This tutorial will guide you through the process of creating a glowing Heart of Te Fiti necklace using Adafruit’s nOOds – flexible LED filaments and a coin cell battery. These nOOds are a simple yet effective way to add a touch of magic to any costume piece. Whether you 3D print your own necklace or purchase a premade one, this tutorial is easy to follow and will give you a stunning final product.
The electronics build for this project requires some soldering skills and tools, but the wiring is simple. The nOOd connects to the positive side of the coin cell battery and the switch, with the negative end connecting to ground. That’s all there is to getting this little LED filament to light up.
This Heart of Te Fiti necklace tutorial is a fun and exciting project that will bring the magic of Moana to life. With a little bit of soldering and some creativity, you can create a stunning and unique piece of jewelry that glows like the heart of Te Fiti. So, board Moana’s boat and start restoring the heart today!
