Strips of LEDs

The tree looks about 20-24″ tall and can accommodate a length of LED strip about 4 meters long wrapped around 7 levels of the tree – a DFPlayer mini MP3 player is included for musical effect. The tree design could clearly be used for other purposes as well. Watch:

Translated from Italian via Google Translate:

The WS2812B neo-pixel strip attaches it to 3D printed plastic supports that allow you to reuse it in other projects by mounting and dismounting it for each project.

Today is Christmas and I published the article as a Merry Christmas and to show you what you can do with the WeMos D1 DFPlayer mini mp3 and a led strip of LEDs 60 LED per meter of about 4 meters long.

Next week you will read how to make all the necessary parts for the Neopixel WS2812 control unit and mp3 music.
